It’s amazing that consumers take deliberate and sometimes multiple measures to try to keep away telemarketing calls and yet companies keep calling—as if people who have told them not to call will turn around any buy something from them. In this case, the caller is Fidelity National Home Warranty, which the complaint claims has violated the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA).
