FTC Charges New Jersey Company with Defrauding Consumers Through Sale
of its 'Matrix' Telecom Service

NorVergence Claimed It Could Provide Dramatic Savings to Small Businesses

"The Federal Trade Commission has charged New Jersey-based
NorVergence, Inc. with defrauding consumers through misleading claims
that it would provide them with years of dramatic savings on their
monthly telephone, cellular, and Internet bills. It also falsely
promised to provide unlimited long-distance and cellular minutes at no
extra cost.

"Finally, the Commission's complaint charges NorVergence with
providing others with the means to commit deceptive and unfair acts by
furnishing third-party finance companies with rental agreements it
signed with its customers. By providing the agreements, NorVergence
allegedly facilitated the finance companies' ability to file
collection suits in areas outside of where the contracts were signed
and to demand payment even if the consumers received no services.
