Last year, Lifewatch’s telemarketing firm, Worldwide Info Services, had charges brought against it by the FTC and the State of Florida. Lifewatch is alleged to be aware of, and responsible for, illegal activities in that case and to have continued the practices using other telemarketing firms.
The complaint alleges that Lifewatch violated the Do Not Call Registry by bombarding senior citizens with robocalls. The calls typically had fake caller ID information in an attempt to further deceive the consumers.
Lifewatch’s actions are alleged to violate the FTC Act, the FTC’s Telemarketing Sales Rule, and Florida’s Unfair and Deceptive Trade Practices Act.
