The Alabama telemarketing surety bond is required by the Attorney General of Alabama. The bond is in place to protect the public and to help ensure that the telemarketing companies follow the legislation currently in place for these companies.
According to the Code of Alabama Section 9-19A-5, if you would like to be a commercial telephone seller in the state, you must
first be licensed to do so. A commercial telephone seller is any person who engages in commercial telephone solicitation. You may apply for the license using the portal found at the Office of the Attorney General website. Be prepared to answer the usual questions such as your name, date of birth, Social Security Number, and home address. You must also indicate if you have had previous experience as a commercial telephone seller. Something that you will also need to prepare is a script or outline a salesperson will use for soliciting. You may check for the what else you would need to indicate on the application form on this form.
Another thing that you will need to submit is a surety bond, which according to Section-19A-10 should be a minimum of $50,000. This bond is in place in order for the state to be assured that you will conduct your business in a manner that follows the rules and regulations stated in the Alabama Telemarketing Act.
