So with 200000 complaints, and only 7 fines, your chances of getting nailed as a telemarketer are only 1 in 28500 or so. And that’s only factoring those who faced complaints.
Where’s the cheapest place to set up shop as a telemarketer? I’ll be nibbling on caviar in no time.
Hey James – you need a better understanding of the numbers. I suspect that the problem telemarketers aren’t triggered by just one complaint. There are 10 notices of violations – which set out the proposed fines.
Be interesting for the CRTC to break out more detail on the complaints (number of companies, business sector, etc.)
I notice that number of complaints is declining – is that because there are fewer calls or because people can’t be bothered to complain?
