Auto Warranty Robocallers Call Indiana Attorney General At Home

Protip for telemarkers: If you’re going to engage in random robodialing to unlisted cell phones, pray very very hard that you do not dial the attorney general of a state in which you plan to continue doing business.

This will not end well for anyone except, perhaps, the good people of the state of Indiana. It’s sort of like the opposite of an EECB. Annoy a powerful person, and it will get results.

According to the Indianapolis Star:

[Attorney General Greg Zoeller’s] office received 160 complaints about similar unsolicited calls, most of them pushing auto warranties. Although his wife urged him to file his own complaint after he received two calls in the past couple of weeks, Zoeller didn’t. He pulled out the big guns.

“By the time you start calling on the state’s attorney general,” Zoeller said, “you’ve blasted out one too many.”
