Beginning September 9, 2010, a claims administrator working for the Federal Trade Commission will mail checks to 22,154 consumers who were determined to be victims of a telemarketing operation targeted at Hispanics via ads on Telemundo, Telefutura, Galavision, and other Spanish-language networks. The telemarketers were working on behalf of an operation called Remote Response which claimed to provide pre-approved Amerikash Mastercards, as well as discount health insurance plans, free ATM cards, and phone cards. The FTC’s investigation into Remote Response revealed that many of the consumers never received some or all of the products they purchased, hindered consumers’ attempts to cancel their subscriptions during the free trial period, and billed consumers for unauthorized charges. Remote Response settled the charges with the FTC, and as a condition of the settlement the company is banned from further telemarketing operations.
