FTC sends refunds to small businesses who lost money to invoicing scam
The FTC is sending full refunds to small businesses and other organizations that were tricked into paying for Internet directory listings, search engine optimization services, and website design and hosting services they never ordered. The defendants used several different company names, including Premium Business Pages, Ameteck Group, The Local Business Pages, and Data Net Technologies. When these companies called, they claimed to be collecting a past due invoice, but in reality, no services had been ordered.
The FTC is sending refunds to businesses and other organizations who previously filed a complaint with law enforcement.
