Two companies have been fined by the attorney general's office for violating the Kansas No-Call Act.

Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt said both of the out-of-state companies will be fined $10,000 each.

Prairie Life Fitness, LLC of Omaha, Nebraska was fined after an investigation revealed the company had been marketing their Kansas-based fitness facilities by phone, some of whom were on the National Do-Not-Call list. It started with a complaint from an Overland Park resident.

The other company, Vandell Communications, LLC of Illinois, was also fined for calling several Kansas residents on the do-not-call list. Vandell called on behalf of a Nevada company selling travel-related services, often using the names "Premium Gifting" or "Prize Card Services." The callers would try to lure consumers to presentations at local hotels referencing non-existent contest entry forms and expensive prizes.

“Many Kansans have chosen to ask for privacy when it comes to telephone solicitors,” Schmidt said. “We take seriously violations of the No-Call Act and we intend to enforce the law against those who ignore it.”
