It shall be an

unlawful practice for a sponsor to sell or offer for sale pay-per-call services

that involve unsolicited notification to prospective callers that they are

entitled to a prize, award, or other thing of value and with respect to which

they are requested to access a pay-per-call service unless:

(1) all

advertisements and promotions for such services include:

(A) an accurate

description of all material terms, conditions, and rules regarding the

prospective caller's eligibility for the prize or prizes;

(B) a statement

as to whether all prizes will be awarded and the odds of winning each prize;

(C) the identity

and true market value of the prize or prizes to which the caller is entitled,

and a complete description of each prize including any related expenses which

will be the responsibility of the winner; and

(D) a

description of how to claim the prize without calling the pay-per-call service

or incurring any other cost;

(2) the sponsor

provides a full refund to any caller who requests one;
