Forty billion dollars…that’s right, $40 billion is lost to telemarketing scams each year.
The pitches are for everything from vacations and lotteries to credit card protection and loans. The person on the other end of the phone is so convincing that consumers buy into the schemes. But wait – you have just become a victim of telephone fraud!
Would you like to have information that would help you tell the difference between the legitimate sales people and calls from scam artists? Then we have just the thing for you. If you have access to the internet, visit www.ftc.gov and check out the info on some of the pitches used to defraud consumers.
You will find that the scamsters combine fact with fiction. For example, one of the scams involves selling credit card protection by telling consumers that the laws have changed and that they are now liable for all unauthorized charges on their credit card accounts. Not true…let me emphasize, not true.
