Virginia Attorney General Recovers $300,000 from Robocallers

  • Virginia AG Mark Herring reached a settlement with two telemarketing companies, Adventis, Inc. and Skyline Metrics, LLC, and a related individual (collectively “Adventis”), to resolve allegations that they engaged in illegal robocalling and deceptive marketing practices in violation of federal and state laws relating to robocalling and telephone marketing and sales.
  • According to the complaint, Adventis allegedly placed hundreds of thousands of calls, including thousands of calls to numbers on the federal Do Not Call Registry, to deceptively pitch that its car sales services had a money-back guarantee.
  • Under the terms of the consent judgment, among other things, Adventis is permanently enjoined from robocalling and will pay $300,000 in restitution to affected consumers.
