Efectos de la Interdicción

¿Qué es la Interdicción?
La Interdicción es un proceso judicial por el cual el juez declara a una persona incapaz (no capaz) para ejercer sus derechos.
Dado que esta persona no podrá ejercer sus derechos por sí misma, deberá tener un representante. En el caso de los menores de edad, ese representante es conocido como "tutor"
En el caso de las personas mayores de edad, el juez le asigna un "curador".

mandatory injunction by court decision
FTC Obtains Stipulated Preliminary Injunction Against Platinum Credit Card Business
Court Action Requires Companies to Comply with Telemarketing Sales Rule and Halt Deceptive Practices Against English and Hispanic Consumers
The Federal Trade Commission has charged Platinum Universal, LLC, its principals, and its successor, Pulsar Data, Inc. with violating the FTC Act and the Telemarketing Sales Rule (“TSR”) in connection with the offer of credit cards to consumers for an advance fee. The FTC alleges that the Hollywood, Florida-based defendants falsely represented to English- and Spanish-speaking consumers that they would obtain a credit card after paying the defendants a fee, when, in fact, consumers did not receive a credit card. The defendants have stipulated to a preliminary injunction, which was entered by the Court on November 18, 2003. The injunction, which will be in effect until the court issues a final ruling on the FTC\'s allegations, addresses the practices alleged in the FTC\'s complaint. The injunction will prevent the defendants from misrepresenting that after paying the defendants a fee, consumers will or are likely to receive a credit card; from requesting or receiving payment of a fee in advance of consumers obtaining a credit card, when the defendants have guaranteed or represented a high likelihood of success in obtaining or arranging the acquisition of a credit card for such consumers; and from failing to comply with the Telemarketing Sales Rule. Under the terms of the injunction, the court appointed Gerald Wald to monitor all of the past, present and future activities, assets and financial transactions of the corporate defendants. Accordingly, the Monitor shall have unfettered access to all information he deems necessary to carry out his duties as outlined in the order.
The FTC’s complaint names as defendants Platinum Universal and Pulsar Data, both doing business as Universal Card Services and Universal MasterCard (collectively “Platinum”), and Jeffrey A. Ullman and Steven M. Ketover. The complaint alleges that the defendants offer guaranteed, pre-approved “Universal MasterCard” credit cards through cold calls and advertisements on television, radio, and over the Internet, including ads directed at the Hispanic community. The defendants tell consumers that if they pay a one-time processing fee in advance, they will receive a credit card with a credit limit up to $2,500, regardless of credit history and without a credit check, according to the FTC. The fee ranges from $99 to $200. Consumers who pay the advance fee, according to the FTC, do not receive the promised credit card. Instead, some consumers received a “stored value” card – a reloadable prepaid card rather than an extension of credit – while others receive nothing at all. In some instances, the defendants send instructions to consumers on how to obtain the stored value card. None of the consumers receive the promised “Universal MasterCard” credit card, the FTC alleges.
