“They got me.”
If you’ve ever been taken in by a bogus product or service, that may be the first thing you think just as you get that sinking feeling in your stomach.
Fortunately, the FTC’s mission is to get them – the scammers and cheats – and to return the money they made back to you.
When the FTC sues a company that made deceptive claims about its products or services, we strive to get people refunds as part of the resolution of the case. The amount depends on how much the defendants are able to pay, how much the court orders for refunds, and how many people apply for a refund.
Learn more about the FTC’s redress process, how to resolve consumer problems, and get the latest information about the FTC’s recent cases resulting in refunds. And please file a complaint with the FTC if you’ve been taken in by a scam or misled by dishonest product or service claims.
