FTC sends out refunds for work-at-home scam victims
The Federal Trade Commission is mailing out some refund checks.
It's reimbursing more than $2 million to consumers allegedly charged hidden fees in connection to a bogus work-at-home product.
The FTC says "Google Money Tree" also doing business as “Google Pro,” or “Google Treasure Chest” is accused of deceptively using the name and logo of the internet search company Google Inc. and falsely promising people they could earn $100,000 in just six months.
Consumers who made purchases from “Google Money Tree” will receive about $24.50. Checks will be mailed on September 11, 2012, and must be cashed on or before November 12, 2012.
Consumers who have questions, or who have not yet filed a complaint with the FTC and wish to do so, should call (877) 226-2847.
