The company behind robocaller “Tom with home protection” has reached a settlement with the Federal Trade Commission for making illegal calls to millions of consumers on the National Do Not Call registry.

Versatile Marketing Solutions, based in Massachusetts, was banned from making “abusive” telemarketing calls or calling anyone on the Do Not Call registry after it called millions of consumers to pitch home security systems.

Versatile Marketing Solutions bought a list of phone numbers from a different company and did not check the numbers against the registry. Even after consumers complained about the calls, the FTC said the company continued to buy phone numbers from the same company.
