FTC sends checks to small businesses and other organizations
The FTC is mailing a second round of checks to small businesses, non-profits, and government agencies targeted by Telestar Consulting, which also did business as Kleritec and United Business Supply. According to the FTC, the company charged organizations for products they did not order. When recipients challenged the invoices or did not pay promptly, the company threatened to send them to “collections.”
The first round of checks mailed in March 2020. Because there is still money in the fund, the FTC is mailing 9,526 additional checks totaling nearly $1.2 million to organizations that cashed their first check.
If you get a check, please cash it within 60 days.
