The "Representative from Amazon" Offers a Website that will Bring You Thousands of Dollars

This one of the offers you might get by phone today.  The FTC says that Phoenix-based telemarketers bilked consumers out of millions with fake promises of free grant money and internet business opportunities.


The caller says he represents Amazon and is offering you a website that will bring you thousands of dollars in commissions when people use it to link to and make purchases. The caller says you need to pay fees — ranging from several hundred to several thousand dollars — but that you’ll earn your money back, and more, in 'no time'.
