Jefferson County man permanently banned from door-door-sales in Kansas

Release Date: Jan 17, 2018

TOPEKA – (January 17, 2018) – A Jefferson County man has been permanently banned from door-door sales in Kansas, Attorney General Derek Schmidt said today.

Jason Todack, of Meriden, d/b/a American Made Matters Corp., d/b/a KCONE Corporation, was permanently banned from operating as a door-to-door salesman in the State of Kansas. District Judge Teresa L. Watson approved the consent judgment last week in Shawnee County District Court. Todack was also ordered to pay the attorney general’s investigation costs and a civil penalty.

Schmidt accused Todack of making door-to-door sales of Kirby vacuum cleaners in a manner not in compliance with Kansas door-to-door sales laws. The defendant violated the Kansas Consumer Protection Act by failing to notify consumers of their three-day right to cancel the transaction and cashing consumers’ checks prior to midnight of the fifth business day.

More tips on staying safe from illegal door-to-door sales are available on the attorney general’s consumer protection website at A copy of the consent judgment is available at
