The US District Court for the Northern District of Illinois ordered Bernard Fromstein and Judy Provencher to pay more than $49 million for their role in the 2006 Datacom Marketing Inc. case. The Canada-based scheme allegedly used telemarketing call centers to scam American businesses into paying for business directories and listings they did not order.

The other defendants in the case, Datacom Marketing Inc., Datacom Direct Inc., Paul Barnard, Judy Neinstein, and Stanley Fromstein have agreed to settle the charges against them.
