Copycat military websites shut down by FTC
Copycat sites led to hundreds of thousands of illegal telemarketing calls

According to the FTC, the copycat military websites prompted consumers to submit their private information to learn more about joining the armed forces. The defendants allegedly sold the information to marketers at post-secondary schools for $15 to $40 per lead. Those consumers when then receive follow-up phone calls from telemarketers who continued the misrepresentations by posing as members of the military.
