Sec. 6101. Findings

-STATUTE-

The Congress makes the following findings:

(1) Telemarketing differs from other sales activities in that

it can be carried out by sellers across State lines without

direct contact with the consumer. Telemarketers also can be very

mobile, easily moving from State to State.

(2) Interstate telemarketing fraud has become a problem of such

magnitude that the resources of the Federal Trade Commission are

not sufficient to ensure adequate consumer protection from such

fraud.

(3) Consumers and others are estimated to lose $40 billion a

year in telemarketing fraud.

(4) Consumers are victimized by other forms of telemarketing

deception and abuse.

(5) Consequently, Congress should enact legislation that will

offer consumers necessary protection from telemarketing deception

and abuse.

CONGRESSIONAL FINDINGS

Pub. L. 106-534, Sec. 2, Nov. 22, 2000, 114 Stat. 2555, provided

that: ''Congress makes the following findings:

''(1) Older Americans are among the most rapidly growing

segments of our society.

''(2) Our Nation's elderly are too frequently the victims of

violent crime, property crime, and consumer and telemarketing

fraud.

''(3) The elderly are often targeted and retargeted in a range

of fraudulent schemes.

''(4) The TRIAD program, originally sponsored by the National

Sheriffs' Association, International Association of Chiefs of

Police, and the American Association of Retired Persons unites

sheriffs, police chiefs, senior volunteers, elder care providers,

families, and seniors to reduce the criminal victimization of the

elderly.

''(5) Congress should continue to support TRIAD and similar

community partnerships that improve the safety and quality of

life for millions of senior citizens.

''(6) There are few other community-based efforts that forge

partnerships to coordinate criminal justice and social service

resources to improve the safety and security of the elderly.

''(7) According to the National Consumers League, telemarketing

fraud costs consumers nearly $40,000,000,000 each year.

''(8) Senior citizens are often the target of telemarketing

fraud.

''(9) Fraudulent telemarketers compile the names of consumers

who are potentially vulnerable to telemarketing fraud into the

so-called 'mooch lists'.

''(10) It is estimated that 56 percent of the names on such

'mooch lists' are individuals age 50 or older.

''(11) The Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Federal

Trade Commission have provided resources to assist private-sector

organizations to operate outreach programs to warn senior

citizens whose names appear on confiscated 'mooch lists'.

''(12) The Administration on Aging was formed, in part, to

provide senior citizens with the resources, information, and

assistance their special circumstances require.

''(13) The Administration on Aging has a system in place to

inform senior citizens of the dangers of telemarketing fraud.

''(14) Senior citizens need to be warned of the dangers of

telemarketing fraud before they become victims of such fraud.''

SENIOR FRAUD PREVENTION PROGRAM
