The court granted the FTC summary judgment on liability for violation of §5 and the Telemarketing Sales Rule with respect to three “wealth-creation” products sold via infomercials, the John Beck system (promising real estate riches), the John Alexander system (ditto), and Jeff Paul’s Shortcuts to Internet Millions (guess what). The FTC successfully held the named originators, their companies, and related companies liable.

Glen Alan Ward, 48, a former Los Angeles resident who fled to Canada and was a federal fugitive for 12 years, was sentenced today to serve 132 months in prison for aggravated identity theft and bankruptcy fraud in connection with his leading role in a nearly 15-year foreclosure-rescue scam that fraudulently postponed foreclosure sales for more than 800 distressed homeowners.
