$1,000,000 Consent Judgment Against Company For “Do Not Call” Violations

PHOENIX - Attorney General Mark Brnovich announced Adobe Carpet Cleaning, LLC is banned from making telemarketing calls for six years after repeatedly calling consumers on the “Do Not Call” Registry. In a consent judgment reached with the Attorney General's Office, Adobe Carpet Cleaning also agreed to pay the state $1,000,000 in civil penalties after making illegal telemarketing calls.

"People have a right to privacy in their own homes without being hounded by illegal telemarketers," said Attorney General Mark Brnovich. "When I became Attorney General, I made a personal commitment to do everything I could to stop unwanted and illegal telemarketing calls.”

Adobe Carpet Cleaning advertises and sells carpet, upholstery, and tile cleaning services in Arizona. In 2017, the Attorney General’s Office filed a consumer fraud lawsuit against Adobe Carpet Cleaning and it’s owner Anthony N. Tafoya for repeatedly making telemarketing calls to consumers that were registered on the Federal Trade Commission’s “Do Not Call” Registry.
