(Salt Lake City, KSL News) -- Two Southern Utah telemarketing companies are allegedly involved in possibly the largest credit card fraud case in the United States.

Secret Service agents yesterday raided Assail Inc. in St. George and Infinium Inc. in Cedar City, where they seized computers and files.

Telemarketers at the companies had been soliciting credit cards to people with bad credit that would supposedly re-build their credit at a cost of $175.

But instead of receiving a credit card, customers were sent a merchandise card and a catalog.

Sales people would then use follow-up calls to try and sell them on another service. Federal indictments are pending.
