Individual in business directory scheme banned from telemarketing

OTTAWA, August 30, 2013 — The Competition Bureau announced today that Kevin Secours has been prohibited from engaging in telemarketing for 10 years by the order of the Superior Court of Quebec.

The prohibition order against Mr. Secours was issued July 26, 2013, following a Competition Bureau investigation that uncovered evidence of a telemarketing scheme in which a Montréal company operating as GOAM Media deceived businesses in the United States into paying for business directory listings they had not ordered.
