Three accused of advertising fake businesses

TUCSON, AZ (KOLD) - Three men are accused of advertising nearly 50 fake businesses in the Tucson yellow pages.

David Sasson and David Peer, both of Clearwater, Fla., and Gilad Gill of Bronx, New York are facing a fraud lawsuit from the Arizona Attorney General's Office.

It claims the men placed listings for locksmith companies in the phonebook, which redirected customers to a call center in Florida.

The call center would then contact an agent in Arizona to respond to the call and perform the service.

Arizona Attorney General Terry Goddard alleges the men falsely represented that consumers had the option of contacting numerous locksmith companies, when the calls were being redirected to the same call center.

Anyone who believes they may be a victim of consumer fraud, they can contact the Attorney General's Office in Tucson at 520.628.6504.

Consumers can also file complaints online by visiting the Attorney General's Web site at www.azag.gov.
