FTC settles Canadian calling card scam

I thought they were real nice up there!  Seems that these telemarketers would convince consumers to purchase a trial long distance calling card for a dollar, never actually send the card but keep charging their credit card with $19.95 activation and $49.95 monthly fees.

The FTC settled this litigation by barring the Canadians from these cross-border phone raids into the U.S.  Prey on  your own citizens!
