FTC Files Suit Against Car Warranty Robocallers

As anticipated, the FTC has filed suit in federal court in Chicago against many of the companies behind the car warranty robocalls plaguing the nation.

FTC Chairman Jon Leibowitz called it “one of the most aggressive” telemarketing schemes the agency has ever seen.

“I’m not sure which is worse, the abusive telemarketing tactics of these companies, or the way they try to deceive people once they get them on the phone,” Leibowitz said. “Either way, we intend to shut them down.”

Aww yeah. Shut them down.
