PHOENIX — Adobe Carpet Cleaning LLC has agreed to pay $1 million in civil penalties and is banned from marketing calls for six years as part of a recent consent judgment reached with Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich.
The Attorney General's Office announced Adobe will pay the civil penalties and faces the six-year ban as part of a judgment stemming from a 2017 lawsuit alleging the company repeatedly called consumers who were registered on the Federal Trade Commission Do Not Call Registry.
"People have a right to privacy in their own homes without being hounded by illegal telemarketers," Brnovich said in a statement. "When I became attorney general, I made a personal commitment to do everything I could to stop unwanted and illegal telemarketing calls.”
The attorney general's lawsuit against Adobe and owner Anthony Tafoya, says the company made illegal telemarketing calls to those listed on the Do Not Call Registry. The case was lead by Arizona's assistant attorney general Amanda Parker.
The Attorney General's Office offers consumer protection tips for Arizona residents on its website at www.azag.gov and encourages consumers to report fraud by filing an online complaint or by calling (602) 542-5763 in Phoenix, (520) 628-6648 in Tucson, and (800) 352-8431 outside the metro areas.
