Submission + - FTC Crackdown Continues for DNC Violators (arstechnica.com)

An anonymous reader writes: Previously, the FTC announced $7.7 million in penalties for violations of the National Do Not Call (DNC) Registry. However one company and its owner are being specifically targeted. The FTC has filed a complaint against Global Mortgage Funding and Damian Robert Kutzner in federal court. The FTC alleges that Global Mortgage Funding and its officer, Damian Robert Kutzner, made "hundreds of thousands of calls" to consumers on the DNC Registry in addition to failing to provide required caller ID information. They have also failed to pay DNC Registry fees, and have abandoned calls when consumers answered the phone. The FTC says that the vote authorizing the complaint, to be pursued by the DoJ, was unanimous at five to zero.
