The Mississippi Public Service Commission said Friday in a release that it has imposed civil penalties of $440,000 against tollfreezone.com Inc.’s alleged violations of the state’s No-Call law. The defendants were alleged to have violated the law on at least 88 occasions.
The company allegedly failed to register with the PSC as telephone solicitors and failed to purchase the Mississippi Do Not Call List. The defendants did not respond when confronted with complaints, according to the commission.
“Harassing citizens of Mississippi will not be tolerated by the commission. Other violators of Mississippi’s No-Call law should take this fine as a warning that they will be prosecuted and held accountable for their actions,” Northern District Commissioner Brandon Presley said in the release.
Mississippians who wish to add their home telephone number to the No Call list should contact the PSC at (800) 356-6428 or online at www. psc.state.ms.us/nocall.
