The Kansas Attorney General’s office said Monday a Wichita company violated the state’s No-Call Act and has agreed to pay $10,000 in penalties and fees.
Attorney General Derek Schmidt’s office said in a news release that it began investigating Moore Water Treatment LLC, doing business as EcoWater Systems of Wichita, in 2012 for violations of the act after receiving a complaint from a Wichita customer who was on the Do-Not-Call list. The office said it received three complaints about the company violating the act, and noted another 17 complaints were filed with the Federal Trade Commission.
Schmidt’s office said Moore Water agreed to a consent judgment ordering it to pay $10,000 in investigative fees and civil penalties.
Moore Water officials were not immediately available for comment.
The office said it has obtained judgments against 12 companies this year for violations of the act, amounting to more than $1.7 million in penalties in fees.
