AG Derek Schmidt: Florida company fined for violating No-Call Act

Release Date: May 31, 2018

TOPEKA – (May 31, 2018) – A Florida company has been ordered to pay $10,000 in penalties and fees for violating the No-Call Act, Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt said today.

National Auto Protection Corp, West Palm Beach, Florida, agreed to a consent judgment ordering it to pay $10,000 in fees and civil penalties. The judgment was approved last week by Judge Franklin R. Theis in Shawnee County District Court. In addition, National Auto Protection Corp was enjoined from further violations of the Kansas No-Call Act and the Kansas Consumer Protection Act.

“We continue to vigorously pursue violations of the Kansas No-Call Act,” Schmidt said. “Kansans who have signed up for the Do-Not-Call list have an expectation that their privacy be respected. We will enforce the law against those telemarketers who violate it.”

The Attorney General’s Consumer Protection Division began investigating National Auto Protection Corp in 2016 after receiving complaints from Kansas consumers about receiving unsolicited telemarketing calls. The complaints alleged that employees or contractors of National Auto Protection Corp were calling Kansas consumers on the Do Not Call registry.

Kansans who wish to register for the national Do-Not-Call list, or to report an alleged violation of the No-Call Act, should visit the Attorney General’s website at www.InYourCornerKansas.org.
