Iowa Attorney General seeks ban on telemarketers who lied about being disabled veterans

A Polk County, Iowa, judge has ordered an Arizona company to stop telemarketing to Iowans after Attorney General Tom Miller alleged in court papers that the company made repeated false claims that the proceeds of its high-priced products were going to help disabled veterans.

Miller’s 48-page lawsuit filed today against Phoenix-based Action Point LLC, alleges that callers from the company repeatedly made false claims about being disabled so that they could convince elderly Iowans to pay higher-than-normal prices for items such as trash bags, light bulbs, household cleaners and a $50 tin of cookies.
