Examples of telemarketing fraud charges

We handle cases involving allegations of:

  • Charity schemes
  • Prize promotion schemes
  • Requiring advance payment and failing to send promised goods
  • Impersonation of public officials or other companies to obtain money
  • Soliciting victims multiple times, known as “reloading”
  • Selling or brokering names and addresses of people who have been defrauded before
  • Magazine promotion schemes
  • Office supply schemes
  • Lottery ticket schemes
  • Tax payment schemes
  • Vending machine fraud
  • Loan schemes
  • Jury service schemes

In general, telemarketing schemes involve promising something of value over the telephone and not delivering it after payment has been made by the victim. Such charges can also involve obtaining credit card information by telephone and then making use of the victim’s credit card. If you have been accused of operating a telemarketing scheme along these lines, it is in your best interests to seek legal counsel immediately.

We provide vigorous representation that protects our clients throughout the criminal justice process. We are with you at all stages, including:

  • Initial investigation
  • Extradition
  • Arrest

Enhanced penalties make it critical to have sound legal counsel

There are enhanced federal penalties for conviction of federal telemarketing fraud that targets the elderly. These penalties can include significant prison time and restitution. Because the consequences are great, it is critical to have experienced representation when facing any type of telemarketing fraud charges, whether at the federal or state level.

If you are facing a telemarketing fraud charge, you can be assured that our firm will defend you effectively, working to identify weaknesses in the prosecution’s case that lead to reasonable doubt among members of the jury.
