Police Respond To National Telemarketing Scam
Kent Police have experienced an increase in reports of illegal telemarketing scams occurring around the nation. The common factor is the caller’s phone number, which originates from a local-area telephone service provider. The Kent Police Department is working with that company to identify the origin of these calls. These types of incidents are subject to investigation and prosecution by the Federal Trade Commission. If you have been the victim of a telemarketing scam or violation of a “Do Not Call” listing, you may file a complaint with the FTC.
