I am getting annoyed by Dish Network and it’s spamming calls to promote their services! This 866-668-8047 number from Dish keeps bugging me anytime of the day! I do not remember not getting a ‘robotic’ call from the company at least twice each month.
I’ve read today that this spam calling is against U.S. Federal Trade Commission (FTC) rules. In fact, FTC is suing Dish Network Corp for violating telemarketing rules by calling millions of customers.
The FTC is asking Dish to pay civil penalties and to stop making such calls. The agency said in a court filing on Thursday that the violations could bring a fine of $11,000 to $16,000 per call, depending on when the calls were made.
Dish is also involved in a 2009 lawsuit with the U.S. Department of Justice for calling numbers on the “Do Not Call” list and making automated calls, or “robocalls.”
I hope FTC wins and Dish Network gets fined! As of the moment, I am putting the 866-668-8047 Dish Network number on my spam list!
