FTC SENDS REFUNDS TO LUMOSITY SUBSCRIBERS
The FTC is mailing 13,128 checks totaling over $1.9 million to people who subscribed to the Lumosity brain-training program. The FTC charged Lumos Labs—the company that marketed Lumosity—with making claims that were not supported by science, including claims that using Lumosity:
- improves performance in school, work, and athletics
- delays age-related mental decline and protects against dementia and Alzheimer’s disease
- helps those with ADHD, PTSD, Traumatic Brain Injury, and other health conditions.
Eligible Lumosity subscribers were notified by email. You were eligible for a refund if you signed up between Jan 1, 2009, and December 31, 2014, and spent at least $239 total on your subscription.
