JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (Legal Newsline) - Missouri Attorney General Chris Koster filed a lawsuit on Friday against five companies that allegedly violated the state's no-call law.
Koster filed the lawsuit against Marketing Strategy Group of Hungary, Transfers Argentina SA of Argentina, Capital Solutions Group SA, Castle Rock Management SA, Castle Rock Capital Management and Randy Cox, Jr., a Calif. resident who is the owner of the five corporations.
The companies allegedly made solicitation calls to consumers on the no-call list in an effort to sell items like home security systems or claiming to be able to lower the credit card interest rates of consumers.
"Millions of Missourians have said they do not want to receive unsolicited sales calls," Koster said. "My office will continue to protect consumers from these unwanted calls and pursue telemarketers who ignore Missouri's no-call law."
The lawsuit requests that the court stop the businesses from calling Missouri residents on the no-call list. It also seeks civil penalties and to recoup attorney costs.
