JACKSON, Miss. (AP) - Mississippi regulators have ordered a Florida company named Active Periodicals to pay $25,000 for violating the state’s ban on unwanted telemarketing.

The Public Service Commission voted Tuesday to impose the penalty against Active Periodicals, which is based in Deerfield Beach.

It is 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 Active Periodicals failed to register as a telemarketer, failed to buy the state’s no-call list and made unauthorized calls to phone numbers in Mississippi.

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