An Indiana-based fund-raising company has agreed to stop asking for money from Iowa residents as part of a $10,000 settlement with the Iowa Attorney General's office.

The Campaign Center and its president, Jonathan Wright, conduct telemarketing and fund-raising services for non-profit organizations. The suit says the company is not registered in Iowa as a professional commercial fundraiser, a legal requirement.
