Carpet Cleaning Solicitor Fined $10,000

June 21, 2007

BOISE, Idaho (AP) -- A telephone solicitor who called Nampa residents offering carpet cleaning services has paid a ten-thousand dollar fine for violating the Do Not Call registry.

The Idaho Attorney General's office says Authorized Cleaning Services used an autodialer to market its services. The A-G's office got more than 75 complaints from people who were called despite being on the no call list. Some were called several times a day.

John Belcastro, who operated the company, agreed to pay the fine and stop soliciting Idaho residents as part of a settlement with the Idaho Attorney General's office.
