JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (Legal Newsline) - Missouri Attorney General Chris Koster reached a $36,000 settlement on Monday with a Florida-based company that allegedly failed to abide by state telemarketing laws.
Koster filed a lawsuit against Innovative Wealth Builders Inc. in March alleging that the company made solicitation calls to Missouri residents who were on the state's no-call list. The solicitation calls claimed that Innovative Wealth Builders could lower the interest rates of consumer credit cards or offer services for credit counseling.
"The attorney general's office will continue to pursue companies that violate our telemarketing and phone solicitation laws," Koster said. "Missourians subscribe to our no-call list to avoid being harassed by telemarketers, and this office will aggressively enforce the law."
