Another Man Indicted in $3-Million Fraud

Another defendant has been indicted on charges of mail fraud in a $3-million phone solicitation scheme, the U.S. attorney's office announced Monday.

Michael Bruce Marks, 47, and seven others are accused in two federal Grand Jury indictments of using deceptive sales pitches to market photocopier supplies from a "boiler room" sales office in Los Angeles.

All the defendants are free on bail pending trial Dec. 2, Assistant U.S. Atty. David Katz said.
