UPDATE: Miss. regulators say Texas firm violated no-call list

JACKSON — A Texas company has been fined $45,000 for allegedly violating Mississippi’s no-call law.

Mississippi Public Service Commission Chairman Brandon Presley said Thursday that Houston-based Mobile Marketing Solutions failed to register and to purchase Mississippi’s list of people or companies who don’t want telephone solicitations.

He said the company also contacted consumers registered on the list.

Presley said Mobile Marketing Solutions representatives failed to respond to the PSC’s findings. He said the company is banned from making solicitation calls in Mississippi until it buys a no-call list and pays the civil penalty.

The company could appeal the fine to the chancery court in Hinds County, Miss.
