TOLEDO, OH (Toledo News Now) -
Federal Trade Commission has shut down a robocalling scam that has affected
many in northwest Ohio and southeast Michigan.
scammers offered lower credit card interest rates, sometimes as low as 3 percent.
In reality, they took up to $1,600 in up front, illegal fees. Customers never
saw lower interest rates.
calls often came from "Rachel" or "Jennifer," and sometimes claimed to be from the
government or offering a government-insured plan.
As a part of the shutdown, the FTC has banned Treasure Your Success
and Ambrosia Web Design from making robocalls or telemarketing.
Although this scam has been shut down, there are likely similar
scams still out there. Dick Eppstein of
the Better Business Bureau says robocalls to your cell phone are illegal, and
almost always a scam. Even if you are on the national Do Not Call List,
scammers may still call you. Be extremely cautious when receiving offers from
calls to your cell phone.
