Washington, DC - The Federal Trade Commission is mailing refund checks totaling $42,580.45 to 1,274 consumers who bought a worthless fuel additive called EnviroTabs. Its marketer, Green Foot Global LLC, touted it as the “World’s 1st Multi-Vitamin for Your Engine!” and falsely claimed it would increase fuel efficiency, reduce emissions, and save consumers money.
Consumers are receiving full refunds. Each affected consumer will receive on average $33.42. 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, Rust Consulting Inc., at 1-855-720-6804, or visit www.ftc.gov/redress for more general information.
