PSC levies largest-ever fine
JACKSON — The Mississippi Public Service Commission (PSC) has issued a fine totaling $455,000 to SVM Inc. and Mike Moneymaker of Sparks, Nev., for violations of the Mississippi No-Call law.
Northern District Public Service Commissioner Brandon Presley (D-Nettleton) said the fines were the result of a PSC investigation into telemarketer calls made to residents across Mississippi over the past several months. Presley added that the fine to SVM and Moneymaker is the largest fine amount ever levied by the PSC to a telemarketer.
“These fines are the result of the general public reporting violations and our staff diligently investigating each case and pursuing the violators,” Presley said. “These cases are just a small fraction of the total number of cases my office is currently investigating, and I thank the general public for reporting these cases to us.”
