JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (Legal Newsline) - Missouri Attorney General Chris Koster filed a lawsuit Tuesday against a Utah company that allegedly made solicitations to Missourians on the state's no call list.
Green Wire Ventures LLC allegedly made solicitation calls for medical-alert devices and home security systems to residents on the no call list. Koster filed the lawsuit against Green Wire Ventures and David Lee, the company's CEO, after receiving multiple complaints from people who allegedly received the unwanted calls.
"Missourians place their phone numbers on our no call list for a very simple reason - they do not want to receive annoying, unwanted calls," Koster said. "We will continue to take action against companies that ignore our state law."
Koster's lawsuit requests that the court stop Green Wire Ventures from calling Missouri residents on the no call list. The lawsuit also seeks civil penalties, attorney costs and court costs.
Missourians are able to sign up for the no call list through Koster's website or by calling his office. Missouri residents can register both cell phone and land phone numbers on the list.
