If you are seeking to contact the United States Telecom Association (USTelecom) regarding an invoice you have recently received for a ‘Telecom Maintenance Agreement,’ please be advised that we are not the company that sent you this invoice (we are in fact an association that represents broadband providers).
We are aware that a company calling itself both ‘UST’ and ‘US Telecom’ has been sending these fraudulent invoices to school districts, small businesses and other organizations. An example of this invoice can be found here.
USTelecom recently became aware of this company’s fraudulent activity, and is working through all available legal avenues to address this issue. In fact, the Attorneys General for the states of New York and North Dakota have already sent cease and desist letters to this company. Find information regarding each at the following links:
- Connecticut (Cease and Desist Letter issued)
- Illinois (Lawsuit filed)
- New York State (Advisory issued)
- North Dakota (Cease and Desist Letter) (Adobe Acrobat required)
- Rhode Island (Advisory issued)
- Washington State (Advisory issued)
In the meantime, we understand your frustration and strongly encourage you to contact your state Attorney General. To assist you in this regard, you can find a full listing of state Attorneys General here at the website of the National Association of Attorneys General.
You may also wish to file a complaint with the Better Business Bureau, or the Federal Trade Commission. Information for each is listed below:
