is the check a scam

Date: 10/1/2018 5:33 PM (PST)

My husband received a check from FTC v. Services Refund Administrator 6180 P. O. Box - 63 in Minneapolis MN. They said it is a partial refund for illegal finance fees that was charged for a payday loan. Have you ever heard of this company. Is the check good or is his another scam?

Hi Patty. Thank you for contacting Business Consumer Alliance (“BCA”). I researched your question and found that on September 27, 2018 the FTC and DOJ returned $505 million to consumers harmed by a massive payday lending scheme. Refund checks were mailed to people deceived by the payday lending scheme operated by AMG Services, Inc. and Scott Tucker for violating the FTC Act and the Truth in Lending Act.

Patty, you can read more about the FTC Action here: https://www.ftc.gov/news-events/press-releases/2018/09/ftc-doj-return-record-505-million-consumers-harmed-massive-payday

Refund checks began to get mailed out on September 27, 2018. Please note that the FTC never requires consumers to pay or provide information to cash refund checks. To verify the validity of the check, consumers should call 1-866-730-8147.

Please contact me directly at vantillon@checkbca.org if I can be of further assistance.
