Presley Announces $725,000 in Fines for Alleged No Call Violations

JACKSON, MISSISSIPPI (November 5, 2014) – Following today’s monthly open meeting of the Public Service Commission, Northern District Commissioner Brandon Presley announced that the PSC has imposed civil penalties totaling $725,000 against three companies for alleged violations of the state’s No-Call law.
 The alleged violators are Financial Knowledge Network, Inc., which was fined $680,000, HME Providers, Inc., which was fined $30,000, and Fountain of Youth Bathrooms, Inc., which was fined $15,000.

In complaints received by the Commission, the companies were alleged to have made unauthorized telephone solicitations and failed to register with the PSC as telephone solicitors. All were served by the PSC and all failed to respond to the complaints, bringing the imposition of civil penalties by default.
