In a lawsuit filed in Shawnee County District Court last month, Schmidt accused Peter B. Tolman II, d/b/a Leads Direct Marketing of Oakley, Calif., of violating the Kansas No Call Act.
The lawsuit alleges the defendant violated the Kansas No Call Act by calling Kansas consumers registered on the Do-Not-Call list, failing to consult the National Do Not Call Registry and failing to promptly and accurately identify themselves when calling Kansas consumers.
In 2013, the attorney general’s office received multiple complaints from Kansans who had received telemarketing calls from Leads Direct Marketing on behalf of other businesses seeking to advertise and sell home security systems and/or security monitoring systems.
“Kansans who have registered their phone numbers on the do-not-call list deserve to have their privacy respected,” Schmidt said. “Our office will continue to enforce the law and take action against those who violate it.”
