Published 4:00 pm Wednesday, November 17, 2021

Chairman Dane Maxwell of the Mississippi Public Service Commission announced charges this week to eight companies with alleged violations to Mississippi’s No Call Law. A joint investigation by the Commission and Office of the Attorney General found these companies have allegedly called hundreds of consumers whose numbers are listed on Mississippi’s Do Not Call Registry.

These charges reflect a combined total of $5,440,000 in potential fines.

Notices of alleged violations have been filed against:

• AM Protection, Inc

• Straight Marketing

• Student Loan Financial Assistance, LLC

• Thrio/ Crisp Marketing, LLC

• Transparent BPO, LLC

• Vacation Tour and Travel

• Weibaio, GMEI, DTCC

• Zealous Services

“The Commission works closely with Attorney General Lynn Fitch’s office every day to ensure these illegal telemarketers know not to take advantage of Mississippians,” Maxwell said. “Our efforts are ongoing, but as always, we need help from consumers who can help us catch these illegal callers.”
