Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    The collection calls made by Weber & Olcese are not covered under the FCC's Telemarketing Sales Rule because they are not “conducted to induce the purchase of goods or services”.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The explanation for the correct answer is that the FCC's Telemarketing Sales Rule only covers collection calls that are conducted to induce the purchase of goods or services. Since Weber & Olcese's collection calls are not made for this purpose, they are not covered under the rule. Therefore, the statement "The collection calls made by Weber & Olcese are not covered under the FCC's Telemarketing Sales Rule because they are not conducted to induce the purchase of goods or services" is true.

    The Telephone Consumer Protection Act bans auto-dialers/predictive dialers from placing call to any wireless (cell) numbers.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA) is a law that prohibits auto-dialers or predictive dialers from making calls to wireless (cell) numbers. This means that businesses or telemarketers cannot use automated systems to call cell phone numbers without the recipient's consent. The TCPA was enacted to protect consumers from unwanted and intrusive automated calls, ensuring their privacy and preventing potential harassment. Therefore, the statement "True" accurately reflects the ban on auto-dialers/predictive dialers calling wireless numbers under the TCPA.

    Explanation
    Under the TCPA (Telephone Consumer Protection Act), a customer has the ability to give explicit consent for an auto-dialer or predictive dialer to call their wireless (cell) number.
