FBI bust reveals another scam rooted in Las Vegas

The FBI’s telemarketing raid this week has pointed out yet another unflattering national distinction for Las Vegas.

We are ground zero for shady boiler-room operations that are ripping off struggling businesses across the country through false promises of securing federal funding for them.

The task of investigating the dozens of companies here preying on those businesses is daunting.

Sources knowledgeable about the telemarketing companies predict the FBI and other law enforcement agencies will have no shortage of targets in this scam for years to come.

The court system will get to know the culprits, too.
