DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - An Iowa company that provides businesses with information for marketing purposes has agreed to pay $2,500 to settle allegations it helped facilitate consumer fraud through the mail.

Attorney General Tom Miller’s office said Friday that TMone (t-m-ONE’) LLC has agreed to review clients’ marketing plans and refuse service if the work appears to involve consumer fraud.

TMone provides companies with lists of names and contact information for marketing campaigns. Miller says an investigator with his office’s consumer protection office recorded an example of a TMone employee willing to help in a fraudulent scheme through mailings.

TMone, which was acquired in October by Marlowe Companies Inc. of Iowa City, denied wrongdoing as part of the settlement. It agreed to pay $2,500.
