ISP involved in e-mail fraud

Date: February 12, 2007

A U.S. federal jury convicted the former owner and president of ATE Tel Solutions Inc., a telecommunications and Internet service provider, on seven of nine counts of wire fraud in a scheme to defraud the E-Rate program, the U.S. Department of Justice said Friday.

Rafael G. Adame was convicted of submitting fraudulent invoices for payment to the U.S. Federal Communications Commission's Universal Service Administrative Company. The E-Rate program provides subsidies to schools and libraries in poor, and often rural, areas of the U.S. so that they can afford Internet connectivity, computers and communications networks.
