Obamaphone Scam Results in $90 Million of Fines (Washington Free Beacon)
Multiple companies face FCC fines totaling $90 million for their part in a government funded cell phone scam, KMOV reports:
People who weren’t low income were being targeted with an opportunity to sign up for a government-funded cell phone. It came from Cintex Wireless, based in Maryland.
Cintex attorneys insisted they were following the rules but, on Wednesday, the FCC slapped them with a $9.5 million fine for allegedly breaking the rules.
