About Ellen F. Rosenblum
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:
Consumers wanting to subscribe to Oregon's "No Call" list for the spring quarter have until Saturday (March 15) to subscribe by phone or online. The deadline for subscribing through the mail was last week. The next "No Call" list will be issued April 1, 2003.
