We got -- family in Montana's being accused of allegedly running a seventy million dollar bogus phone scam.
Using a maze of companies throughout unauthorized charges to customers phone bills all to -- their own legal bills.
Of the seventy million the FDC says they have return on the forty million but they're also saying that there are many who do not know that they are being challenged.
-- -- dollar is here with us is out very criminal defense that that it -- read this -- -- the Soviet Communist.
What is this family facing if the charges are accurate and approved in cool.
OK so because this is in multiple states in the United States are it's a federal case.
It's gonna be on the them.
The title of wire fraud.
Because these monies going in and -- that's that's the wire fraud.
Those cases you start the good judge.
Or the prosecutor starts -- base level OK you did this so you're facing it was usually the minimum of six months in jail.
But that he goes up depending on how much money the government can prove what's involved in the scam.
So here this thing was seventy they gave back forty so these at the very -- should talk about thirty million dollars so you may go from a six month jail sentence to a ten year jail sentence.
-- as long as the government can prove.
That this individual that would be that father this family who's controlling this company.
He's the one who was behind the -- I can't believe that the seventy million dollars from.
Phone charge and it's well that's the thing it's this small charges obviously -- -- build -- it was 3000 dollars.
Right but it is an extra fifteen bucks an extra ten bucks you'll like I'll maybe I -- -- they're judge me on more than they should.
