$3.56 Million Fine Proposed by FCC Against Consumer Telcom, Inc.

The Federal Communications Commission has proposed fines of $3.56 million against Consumer Telcom, Inc. (CTI), for engaging in deceptive slamming, cramming and billing practices.

 

Complaints were filed with the FCC from consumers who believed that CTI’s telemarketers had misled them that they were calling on behalf of their current long distance providers.
