ND issues cease and desist order in 'office supply scam'

BISMARCK — Attorney General Wayne Stenehjem has ordered a Wyoming-based company and its operators to stop doing business in North Dakota.

Stenehjem issued the cease-and-desist order against Direct Recovery Service Inc.

Stenehjem says the company was involved in an "office supply scam" in North Dakota. He says the company threatened legal action against companies to collect on bogus bills for toner cartridges and other office supplies that were never ordered or received.

A telephone listing for Direct Recovery Service could not be found.
