News : FCC Takes Aim at Annoying Telemarketing Calls
Orlando, FL, USA, June 22, 2015 -- Federal regulators introduced a new rule that will crack down on businesses that send you unwanted phone calls and text messages.

Offenders could face up to $1,500 in fines per call, meaning they pay you if they break the rules.
