    I'm amazed that nobody in the fraud capitol of the US (Florida) was involved.

    Trust me, we have our own:

    AG sues local company for deceptive checks

    The Florida Attorney General's Office has sued a Palm Beach company for sending checks to businesses and customers that, when cashed, caused them to be billed a monthly charge to their phone bill or bank account.

    The suit, which alleges deceptive business practices, said Boca Raton-based Directory Billing LLC did not sufficiently disclose the results of cashing the checks.

    The law suit says the company is no longer sending the flyers and accompanying checks, however, it is still collecting the monthly charges of $29.95 or $34.95, and that more than $10 million has been collected nationwide.

    Directory Billing could not immediately be reached for comment.

    The suit also questions how consumers could knowingly pay hundreds of dollars to be listed on an Internet-based phone directory when that directory cannot be readily found without first knowing the specific Web site address.

    The lawsuit was filed under Florida's Unfair and Deceptive Trade Practices Act. Penalties for violating the act include fines of $10,000 per violation or $15,000 if the victim is a senior citizen or disabled individual. The attorney general's office can also request that the court issue an injunction against the company, requiring them to provide better notice to affected consumers.
