Kansas No-Call Act Pings Texas Company

Steven Rains - September 10, 2019 3:04 pm

A Texas company has been ordered to pay $10,000 in penalties and fees for violating the No-Call Act, Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt said today.

Touchstone Communications-II, LLC, of Hurst, Texas, agreed to a consent judgment ordering it to pay $10,000 in fees and civil penalties. The judgment was approved September 4 by Judge Teresa Watson in Shawnee County District Court. In addition, the company was enjoined from further violations of the Kansas No-Call Act and the Kansas Consumer Protection Act.

“We continue to vigorously pursue violations of the Kansas No-Call Act,” Schmidt said. “Kansans who have signed up for the Do-Not-Call list have an expectation that their privacy will be respected. We will enforce the law against those telemarketers who violate it.”

The attorney general’s Consumer Protection Division began investigating Touchstone Communications-II, LLC, after receiving complaints from Kansas consumers about receiving unsolicited telemarketing calls. The complaints alleged that company employees were calling Kansas consumers on the Do-Not-Call registry.

A copy of the consent judgment is available at https://bit.ly/2m1pO3p.

Kansans who wish to register for the national Do-Not-Call list, or to report an alleged violation of the No-Call Act, should visit the Attorney General’s website at www.InYourCornerKansas.org.
