Why do I need this bond?
Maine telemarketer bonds (which are actually filed as transient sellers program bonds) are put in place to ensure the protection of consumers.
Specifically, the bond ensures that principals comply with all requirements of Title 32, Chapter 128, 14708, subsection 3 of the Maine Revised Statutes.
What’s the fine print?
Maine telemarketing surety bonds remain in full force and effect until the state releases the surety from liability or the surety cancels the bond. The surety can cancel the bond by giving written notice of cancellation to the principal and the state 30 days prior to the effective date of cancellation.
