“We are committed to charging every, single predatory telemarketer that violates the No-Call law. Mississippians deserve to have their privacy protected. This action sends a message to these companies and others that if you invade the privacy of our citizens, the PSC is coming after you,” said Commissioner Presley in a press release.

Presley encouraged residents to download the commission's smartphone app that allows users to immediately report calls from their cell phone.
