FTC Sends Refunds in Office Supply Scam
The Federal Trade Commission is mailing 1,251 checks totaling more than $647,000 to non-profit organizations, churches, schools, small businesses, and volunteers that were tricked into buying office supply products at higher prices or in larger quantities than they had agreed to.
According to the FTC, Liberty Supply, an office supply scheme, misrepresented prices and quantities, and then demanded payment, requiring consumers to pay hefty shipping and restocking fees to return the unwanted or overpriced products.
If you get a check, please cash it within 60 days.
