Telemarketing Fraud | Attorney General - State of Colorado

Telemarketing Fraud

While telemarketing fraud has been around since the advent of the telephone, advancements in technology have given scammers an opportunity to easily engage in fraudulent activity on a wide spread scale, fueling an estimated $40 billion a year fraudulent industry. 

From caller id-spoofing, to internet based telephone services, to robocalls and the pay-as-you-go track phones, low cost technology has enabled fraudsters to perpetrate their scams from all corners of the world.  As technology continues to improve, scammers continue to exploit technology to easily mask themselves from law enforcement and becoming more and more difficult for law enforcement to track.
