Ban "Spam" or Predatory advertising on Radio
Many of the commercials on our local radio stations sound very much like email spam. This may not be illegal but it a serious problem. I just heard a message for a Federal Student Aide help meeting, due to the number of "spam" advertisements, I am not sure if it is a private company trying to get people to pay for something they can do themselves or a valid assistance program offered by our government. Many of the commercials I am referring to are for mortgage help, loans, or credit card debt programs. They all try to sound official and similar to Public Service Announcement. I am an educated, technical savvy woman and I have a hard time sometimes sorting out these commercials as being what they are: "predatory advertising"! Please help.
