Beverly Hills Telemarketing Fraud Defense Attorneys
The rise of sophisticated Internet and telemarketing scams has led authorities to increase the resources they devote to investigating and prosecuting these offenses. Unfortunately, it is all too easy for legitimate companies to get snared in an investigation, and for individuals and businesses to find themselves the target of prosecution.
A Focused, Results-Driven Approach To Telemarketing Fraud Defense
Based in Beverly Hills, California, the attorneys at Kaplan Marino are well-known across the nation and internationally for defending clients accused of telemarketing fraud and other white collar criminal offenses. Our partners have never been a part of any prosecutorial agency, instead focusing all of their efforts on defending those who find themselves in the government’s crosshairs. We have the skills and knowledge necessary to handle even the most complex telemarketing fraud matters, and to provide our clients with the information they need to make well-informed decisions about their cases. For example:
- Authorities often look for situations involving a letter or email being sent to individuals and then followed up by a phone call. They will also look for contact attempts that request credit card or bank account information, request payment before a product is sent to a consumer, claim to be from family members who are in financial distress, or state that the recipient has won a lottery or financial prize.
- International calls are subject to additional scrutiny. The government often accuses operations in Canada and other foreign jurisdictions of buying lists of contacts in the United States, creating "boiler room" operations and then cold calling those named on the lists.
- Telemarketing fraud is routinely charged as wire and mail fraud charges. Due to more charges being included in an indictment, the stakes for any telemarketing fraud matter are exceptionally high.
With more than 45 years of courtroom experience between our attorneys, we are able to use effective motion practice and aggressive trial strategies to eliminate or minimize our clients’ exposure to the harsh penalties and collateral consequences these charges carry.
