FTC Returns Money to Victims of Business Opportunity Scheme
The FTC is mailing 2,711 checks totaling more than $372,000 to people who paid money for a business opportunity that promised them substantial income for providing payment processing services, credit card terminals, and merchant cash advances to small businesses.
Under a settlement with the FTC, the defendants—which include American Business Builders, ENF, Network Market Solutions, UMS Group, United Merchant Services, Universal Marketing and Training, and Unlimited Training Services—are banned from selling business and work-at-home opportunities and related services.
If you get a check, please cash or deposit it within 60 days. If you have questions about the case, contact the FTC’s refund administrator at 800-373-9651.
