The Mississippi Public Service Commission has fined Agora Hills, Calif.-based Allstar Satellite $10,000 for violating the Mississippi No-Call law.

Southern District Public Service Commissioner Leonard Bentz says Allstar Satellite violated the law by failing to register on the no-call list.

In addition, he says they failed to purchase the list as required by law, and contacted a consumer that was registered on the list.

Bentz said the company failed to respond to complaints filed by the commission.

    AS YOU SAID:TELEMARKERTER NEED A LIFE SENTENCE,WELL AT LEAST THEY ARE TRYING TO WORK AND MAKE A LIVING FOR THEIR FAMILIES. A PESTERING JOB IS BETTER THAN NO JOB AT ALL. PUT YOURSELF IN THEIR SHOES FOR A MINUTE AND YOU ALSO NEED TO REALIZE THAT NOT ALL TELEMARKETER'S ARE TRYING TO SCAM YOU. IF YOU DONT WANT TO TALK TO THEM JUST SIMPLY HANGUP,ONE DOES NOT HAVE TO BE RUDE.

    I Think They Should Give All Telemarketers A Life Sentence For Pestering People On The Telephone.
