Do Not Call Group Fined For Illegal Phone Contacts


From our "The Left Hand Doesn't Know What The Right Is Doing" File:

Service Stream Solutions, which operates the Do Not Call List, has been fined $110,000 because another division made over 6,000 illegal calls to Melbourne, Australia citizens and trying to talk them into installing low-energy light bulbs, standby power controllers and low-flow showerheads.

When contacted by us, the CEO of Service Stream Solutions said, "Dang! My bad."

An Australian Communications and Media Authority investigation found the numbers were incorrectly included on a calling list during a 10-week campaign from November, 2011.

In addition to paying the fine, the company will review its calling list processes and give staff legal training.

Wait! There's more Fileunderi madness HERE
