Solicitors are defined as live operators offering goods or services valued at the above amount or greater, and calling to a number that is in Arizona.

The Arizona telephone solicitor bond is required to protect the consumer from acts of fraud, theft, malfeasance, and any willful or harmful activity which may be committed by a telephone solicitor when contacting persons with an Arizona phone number.
The bond as such is not, therefore, a form of insurance for the Arizona telephone solicitor.
Surety bonds have three sides; it is one of the things which distinguish surety bonds from insurance policies.
The principal is the telephone solicitor company or person who is purchasing the bond, and in doing so, is offering a guarantee;
The obligee, in this case the Arizona Secretary of State is the entity requiring that the bond be purchased. They want the financial guarantee that the Arizona telelphone solicitor will abide by all laws related to the industry;
The surety is the entity which issues the Arizona telephone solicitor bond and has the financial backing to pay on any claim.
At the same time, any claims which are paid on a surety bond must be fully reimbursed by the principal, including interest, costs and attorney fees.
AmeriPro Surety Bonds is agent for the surety company.
