We believe the region's businesses should be aware of fraudulent bills coming from companies posing as telecommunications carriers. Impersonators have been attempting to defraud organizations and we are determined to make sure our customers are aware of this threat. The Department of Consumer Protection has launched an investigation into a company calling itself “UST” or “US Telecom” who has been claiming that the aforementioned invoices were for preventive maintenance on existing telephone systems. As a result, we are warning all of our customers and the business community we serve.
We know how hard you all work and ideally nothing would get past any of us. However, this is sometimes not the case. The scheme exploited the commonplace nature of preventative maintenance invoices, which are regularly sent out by telecommunications carriers and broadband providers alike.
