Consolidated Travel Holdings Group is the latest to disrespect the CRTC and has paid a $200,000 penalty for violating the rules of the DNCL. You’ve probably received automated calls from this company promising a free cruise to the Bahamas to complete a survey. Consolidated Travel Holdings is based in Florida and the CRTC worked with the U.S. Federal Trade Commission to push the fine through. Consolidated Travel Holdings Group has also “agreed to voluntarily cease making unsolicited telemarketing calls to Canadian consumers.”
To date, over 12.7 million numbers have been registered with the DNCL, and the CRTC has collected over $6 million in penalties.
