    FCC fines Fax.com $5.3 million for junk faxes

     In the largest penalty ever imposed for unwanted telephone solicitations, the Federal Communications Commission on Monday fined a California fax company nearly $5.4 million for transmitting such ads.

    The FCC ordered Fax.com Inc. of Aliso Viejo, Calif., to pay the maximum of $11,000 each for 489 alleged violations of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act in 2001 and 2002. The 1991 law prohibits the transmission of unsolicited fax advertisements because recipients must pay for them with their own paper and toner.
