Commission proposes six figure fines for junk faxes

The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has issued a Notice of Apparent Liability for Forfeiture for $528,000 against an Oklahoma-based company for willful and repeated violations of the rules against the sending of unsolicited fax advertisements.

The Notice cites Clean Credit, based in Tulsa, OK, for delivering 33 unsolicited fax advertisements for credit services to 15 consumers.  The unsolicited faxes were reportedly sent after the company received a Citation from the FCC’s Enforcement Bureau, warning them against future violations, as well as two further Notices of Apparent Liability.

Violations of the FCC’s regulations regarding junk faxes typically result in proposed monetary fines of up to $11,000 per violation.
