Telemarketing fraud occurs when a person or business entices another of the phone in order to obtain money from the person.

The person may also say they are having a giveaway or some other scheme in order to obtain your financial information.

The FTC regulates telemarketing fraud and has stiff rules in place prohibiting misrepresentations by a person or business over the phone. The FTC also gives the consumer the right to opt out of receiving unsolicited telemarketing calls.
