PSC Charges Eleven More Telemarketers for No-Call Violations

For the second week in a row, the Public Service Commission has charged multiple telemarketers with violations of the Mississippi No-Call law. Public Service Commissioner Brandon Presley announced charges today against 11 additional companies resulting in a possible $1.7 million in fines.

The PSC’s investigation found that these 11 companies made 351illegal calls to Mississippians. Should these entities be found to have violated the No-Call law, they are subject to a $5,000 per call fine; totaling $1,755,000. Notices of alleged violations have been recently filed against the following companies:
  • Crisp Marketing, LLC
  • Executive Marketing Group
  • Silver Tap, LLC
  • World Wide Vacations, LLC
  • NFS Group, LLC
  • The Office Gurus
  • One Way Funding, LLC
  • CarGuardian Warranty, LLC
  • Priority Health Consultants, Inc.
  • First Impression, LLC
  • Senior Supplement Research Solutions, LLC

“This is the second week in a row we have charged predatory companies with violating the State’s No Call Law. I’ve asked our staff to leave no stone unturned. We have doubled our efforts to stop these criminals. These companies will get the message that we mean business,” said Commissioner Presley.

Presley encouraged Mississippians to download the PSC’s new smartphone app, which can be found by searching “PSC No-Call” in the iTunes App Store or Google Play Marketplace. The app allows citizens to immediately report calls to the PSC from their cell phones. Also, landline phones can be registered at www.psc.state.ms.us or by calling Commissioner Presley’s office at 1-800-637-7722

A charge is an allegation in an enforcement action. The companies involved in this investigation will be afforded all rights of due process of law.
