At Federal Trade Commission headquarters a joint press conference was held to announce the results of “Operation Tele-PHONEY,” a joint operation of the FTC with more than 30 law enforcement partners from the United States and Canada. The sweep included a range of cases targeting telemarketing fraud such as pitches for advance-free loans and credit cards, supposedly free gifts and prize promotions, medical prescription drug plans, tax rebates, magazine subscriptions, and “low-cost” household products. Commissioner Kovacic also announced a new consumer education campaign that would include a web site and other materials designed to help people avoid becoming victims of telemarketing fraud. close
