FTC Returns Money to Vacation Prize Scheme Victims
The FTC is mailing a second round of checks in the VGC Corporation of America case. According to the FTC, the defendants tricked people into paying “taxes and fees” in order to receive a vacation package as a prize, and then never delivered the promised vacation. Under settlements with the FTC and the State of Florida, the defendants were banned from selling vacation packages and required to pay money for restitution.
The first round of checks was mailed in July 2017. Because money still remains in the fund, the FTC is mailing an additional 23,768 checks totaling over $292,000. This mailing brings the total amount refunded to people in this matter to more than $515,000.
If you receive a check, please cash it within 60 days.
