TOPEKA – (May 14, 2021) – A Wichita health club company has been ordered to pay $15,000 in penalties and fees for violating the No-Call Act, Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt said today.
Genesis Health Clubs Management, Inc., agreed to a consent judgment ordering it to pay $15,000 in fees and civil penalties. The judgment was approved yesterday by Judge Mary Christopher in Shawnee County District Court. In addition, the company was enjoined from further violations of the Kansas No-Call Act and the Kansas Consumer Protection Act, as well as the federal Telephone Consumer Protection Act, Telemarketing Consumer Fraud and Abuse Prevention Act and related federal regulations including the Telemarketing Sales Rule.
The attorney general’s Consumer Protection Division began investigating Genesis after receiving complaints from Kansas consumers about receiving unsolicited telemarketing calls. The complaints alleged that company employees were calling Kansas consumers on the Do-Not-Call registry.
