JACKSON — The Mississippi Public Service Commission has fined Roy M. Cox Jr. of Santa Ana, Calif., and his five corporations, Castle Rock Capital Management Inc., Castle Rock Capital Management, S. A., Capital Solutions Group, S. A., Transfers Argentina and Marketing Strategy Group, with both domestic and foreign places of business, a total of $945,000 for violations of the Mississippi “No-Call” law and rules associated with enforcing the law.

Public Service Commissioner Brandon Presley said Cox along with his five corporations violated the “No-Call” law by failing to register and purchase the state’s “No-Call” list, by contacting consumers that had registered on the “No-Call” list, by utilizing an automated dialing system or like system to communicate with consumers, and by calling consumers outside the authorized calling times.

The company will be prohibited from making any calls as a telephone solicitor and purchasing the Do Not Call List in Mississippi until said fine is paid in full, according to Presley.
