Two men, who ran companies involved in a premium-rate phone line scam, have each been ordered to pay £15,000 costs.
Joseph Boll, (26), of Sion Hill, Clifton, Bristol, and Mark Hunter, (41), of Hartley Wintney, Hampshire, were involved in two Bristol-based companies running the operation.
Callers to the phone line were told they had a chance of winning a TVR sports car, but ended up being offered a second-hand reconditioned computer if they bought a 12-month warranty for £116.33.
Boll and Hunter, who ran the companies Cutting Edge Telecom Limited and Pokie Limited, pleaded guilty to offences under the Trade Descriptions Act at an earlier hearing.
Boll, director of both companies, admitted 23 counts of making a false statement as to services and 17 counts of giving a misleading price indication.
Hunter admitted one count of making a false statement as to services and 17 counts of giving misleading price indication.
Cutting Edge admitted 20 counts of making false statements as to services and 17 counts of giving misleading price indication.
Pokie, which has gone into liquidation, admitted a false statement as to services and two counts of giving a misleading price indication.
Judge John Foley Deferred sentencing for six months at Bristol Crown Court.
Both men were ordered to pay £15,000 costs each with sentencing deferred until November 10 this year.
