$1 Million Consent Judgment Against Company For Do Not Call Violations

Adobe Carpet Cleaning, LLC is banned from making telemarketing calls for six years after repeatedly calling consumers on the “Do Not Call” Registry. In a consent judgment reached with the Arizona’s Attorney General’s Office, Adobe Carpet Cleaning also agreed to pay the state $1,000,000 in civil penalties after making illegal telemarketing calls.

Adobe Carpet Cleaning advertises and sells carpet, upholstery, and tile cleaning services in Arizona. In 2017, the Attorney General’s Office filed a consumer fraud lawsuit against Adobe Carpet Cleaning and it’s owner Anthony N. Tafoya for repeatedly making telemarketing calls to consumers that were registered on the Federal Trade Commission’s “Do Not Call” Registry.

  1. That’s just one they were able to CATCH. Now if they could catch Emily from Google (*or whoevers robot in southeast asia purports to be her) OR the people trying to buy my house (I don’t own one) or my timeshare (same) or “give me” a “free” vacation (I don’t travel) or sell me advertising (I’m retired) so much the better. How about one million dollars PER call to ANYONE making robocalls, or cold calling numbers they have no business calling at all?

    I hope the state enjoys the money. Why wasn’t it dispursed to those that were actually called? Was the state the victim of the calls?

    • That’s exactly what I thought. The State was not harmed. In fact the citizens ears have heard worse, but how does a carpet cleaner come up with one million dollars? My bet is that the business is dissolved and the owner goes on welfare and food stamps.

      Do not call? We can’t afford it. Try hanging up. Works every time I have tried it.
