No Call Deadline Is March 15

March 12, 2003

Attorney General Hardy Myers today reminded Oregon residents of the March 15 deadline for Oregon "No Call" List subscriptions and filed actions against five companies that unlawfully called subscribers on the list. Named in Assurances of Voluntary Compliance filed today in Marion County Circuit Courts are CC Services, Inc. of Bloomington, Illinois, Krane Products, Inc. of Boca Raton, Florida, Sunterra Pacific, Inc. of Bellevue, Washington, Powerplus Mortgage, Inc. of Herndon, Virginia and Nautilus Total Fitness of Woodburn.

"Oregon's "No Call" law continues to be popular with residents throughout the state with more than 113,000 consumers having signed up to be on the list," Myers said. "The law's popularity is expected to continue along with its effectiveness in preventing unwanted telemarketing calls and our vigilant prosecution of offenders."

The five companies and their sanctions are as follows:

  • CC Services, Inc. (Country Insurance) of Bloomington, Illinois, insurance products, $7,000, numerous complaints.
  • Krane Products, Inc. of Boca Raton, Florida, septic systems, $1,000, one complaint. Signed an earlier agreement in 2001.
  • Sunterra Pacific, Inc. of Bellevue, Washington, vacation packages, $2,500, numerous complaints.
  • Powerplus Mortgage, Inc. of Herndon, Virginia, mortgage refinancing, several complaints, and $3,000.
  • Nautilus Total Fitness of Woodburn solicited memberships via the telephone, new owner agreed to permanently stop telephone solicitation, no sanctions.
