FTC Mails Refund Checks to Consumers Who Purchased Weight Loss Pills

As part of a $500,000 settlement over "outrageous" weight-loss claims made by a supplement company called the "Freedom Center Against Obesity," the FTC is mailing 11,585 refund checks this week to consumers who purchased the company's Double Shot diet pills.

The FTC affirmed that these are legitimate checks and must be cashed before April 21, 2015, when they will expire.

Consumers are also reminded that the FTC never requires individuals to pay money or provide information before redress checks can be cashed.
