JACKSON, Miss. (AP) - Mississippi regulators have ordered an Arizona company named Action Point to pay $30,000 for violating the state’s ban on unwanted telemarketing.

The Public Service Commission voted 3-0 Thursday to impose the penalty against Action Point, which is based in Phoenix.

It’s the latest in a series of fines that the Public Service Commission has issued against companies that violate the state’s prohibition on calling people who have registered their phone numbers to get telemarketers to stop calling. The order alleges Action Point failed to register as a telemarketer, failed to buy the state’s no-call list and made three unauthorized calls to phone numbers in north Mississippi in 2011.

The commission’s penalty is a civil fine, not a criminal action.
