The maker of a popular scooter used by seniors and the disabled has agreed to pay a $100,000 penalty to settle Federal Trade Commission charges that it illegally called millions of consumers whose numbers were listed on the national Do Not Call Registry.

Electric Mobility Corporation, manufacturer of the Rascal Scooter, unlawfully used phone numbers collected from sweepstakes entry forms to call consumers despite their desire not to be contacted by telemarketers, the FTC said.
