Sprint Fined $7.5M For Unwanted Messages


(CNN) —  Sprint will pay the U.S. Government a $7.5 Million fine for sending commercial phone and text messages to customers who opted out of them.

As part of the settlement, the wireless carrier will set up a compliance program and report to regulators over the next two-years.

Sprint blames the unwanted messages on technical and human error, and says that it has made improvements.

This is the largest fine in a “do not call” case.

Back in 2011, Sprint paid a $400,000 fine for “do not call” list violations.
