The Federal Trade Commission is mailing checks totaling more than $3.1 million to consumers who were victims of a student loan debt relief and credit repair scheme.
The FTC is mailing 20,988 checks—averaging $148 each—to victims of the scheme. The FTC never requires people to pay money or provide account information to cash a refund check. If recipients have questions about the refunds, they should contact the FTC’s refund administrator, JND Legal Administration, at 1-888-304-0184.
The FTC’s new interactive dashboards for refund data provide a breakdown of FTC refunds by state and by case. In 2019, FTC actions led to more than $232 million in refunds to consumers across the country.
