What Is Mass Marketing Fraud?
Mass marketing fraud represents fraud schemes or scams committed via mass-communication media. Victims of such frauds receive emails, websites, phone calls, television, radio, mail services, text (SMS) messaging, advertisement, or an in-person meeting under the pretense of winning large cash prizes such as a lottery, a substantial inheritance, or exceptional goods and services in exchange for a fee.
Most people fall prey to schemes that lure you into paying small amounts of money. Eventually, this involves losing several hundred dollars over a while. On the other hand, there are larger fraud schemes that only target a few victims for large sums of money of up to thousands or millions of dollars per person.
Federal Fraud Offenses – Types of Mass Marketing Fraud
The internet has opened up new avenues to mass marketing frauds. With the convenient use of telecommunications and several other forms of mass communication, fraudsters exploit thousands of people with spam. Protect yourself, your family, and your belonging by not parting with your money to a business that solicits you in paying in advance.
Receiving spam on an email or a letter remains harmless. However, mass marketing fraud turns into a federal offense when you fall prey to parting with your personal information, money, and valuables in the hope of receiving a prize or service in return that never shows up at your doorstep.
