Latest News:  FTC Sends Refund Checks to Consumers of Unproven Weight-Loss Products
(Date Posted: 3/16/2018)

On March 15, 2018, the FTC announced it is mailing 18,301 checks totaling more than $437,000 to consumers who purchased weight-loss products from Colby Fox, Christopher Reinhold, and their companies, Tachht, Inc. and Teqqi, LLC. The refunds are being distributed as part of a settlement of charges that the company made deceptive claims about the products.

The defendents were charged in June of 2016 with paying to send emails from hacked accounts to consumers, advertising unproven weight-loss products with fake celebrity endorsements and false claims. The products include Original Pure Forskolin and Original White Kidney Bean.

The FTC noted that consumers should receive their refund checks this month, and that recipients should deposit or cash checks within 60 days. It also reminded consumers that the FTC never requires people to pay money or provide account information to cash refund checks.
