With decades of experience defending all types of fraud, including telemarketing fraud, The Blanch Law Firm is exceptionally qualified to defend any individual or organization accused of telemarketing fraud. Over the years, the firm has highly developed defense techniques which have helped numerous clients avoid jail time and serious fines for telemarketing fraud scams. The United States Department of Justice (DOJ) and the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) have run various sting operations which prosecuted thousands of individuals for telemarketing fraud, sentencing them to prison and levying heavy fines. The Blanch Law Firm specializes in defending those who are facing serious legal consequences for telemarketing fraud.
Telemarketing fraud is prosecuted by the following government agencies: DOJ; FTC; United States Attorney's Offices; Consumer Futures Trading Commission; National Association of Attorneys General and many others. They've worked together on sting operations such as Operation Disconnect and Operation Senior Sentinel. These operations brought federal criminal charges against some of the best telemarketing operations and more than 1,300 fraudulent telemarketers. Many of these cases have resulted in sentences that included not only significant imprisonment, but also substantial orders or restitution and forfeiture to maximize the return of victims' losses.
There are various types of telemarketing fraud scams that law enforcement and white collar crime agencies keep an eye out for. In defending individuals accused of telemarketing fraud crimes, The Blanch Law Firm has experience with initial investigation, extradition, arrests, grand jury indictments, bail hearings, arraignment , plea negotiations, trials, verdicts, pre-sentencing investigation and reports, post-conviction appeals, writs and motions, probation, jail or prison and parole. Types of telemarketing fraud crimes include:
Gimme Gifts Scams
Prize Promotion Scams
Advanced Payment Scams
Magazine Promotion Schemes
Office Supply Scams
Lottery Ticket Scams
Tax Payment Schemes
Vending Machine Fraud
Jury Service Scams
Impersonating Public Officials
Credit Card Scams
The Blanch Law Firm has experience defending each of these types of telemarketing fraud charges. Along with in-depth knowledge of the law and working with top telemarketing professionals, the firm regularly deals with attorneys at various government agencies. This experience separates the firm from other law firms.
The Blanch Law Firm has experience with 18 U.S.C. §§ 2325-2327, 18 U.S.C. § 1343 (Wire Fraud), 18 U.S.C. § 1341 (Mail Fraud), and 18 U.S.C. § 371 (conspiracy to engage in mail and wire fraud). Each of these statutes carries a maximum term of imprisonment of five years. As the DOJ has increasingly included charges under the federal money-laundering statutes (18 U.S.C. §§ 1956 and 1957), it's important to note the firm has experience defending against such charges as well. Each of these latter statutes carries a maximum term of imprisonment of twenty years and ten years, respectively, and provides the DOJ with a basis to obtain criminal forfeiture of the telemarketers' property. In some cases, where fraudulent telemarketers have misled banks when they applied for merchant accounts to process victims' credit-card charges, the Department has also charged the telemarketers with financial institution fraud (18 U.S.C. § 1344). That statute carries a maximum term of imprisonment of 30 years.
This experience, in addition to experience with, and knowledge of, the Senior Citizens Against Marketing Scams Act (18 U.S.C. § 2326), The Blanch Law Firm is a highly qualified law firm for defending telemarketing fraud charges.
