Telemarketing and Consumer Fraud and Abuse Prevention Act Law and Legal Definition
The Telemarketing and Consumer Fraud and Abuse Prevention Act is a federal legislation that protects consumers from telemarketing deception and abuse. The Act prescribes that no person shall act as telemarketer without having received a valid certificate of registration.
