All three of the plaintiffs in this class action had put their cell phone numbers on the National Do Not Call Registry. They should therefore have been doubly protected from telemarketing, through the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA) which has prohibitions on calls to both cell phones and numbers on the registry. Still, the complaint for this class action claims that Magazines.com, LLC called them as many as one hundred times, in an attempt to get them to buy magazines.

It’s odd that some companies don’t seem to understand that most consumers dislike robo-telemarketing in all its forms.
