FTC Refunds Small Businesses Charged for Unordered Merchandise
The FTC is mailing a second round of checks to small businesses and other organizations that paid money to an office supply operation that used names such as Midway Industries and Standard Industries. The FTC charged that Midway Industries and related defendants tricked companies and non-profits into paying for light bulbs and cleaning supplies they never ordered.
The first round of checks mailed in August 2019. Because there is still money in the fund, the FTC is mailing 17,624 additional checks totaling nearly $3 million to organizations that cashed their first check.
If you get a check, please cash it within 90 days.
