Telemarketer Settles Over Spam Calls

The company tried to trick consumers into thinking their auto warranties had expired.

According to the Denver Post, a telemarketer who annoyed people with millions of illegal calls selling car-warranty extensions last year has agreed to pay $2.3 million to settle a federal case.

"Damian Kohlfield and his two Chicago-based companies — Voice Foundations and Network Foundations — agreed to pay the settlement and refrain from any future telemarketing," according to the Post.

The calls were designed to trick consumers into believing their warranties had expired, even though consumer complaints noted that some of those called didn't even own an automobile.
