What “Do Not Call” List??

June 09, 2015

Many small businesses look to increase sales by telemarketing.  This can be a very dangerous and costly endeavor if done incorrectly.

The rules and penalties for violating the Florida or Federal rules for telemarketing can be overwhelming.  State penalties can be up to $10,000 per violation and Federal up to $16,000 per violation.  This is enough to put many companies out of business. I have both my residence and cell number on the Federal Do Not Call registry and I still receive calls from telemarketers.  Why?  Because very few businesses actually comply with the telemarketing law.

Our firm has defended many companies against the Federal Trade Commission complaints – along with the possible penalties, these lawsuits also get very expensive.  A good telemarketing plan will help you avoid headaches later!

Make sure you consult your attorney before beginning any telemarketing plans or you can contact us for a consultation.
