PHOENIX (Legal Newsline) — Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich recently announced that Desert Valley Aire Inc. will pay $340,000 after allegations of consistently calling consumers registered on the “Do Not Call” list.
According to allegations, Desert Valley Aire made least 25,000 illegal telemarketing calls to consumers from 2011 to 2015. Brnovich’s office received consumer complaints about the unwanted calls. Some of these consumers said that when they confronted Desert Valley Aire about the issue, the company said it was exempt from the Do Not Call Registry.
Brnovich’s office took action this year, filing a consumer fraud lawsuit. To settle the allegations, Desert Valley Aire agreed to a five-year ban from making telemarketing calls.
"I have zero tolerance for illegal telemarketing calls which are incredibly annoying and frustrating," said Brnovich said in a statement. "My office will continue to aggressively enforce Arizona’s telemarketing laws."
Desert Valley Aire is an HVAC installation and maintenance company with locations in Phoenix, Prescott and southern Arizona.
