LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - Arkansas attorney general says a New Jersey marketing company has been ordered to pay $190,000 in civil penalties for violations of the state’s consumer protection laws.

Attorney General Leslie Rutledge says Electronic Media Marketing Group Inc. has also been ordered to stop making telemarketing calls or collection attempts in Arkansas.

She said the company coerced businesses into paying for services they did not authorize, including listings in telephone directories. A telephone call to Electronic Media Marketing Group Inc. for comment was not immediately returned.

Arkansas sued the company last year. A copy of the order provided by the AG’s office said the marketing company did not respond to the complaint.

Rutledge’s office said it had received multiple complaints about the company.
