Re: Who paid the fine ?
Except these kinds of things are usually automated. Some system systematically calls one number after another, and if they get to a living breathing person, then a salesdroid get pulled in to do their pitch.
And then it's the company who decides what the droids should say, and in what way. I did telemarketing once out of desperation. I lasted exactly 3 hours before I decided that I was better off being unemployed.
No, there is no question that the company should get hit with the fine. Fining the salesdroid would just be a bonus cause of the whole "I was just following orders" bit.
