FTC returns $18 million from a business opportunity scheme
The FTC is mailing a second round of checks to people who lost money to The Tax Club and applied for a refund from the FTC. The FTC, the State of New York, and the State of Florida sued The Tax Club, Inc. for making false claims that their services would help home-based businesses succeed and promising services that were never delivered.
The first round of checks was mailed in December of 2016. Because there is still money in the fund, the FTC is mailing over 3,000 checks totaling more than $300,000 to people who lost money.
If you get a check, please cash or deposit it within 60 days. The FTC never requires people to pay money or provide account information to cash a refund check.
If you have questions, call the refund administrator at 855-863-7379.
