The Vermont attorney general is warning businesses, organizations and state agencies about a deceptive mailing that includes what appears to be an invoice from a telecom provider.
Several businesses and agencies have reported receiving the mailings, which contain an invoice-like document from US-Telecom/UST regarding a "telecom maintenance agreement."
Attorney General Bill Sorrell said Thursday the invoice is actually a solicitation. Businesses that respond and pay will be enrolled in ongoing services and continue to receive notices. The office says the Better Business Bureau has documented more than 400 complaints against UTC.
