State fines two additional telemarketers

JACKSON (WDAM) - Officials say two more companies have violated Mississippi's no call law.

Southern District Public Service Commissioner Leonard Bentz says Utah-based Savantius has been fined $205,000 by the Mississippi Public Service Commission.  Also in violation is Arizona-based Mixed Media Marketing; the PSC has fined them $15,000.

Bentz says both companies failed to respond to complaints filed by the PSC -- and both are liable by default.

Bentz adds if you're receiving unwanted telemarketing calls, please e-mail or call 1-800-356-6429.
