FTC returns money to victims of business directory scam
The FTC is mailing a second round of checks to businesses and nonprofit organizations that lost money to the Fair Guide business directory scheme, which tricked them into paying for online directory listings they didn’t want.
The first round of checks was mailed in March 2017. Because money still remains in the fund, the FTC is mailing an additional 738 checks totaling more than $117,000. Organizations that cash both checks will get nearly one third of their money back.
If you get a check, please cash or deposit it within 60 days.
If you have questions about the case, call the refund administrator at 877-657-8808.
