Description

This undercover investigation uncovered a telemarketing business that claimed to employ people with disabilities. In fact, the employees did not have disabilities, and the household items they peddled over the phone to sympathetic buyers sold at prices 10 to 50 times the retail value. An undercover researcher got hired at the company for an inside look. The report prompted an FBI investigation.
