posted in: Mississippi News | 0

Northern District Commissioner Brandon Presley says the Mississippi Public Service Commission (PSC) has charged three companies with 836 alleged violations of the Mississippi No-Call law.

According to Presley, the PSCs investigation found that these three companies made hundreds of illegal calls to Mississippians. Presley says, if these entities are found to have violated the No-Call law, they are subject to a combined total of $6,300.000 in fines. Notices of alleged violations have been recently filed against CS Marketing, LLC, CMWEBIT, LLC, and Turnkey Auto Group, Inc.

Our staff will continue to do everything they can to actively seek out companies and individuals who continue to violate our No-Call law. Other companies should take these fines as a warning sign that we remain vigilant and will ultimately bring those who violate it to justice. These illegal calls against the innocent people of our state will stop, said Commissioner Presley.

Presley encourages Mississippians to download the PSCs new smartphone app, which can be found by searching PSC No-Call in the iTunes App Store or Google Play Marketplace. The app allows you to immediately report calls to the PSC from your cell phones.

Also, landline phones can be registered by calling Commissioner Presleys office at 1-800-637-7722

A charge is an allegation in an enforcement action. The companies involved in this investigation will be afforded all rights of due process of law.
