Two Companies Fined For No Call Violation
Two Companies Fined For No-Call Violation
The state of Kansas has fined two companies more than $100,000 for violating the Kansas No-Call Act. Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt said of the ruling, “A great many Kansas citizens have chosen privacy when it comes to telephone solicitors,” Schmidt said. “We take seriously violations of the No-Call Act and we vigorously enforce the law against those who ignore it.”The first company, Bene-Fit Health Products Inc. of Kingsland, Ga., was ordered to pay the state $81,500 in penalties and fees for violations of the No-Call Act. The second, Vacations Digest, LLC, of Orlando, Fla., was ordered to pay the state $21,500 in penalties and fees. Bene-Fit Health Products Inc. came under scrutiny after the AG received complaints in August and September 2012 that the company had solicited Kansans by telephone, marketing health seminars and wellness products—some of the people called were on the National Do-Not-Call list.Vacations Digest, LLC also called Kansas citizens on the National Do-Not-Call list, offering to assist consumers in selling or renting their unused timeshares. The AG's office, which is in charge of enforcing the Do-Not-Call list, built a solid case against both companies.The TCPA restricts telephone solicitations, the use of automated telephone equipment, and unsolicited advertisements. Specifically, the TCPA limits the use of automatic dialing systems, prerecorded voice messages, unsolicited text messages, and junk faxes.
