Anyone annoyed by unsolicited marketing phone calls will be glad to know the offenders do occasionally get their hands slapped.

Desert Valley Aire Inc., a firm that says it does business all over the Valley, was fined $340,000 for repeatedly calling Arizonans who are on the “Do Not Call” Registry. In a consent judgment reached with the Attorney General’s Office, the company admitted to making at least 25,000 illegal telemarketing calls from 2011 to 2015,” Attorney General Mark Brnovich announced today.

The company is also banned from making telemarketing calls for 5 years.

“In May 2018, the Attorney General’s Office filed a consumer fraud lawsuit against Desert Valley Aire, an HVAC installation and maintenance company in Phoenix, Prescott, and Southern Arizona,” according to a statement from the Attorney General’s Office. “According to the settlement, Desert Valley Aire admitted to continuing to call Arizona consumers who told the company to stop calling. Some consumers alleged that when they confronted Desert Valley Aire about the unwanted calls, the business claimed to be exempt from the Do Not Call Registry or hung up.”
