Washington, DC - The Federal Trade Commission is mailing 58,234 refund checks to consumers who lost money to Green Millionaire, an online scam whose “free” book explained how to power cars and homes at no cost, and then billed them for an online magazine they never ordered.
More than $1.9 million is being returned to consumers, about 54 percent of consumers’ total estimated loss. Each person will receive an average amount of about $33.88, based upon the amount of individual loss divided pro-rata. Those who receive the checks from the FTC’s refund administrator should cash them within 60 days of the mailing date. The FTC never requires consumers to pay money or to provide information before refund checks can be cashed. Those with questions should call the refund administrator, Epiq Systems, Inc., at 1-877-866-6385, or visit www.FTC.gov/refunds for more general information.
