The Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services requires the Florida Telemarketing Surety Bond, or some other form of financial security in order to obtain a Florida Telemarketing license.
As the definition of a telephonic seller, according to the Florida Telemarking Law, is detailed and lists many exemptions, the applicant should first review this definition to determine if they need to obtain a license.
If a Florida Telemarketing License is required, the applicant will need to submit the following requirements to the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services (FDACS):
The Florida Telemarketing Law requires a form of financial security for the state of Florida, to the benefit of the customers of the Telephonic Seller. If a customer is wronged due to the unethical or illegal operation of the licensed telephonic seller, they can make a claim on their Florida Telemarketing Surety Bond. If settled, the surety company (the company that issued the bond) will pay out the claim, however the bond principal (the telemarketer in this case) must then repay the surety company for any losses incurred.
