What I found unique about this is, they duped the ITSPs
slash carriers:

According to documents filed in this case and statements made in court: Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) services transmit telephone calls over high-speed Internet 
connections rather than over traditional land-based telephone lines. They do not usually travel directly from a caller to a recipient's computer, but rather through 
computers belonging to several layers of intermediary VoIP service providers, or wholesalers. VoIP wholesalers charge different rates, typically by the minute, to 
transmit VoIP calls.

...

The companies were shell companies with no operations, the sole purpose of which was to induce companies that sold VoIP services-including AT&T, Cordial Communications, 
Digerati Networks, France Telecom, Iristel, Keywest Communications, Maxcom Telecomunicaciones, Pipeline Telecom, Primus Communications, Surfcreek Communications, and 
Verizon-into providing those services to Tonangi and his co-conspirators on credit.
