Commission fines two Florida companies
JACKSON — Public Service Commission chairman Brandon Presley (D-Nettleton) announced that the Mississippi Public Service Commission has fined two Florida telemarketers a total of $90,000 for violations of the Mississippi “No-Call” law and rules associated with enforcing the law.
Presley said Ski Group, LLC, of Plantation, Fla., and Higher Response Marketing Inc. of St. Petersburg, Fla., violated the law by failing to register and purchase the state’s “No-Call” list and for contacting consumers that had registered on the list. Company representatives failed to respond to the commission’s complaint.
Presley noted that both companies would be prohibited from making any calls to Mississippians as a telephone solicitor and from purchasing the “No-Call” list until the civil penalties are paid in full.
