OKLAHOMA CITY -- Oklahoma's insurance commissioner has received a temporary restraining order preventing a Missouri company from making unsolicited sales calls to the state.

Insurance Commissioner Kim Holland said Monday she had filed a lawsuit in Oklahoma County District Court and was granted a restraining order against VSI Vehicle Services Inc.

After discovering the company was not licensed to sell vehicle warranties in Oklahoma, Holland last week issued a cease-and-desist order against the company.

She says the company has continue to make calls in "flagrant disregard of the law" and could face fines of up to $25,000 per offense.

Holland says the company's calls start with a recorded message saying, "This is your second and final reminder that your vehicle warranty is about to expire."
