The Federal Trade Commission is mailing 561 checks totaling more than $148,000 to people who lost money to Payday Support Center, a debt relief scheme that targeted people with outstanding payday loans. The defendants are banned from promoting or selling debt relief services under a federal court order.
People who lost money will get back an average of $264. 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.
People who have questions about the case can contact the refund administrator, Rust Consulting, Inc., at 888-279-4212.
