Excerpt from Telemarketing Fraud: Putting Phone Scams on Hold; Hearing Before the Committee on Small Business, House of Representatives, One Hundred Third Congress, Second Session, Washington, DC, September 28, 1994 The committee met, pursuant to notice, at 10:20 a.m., in room 2359-A, Rayburn House Office Building, Hon. John J. LaFalce (chairman of the committee) presiding. Chairman LaFalce. The Small Business Committee will come to order. Our committee meets this morning to address telemarketing fraud, a problem of growing national importance both for American consumers and for the business community. At one time or another, most of us have been exposed to a sales pitch that was too good to be true, a sweepstakes in which we are proclaimed to have already won, or a free offer that we later learn contains more than a few catches and conditions. Perhaps because we are all familiar with these types of offers and deals, we assume that telemarketing fraud is an occasional annoyance, a minor event in the modem world of sales and marketing. Unfortunately, that is not the case. We are witnessing a new generation of telemarketing fraud, a landscape of high-tech boiler rooms and computerized phone lists of vulnerable victims. All told, these scam artists took in an estimated $10 billion from consumers in 1993. The total figure may be four times higher than that, as high as $40 billion, because so much of this fraud goes unreported. Welcome to a world where threats and harassment are common sales tactics, where profits are high but prizes are nonexistent. According to an award-winning series of articles that appeared last year in the Buffalo News, one telemarketing firm took in $40,000 per week and paid its workers as much as $250,000 per year. Another sweepstakes firm grossed $11 million per year, but gave away only one car as a prize during that time. In Iowa, a single senior citizen recently lost $167,000 to the telesharks. Today's hearing will focus on both the fraud against small business and on the effects of consumer telemarketing fraud on legitimate telemarketers and legitimate small businesses. In a few minutes, we will hear firsthand how these telemarketing sales pitches take place. It is no secret that the perpetrators of telemarketing fraud prey on the weakest and most vulnerable members of society. In matters of consumer fraud, this typically means senior citizens living on fixed incomes or a small savings account, many of whom are less able to withstand the high-pressure sales tactics of a teleshark.

FBI Special Agent Kate O'Hare is known for her fierce dedication and discipline on the job, chasing down the world's most wanted criminals and putting them behind bars. Her boss thinks she is tenacious and ambitious; her friends think she is tough, stubborn, and maybe even a bit obsessed. And while Kate has made quite a name for herself for the past five years, the only name she's cared about is Nicolas Fox - an international crook she wants in more ways than one. Audacious, handsome, and dangerously charming, Nicolas Fox is a natural con man, notorious for running elaborate scams on very high-profile people. At first he did it for the money. Now he does it for the thrill. He knows that the FBI has been hot on his trail - particularly Kate O'Hare, who has been watching his every move. For Nick, there's no greater rush than being pursued by a beautiful woman ...even one who aims to lock him up. But just when it seems that Nicolas Fox has been captured for good, he pulls off his greatest con of all: he convinces the FBI to offer him a job, working side by side with Special Agent Kate O'Hare. Problem is, teaming up to stop a corrupt investment banker who's hiding on a private island in Indonesia is going to test O'Hare's patience and Fox's skill. Not to mention the skills of their ragtag team made up of flamboyant actors, wanted wheelmen, and Kate's dad. High-speed chases, pirates, and Toblerone bars are all in a day's work ...if O'Hare and Fox don't kill each other first. Produkt poekspozycyjny lub końcówka magazynowa.

Shapely Ankle Preferr'd CHATTO & WINDUS

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

What do women look for in a man? And what do men look for in a woman? And how and why has this changed over the centuries? Every week thousands of people advertise for love either in newspapers, magazines or online. But if you think this is a modern phenomenon, think again - the ads have been running for over three hundred years. In 1695, a popular London pamphlet published the brave plea of a young gentleman who 'would willingly Match himself to some Good Young Gentlewoman, that has a Fortune of GBP3000 or thereabouts'. This was just the beginning. In the 1730s, papers carried regular ads in which income or respectability were the most desired qualities, though some asked for a 'shapely ankle' or a 'non-dancer'. By 1900 twenty-five British newspapers were dedicated solely to matrimonial ads. Shapely Ankle Preferr'd tells the story of ads of all kinds - from aristocrats and MPs, bus conductors and nurses, country squires and city swells, and even from a man who had lost a leg 'due to the kick of an Ostrich, in the East Indies'. The reasons are strangely familiar: the size of the city makes it hard to meet people; they're busy at work; they've just returned from abroad. Loneliness is not new. The surprising views of Lord Byron, Charlotte Bronte and George Orwell are revealed, and every ad is a snapshot of its age, from the criminal scams of the 1890s to the sad appeals of widows after the Second World War. In this fascinating book Fancesca Beauman uses newly uncovered evidence to answer crucial questions about how humans choose their mates. The result is a startling history of sex, marriage and society over three centuries - hilarious and heartbreaking by turn.
