The Federal Trade Commission is mailing 2,031 checks totaling more than $436,000 to people who lost money to Money Now Funding, a work-at-home scheme that conned people, including many seniors with limited income and savings, into thinking they could make money by referring merchants in their area to a non-existent money-lending service.
People who lost money will get an average of $214.68. Recipients should deposit or cash checks within 60 days. The FTC never requires people to pay money or provide account information to cash refund checks.
If you have questions about the case, contact the FTC’s refund administrator, Rust Consulting, Inc., at 800-419-5336. To learn more about the FTC’s refund program, visit www.ftc.gov/refunds.
