INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) - A company that was offering discount vacation packages via fax is now facing a state lawsuit.
Indiana Attorney General Greg Zoeller filed a lawsuit against Texas-based Encore Tour and Travel and its owner, Joseph Daniel Chavez, Jr., according to a release.
The company sent unsolicited fax ads to consumers and businesses, violating Indiana's Do Not Fax law, according to the filing. Customers who purchased the vacation packages say Encore failed to follow through with the offers.
The Do Not Fax law says people do not need to register their fax number. This applies to advertisements sent to residential and business fax numbers and applies to every fax number in the state, according to a release.
One customer says they purchased a $750 vacation package to Orlando, Florida. Encore sent the customer vouchers, but they contained incorrect information. Calls to the company for a refund were unsuccessful.
The Attorney General's Office filed another lawsuit against a company in California that sent more than 222 faxes to Indiana numbers offering business loans. The lawsuit was filed against Narin Charanvattanakit, who operates his business under the names Bankcapital, Bankcapital Direct and Trusted Bancorp.
A third lawsuit was filed against a Pennsylvania-based company called Leading Apex, LLC. The company made sales calls to numbers on the state's Do Not Call list. The company offers security systems.
