Probably hired by the corrupt government. Sick of all the spoofing ones, and wish they had a hitlist to take them out and make millions. Get so angered at them!
 
Operators of the businesses are also banned from opening or running other similar companies.

I guess you missed this from the article:

Higher Goals Marketing operated a fake debt-relief service and had previously been shut down by a court order under a different name.

Meaning the profit outweighs the fines imposed, so they will be at-it again.

All assets should be liquidated, accounts frozen, extremely steep fines eating up 100% of all illegally gain profits imposed, and prison time will send a much stronger message then this horse manure.

Let me complete that quote for you -
Higher Goals Marketing operated a fake debt-relief service and had previously been shut down by a court order under a different name. It was fined $3.15 million, which the FTC will suspend once the company turns over all of its assets.
My apologies if you did not like my initial reply.

4 down, thousands more to go. I am counting the days before I finally get no more phone calls 7 days a week, often several in one day, and they do not care what time of the day or night they call either. When is the FCC going to crack down on all these callers that are using a non-working number in the same prefix area I live in and have a phone in? This is highly illegal. Crack down must include arrests, seizing all computer equipment and their assets, and years of prison time. Number that shows up in my missed calls is often not a working number if calling back what is on the missed call list. This is a Federal Offense but I bet that nobody in the FBI can catch them red handed because they obviously lack the intelligence to do so or they would have been catching them left and right by now. Perhaps the FBI needs to hire a few of the top hackers to catch these people. Hint, Hint, Hint.

I hat to break this to you, but, these two groups, "RIAA", and "MPAA", have been the ones holding the fed's leash and giving them attack training for decades.

If this is the case, then why doesn't the FBI stop this from happening and begin arresting the offenders? That is the real question.

Well, a few years back, they were doing just that, until it got to the point were they wanted to give a nickel and a quarter million dollar fine to some kid's granny, because the kid downloaded a half hour TV show.

Allegedly, now we have, "kinder gentler legal oversight", going after only the major pirate's servers. This is all documented in Techspot news postings over the past decade.

However, the EU just voted into law really stifling copyright inspection and blocking legislation.

FWIW, It's now illegal in Great Britain to make a "mixed tape"m from Mp3s you have purchased from iTunes.

Which is an overbearing and overly heavy handed assault on personal freedoms, when you can't even use music you have legally purchased, to your own ends and needs.

There's plenty on the web about that topic. Feel free to research it yourself.

So, it's not like law enforcement is looking the other way on this issue, that's for sure.
