JACKSON — The Mississippi Public Service Commission (PSC) has filed a formal complaint against SVM Inc. and an individual, Mike Moneymaker, both of Sparks, Nev., for alleged violations of Mississippi’s No- Call Law.
The PSC alleges in its complaint that the company made unsolicited telemarketing “robo-calls” to Mississippians registered on the state’s No-Call List.
“The bulk of these alleged violations that have been investigated were handled by the Northern District staff,” Northern District Public Service Commissioner Brandon Presley said. “I am committed to enforcing the No-Call law and ask Mississippians to continue to report these calls.”
SVC Incorporated and Moneymaker has 30 days to answer this formal complaint. If they fail to do so fully, and under oath, the PSC may find the company liable by default. The commission can impose fines of up to $5,000 per violation in this case.
Presley said there were approximately 90 complaints filed against this company in Mississippi, with over 60 of those complaints received and investigated in the Northern District office of the PSC.
