FTC Files Contempt Charges Against Shady Marketer

Food Stamp Scam
Food Stamp Scam

A serial scammer has been slapped with contempt charges by the Federal Trade Commission, accusing him and his companies of violating a federal court order by continuing to swindle consumers.

Sam Tarad Sky settled FTC charges in 2010 for illegally marketing credit repair and debt relief services. The FTC says Sky and three of his businesses are at it again, and it charged them with lying to cash-strapped consumers by telling them almost anyone can qualify for food stamps. The defendants also encouraged consumers to mislead the government about their finances in order to qualify for food stamps.
