JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. — Missouri Attorney General Chris Koster filed a lawsuit against Sacramento, Calif.-based Maximum Security Alarm for violating the state’s no-call list laws.
In the lawsuit, Koster states Maximum Security Alarm representatives are calling Missouri residents on the “do-not-call” registry to sell home security systems, according to a press release. In addition to stopping the calls, Koster is also seeking civil penalties for the violations, in addition to the costs of the investigation and prosecution.
“The Attorney General’s Office will continue to pursue companies that violate our telemarketing and phone solicitation laws,” Koster says. “Missourians subscribe to our no-call list to avoid being harassed by telemarketers, and this office will aggressively enforce the law.”
