WHAT IS TELEMARKETING FRAUD?

Telemarketing fraud is usually perpetrated by businesses or individuals that convey false and misleading statements, promises, or presentations to encourage the sale of a product or services. There are many different types of telemarketing fraud, but a common factor is the attempt to make a profit without providing anything of real value. One type of deceptive practice involves contacting people via telephone in an attempt to sell them a product or service that has little or no value, or may not even exist at all. These types of schemes are usually investigated by either the state attorney general’s office, or by federal authorities, such as the Federal Trade Commission (FTC).

TYPES OF TELEMARKETING FRAUD

At the Law Offices of Ashley D. Adams, PLC, we defend all types of telemarketing fraud cases. The most common types of telemarketing fraud include the following:

  • investment and business opportunities
  • credit card, credit repair, or loans
  • charity schemes
  • prize promotion and sweepstakes
  • misrepresented office supplies
  • lottery tickets
  • timeshare rentals
  • vacation offers
  • vitamin and health products
  • vending machines
  • pyramid schemes
  • advanced fee fraud (claiming that the victim will receive a loan, lottery prize, government grant, etc.)

TELEMARKETING FRAUD LAW

Telemarketing fraud law can be very complex. Usually, telemarketing fraud is any fraudulent campaign to induce purchases through the use of a phone. Federal charges require interstate phone calls. The FTC has adopted rules prohibiting the use of unfair, deceptive, or abusive acts or practices in telemarketing. There are also enhanced penalties for using interstate calls to defraud, as well as for targeting elderly citizens. Federal wire fraud and mail fraud laws also can apply to telemarketing fraud cases. At Ashley D. Adams, PLC, we have the experience with all of these laws, and many more, to effectively defend your case.

TELEMARKETING FRAUD DEFENSE ATTORNEYS

Telemarketing fraud is a federal offense and a conviction can result in fines and imprisonment (federal penalties for telemarketing fraud alone can result in up to 10 years in prison). Those who go to trial may end up facing many other charges as well.  It is therefore critical to retain the help of an attorney with experience defending charges of fraud and other white collar crimes.  If you find yourself arrested, or under investigation, for telemarketing fraud, you have the right to have an attorney present at every stage of the proceedings. Early legal representation will give you the best chance to challenge the case at every step, or to have the charges reduced or dropped. Call Ashley D. Adams, PLC today, and we will aggressively protect your rights.
