(KAKE)-- Two out-of-state companies have been fined for violating the Kansas No-Call Act.
Today, Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt said that the companies were fined a total of more than $100,000 for violating the law.
Bene-Fit Health Products Inc. of Kingsland, Georgia was ordered to pay the state $81,500 in penalties and fees. An investigation began after the AG's office began receiving complaints in August and September of last year that the company had been soliciting Kansans by phone, marketing health and wellness products.
Vacations Digest, LLC of Orland Florida was also fined, ordered to pay $21,500 for violations. The attorney general says that company called Kansans listed on the National Do-Not-Call list offering to assist consumers in selling or renting their unused timeshares.
“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.”
