A lawsuit claims the Vancouver-based operation mailed 20 million print ads and made over 11 million unwanted robocalls to Oregon residents

The lawsuit claimed U.S. Air Ducts, its owners and their associated companies violated Oregon’s Unlawful Trade Practices Act by promising customers a “seasonal special” in print advertisements.
