Mississippi implemented the “No-Call law” back in 2003 to help crack down on the number of telemarketers targeting Mississippians.
Public Service Commissioner Brandon Presley has announced that the PSC has charged sixteen telemarketers for violating Mississippi’s No-Call law.
An investigation by the PSC found that these companies made hundreds of calls to Mississippians. If the companies are found guilty of violating the law, they are subject to a $5,000 fine per call. According to an announcement, notices of alleged violations have been recently filed against the following companies:
- Save Big Leads, Boca Raton, Florida
- Natcap, Inc., Auburn, California
- Mister Money-USA, Fort Collins, Colorado
- SIP Markets, Wilmington, Delaware
- TMI Communications, LLC, Port St. Lucia, Florida
- American Homesecure, Inc., Dallas, Texas
- Setup Globe, LLC, Chicago, Illinois
- Riemer Marketing, Costa Mesa, California
- Empire Consumer Services, Pomona, California
- Vehicle Service Administration, Harrisonville, Missouri
- CV McDowell LLC, Fr. Lauderdale, Florida
- Florida Health Pro, Altamonte Springs, Florida
- Auto Protection Plus, Irvine, California
- Global One American Solutions, Margate, Florida
- Joshua Snyder, Brookhaven, Georgia
- A1 Diabetes & Medical Supply, Inc., Memphis, Tennessee
- Callavation, LLC, Hollywood, Florida
Following the announcement, Presley said that this type of action should serve as a warning to other telemarketers.
“We are committed to charging every, single predatory telemarketer that violates the No-Call law. Mississippians deserve to have their privacy protected. This action sends a message to these companies and others that if you invade the privacy of our citizens, the PSC is coming after you,” said Commissioner Presley.
Presley encouraged Mississippians to download the PSC’s new smartphone app, which can be found by searching “PSC No-Call” in the iTunes App Store or Google Play Marketplace. The app allows citizens to immediately report calls to the PSC from their cell phones. Also, landline phones can be registered at www.psc.state.ms.us or by calling Commissioner Presley’s office at 1-800-637-7722
