FTC Sends Refunds to consumers affected by Office Supply Scam
The FTC is mailing a second round of checks to non-profit organizations, churches, schools, small businesses, and volunteers that were tricked into buying office supply products at higher prices or in larger quantities than they had agreed to.
According to the FTC, Liberty Supply, an office supply scheme, misrepresented prices and quantities, and then demanded payment, requiring consumers to pay hefty shipping and restocking fees to return the unwanted or overpriced products.
The first round of checks was mailed in November 2018. Because money still remains in the fund, the FTC is mailing an additional 861 checks totaling more than $47,000.
If you get a check, please cash it within 60 days.
