In each of the last ten years, there have been few complaints to law enforcement agencies of telemarketing fraud. Yet, in the last ten years, fraudulent telemarketing schemes have become a more and more serious problem, bilking victims out of millions of dollars annually.
Which one of the following, if true, most helps to resolve the apparent conflict described above?
A) Telemarketers convicted of fraud tend to be punished more severely than other people convicted of nonviolent crimes.
B) Most complaints of telemarketing fraud that authorities investigate involve the use of credit cards, which makes it extremely difficult for law enforcement agencies to track down the perpetrators.
C) Some fraudulent telemarketers have concocted phony investment schemes which make it unlikely that victims will detect the fraud until a year or two after the fact, by which time their swindlers are long gone.
D) Fraudulent telemarketers typically base their operations outside the legal jurisdiction inhabited by the people they solicit, so they must be prosecuted in higher courts.
E) The majority of those who have been defrauded by telemarketers have been inclined not to seek any legal remedy, out of embarrassment of being duped.
