Feds sue robocall companies

May 12, 2009

NY Senator Charles Schumer was talking about the calls at the weekend. And now it looks like federal prosecutors are stepping in. This from the AP:

Federal regulators are close to filing lawsuits against companies believed to be behind a national wave of spam “robocalls” warning people that their auto warranties are about to expire and they need to sign up for new service plans.

Schumer says the message “Your Car Warranty Has Expired” already has brought some 300,000 complaints nationwide.
