One person and two companies are the first telemarketers to be fined by the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission for violating its do-not-call list.

In a news release issued Wednesday, the CRTC said it has fined weight-loss coach Rob Sugar $4,000 and issued $10,000 fines to Roofing by Peerless Mason Ltd. and Waterproofing by Peerless Mason Inc.

In its decision, the CRTC noted that Wayne Gould is registered as the sole director of both of the Peerless Mason companies.

All three telemarketers are based in Toronto.

“The telemarketers were given opportunities to come into compliance … but failed to change their business practices,” the release states.

The CRTC’s do-not-call list took effect in September 2008. Companies that call persons registered on the list face fines of up to $15,000 per call while individuals can be charged $1,500 per call.

Under the rules of the list, telemarketers are identified only if they either refuse to pay the fine or contest the violation.

Sugar has refused to pay while Peerless Mason contested the violation, said John Traversy, executive director of telecommunications for the commission.

CRTC has said in the past that telemarketers are not named beforehand in order to encourage them to pay the fines rather than contest the charge. The commission has said as many as 700 telemarketing companies are under investigation.

All three telemarketers now have 30 days to pay their fines. If they fail to meet the deadline, interest will begin accruing and the CRTC will register the debt with the Federal Court.

Looks like the CRTC is starting to take this law seriously.

Another reason to seriously consider using Attraction Marketing principles. Check out this video to see what my views on this subject are.
