FTC Sends Checks to Herbalife Multi-Level Marketing Program Participants
The amount of most checks range from $100 to $500, although some exceed $9,000. They are being sent to people who ran an Herbalife business in the U.S. between 2009 and 2015, and who paid at least $1,000 to Herbalife but got little or nothing back from the company.
The FTC noted 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.
Herbalife will also restructure its multi-level marketing program as part of the settlement.
More information about the refunds can be found here.
FTC tips for what to look for when joining a multi-level marketing company can be found in its article "Money back for 350,000 Herbalife distributors".
