It has really taken the FTC ages to finally ban those annoying automated dialers that cause so much telemarketing grief during my dinners. The FTC has finally placed a ban on all robodialers with fines up to $16,000 per call. The sad part is that they made some crazy loopholes for their own use.
Politicians, banks, charities, and telephone companies are allowed to continue robocalling. WTF!
Companies can robocall you as long as they get written consent from you to do so. They also allow for informational recorded messages like from airlines and others like Orbitz. The call systems must provide an opt out system in the call and they must ring at least 4 times before hanging up and begin the recording within 2 seconds.
What do you guys think?
