Why do I need this bond?

Ohio telephone solicitor bonds are put in place to ensure that principals (telephone solicitors), as defined by Section 47819.01 of the Ohio Revised Code, conduct business according to the terms set in Sections 4719.01 through 4719.18 of the Ohio Revised Code.

The bond benefits any person who is injured or suffers loss as a result of a solicitor’s noncompliance with the legislation listed above.

What’s the fine print?

Ohio telemarketing bonds are continuous in form and remain in full force and effect for 2 years after the date the principal ceases to engage in the telephone solicitation business unless otherwise terminated or canceled at an earlier date.

The surety can cancel the bond by giving the solicitor and the attorney general written notice of cancellation at least 30 days before the cancellation takes effect.
