October 31, 2012Ms. P. Michele EllisonBureau Chief Enforcement BureauFederal Communications Commission445 12th Street SWWashington, DC 20554Dear Ms. Ellison:We request that the Federal Communications Commission investigate a series of spam texts sent to consumers’ wireless telephones in violation of the TelephoneConsumer Protection Act, 47 U.S.C. § 227 (the “TCPA”). Based on information andbelief, and given the concentration of calls in a short period of time to a large but unknown number of individuals, we ask you to investigate whether the companyccAdvertising has illegally used auto-dialing technology to send unwanted text messages to consumers.In recent days, individuals supporting the Human Rights Campaign and others havereceived such text messages as: “Obama endorses the legality of same-sexmarriage. Say No to Obama at the polls on Nov 6.” The messages were purportedlysent bySMS@Aicett.com. However, the URL Aicett.com simply sends users to ablank web page. The identity of the owner of Aicett.com was hidden, until theinternet service firm GoDaddy.com revoked the owner’s anonymity due to aviolation of the service’s terms of use. Investigative journalists now report thesender was ccAdvertising, which the
Washington Post 
describes as “a political phoneand text-messaging vendor with a history of sending unsolicited messages.”
Washington Post 
, October 31, 2012 available at tinyurl.com/WPccadv. Theconsumers did not ask to receive these text messages and did not give their priorexpress consent to ccAdvertising to have text messages sent to their cell phones.Because ccAdvertising is a repeated violator of the TCPA, and for the reasonsoutlined below, we urge you to find that ccAdvertising knowingly and willfullyviolated the TCPA by sending these texts, and impose the maximum fine of $10,000per violation.
