Mississippi fines Scottsdale telemarketing firm

Posted: Updated:

Two telemarketers have been fined a total of $220,000 for reportedly violating Mississippi's no-call law.

Northern District Public Service Commissioner Brandon Presley says Maxim Media Marketing Inc. of Scottsdale, Ariz., and Savantius, LLC of American Fork, Utah, were fined for failing to register and buy the state's no-call list and for contacting consumers that had registered on the no-call list.

Presley says Savantius also violated the law by utilizing an automated dialing system or a like system that uses a recorded voice message to communicate with the consumer.
