JACKSON, Miss.--If you've gotten a call from "Rachel from Cardholder Service", you're not along. Northern District Public Service Commissioner Brandon Presley told us the robo calls have been the "the largest invasion of Mississippians' privacy by a telemarketing scheme in years and that his office is working with the Federal Trade Commission and others to stop them".
They are coming in to people already on the Mississippi Do Not Call List and that means the ones doing it will likely face heavy fines from the PSC when they are caught.
"I am committed to doing everything possible to stop 'Rachel' and whoever is behind these calls. It is vitally important that citizens report each call they receive and give us as much information as possible so that we can compile a list of every violation." Presley said. Presley said citizens could report the calls to his office by phone at 1-800-637-7722 or 1-800-356-6428 or by going online to the PSC's website at www.psc.state.ms.us
