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

Release Date: Apr 25, 2019

TOPEKA – (April 25, 2019) – A Kansas 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.

Sunflower Senior Solutions, Inc., of Silver Lake, agreed to a consent judgment ordering it to pay $10,000 in fees and civil penalties. The judgment was approved April 23 by Judge Teresa Watson in Shawnee County District Court. In addition, Sunflower Senior Solutions, Inc., was enjoined from further violations of the Kansas No-Call Act and the Kansas Consumer Protection Act. A portion of the monetary judgment has been suspended on the condition that the company comply with the terms of the injunction.

“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 Sunflower Senior Solutions in 2018 after receiving complaints from Kansas consumers about receiving unsolicited telemarketing calls. The complaints alleged that employees of Sunflower Senior Solutions were calling Kansas consumers on the Do-Not-Call registry.
