Bowling Green Company Cited for Fake Advertising

Nov 7, 2012

A federal judge has frozen the assets of a Bowling Green marketing company after finding that it falsely advertised and sold guides to obtaining a job with the U.S. Postal Service.

U.S. District Judge Thomas B. Russell ordered representatives from Career Exams, Inc. and O'Brien Marketing, Inc. to appear in federal court in Paducah on November 16th to answer deceptive advertising and marketing charges from the Federal Trade Commission.

Russell also issued a temporary injunction stopping the company from selling the guides for $120 each. The guides were versions of free information about how to apply to the Postal Service for a job and from advertising postal positions around the country.
