FTC Sends Refund Checks to Consumers of Deceptive Joint Pain Supplement Synovia
On December 1, 2020, the FTC announced it is mailing 13,221 checks totaling nearly $775,000 to consumers who bought Synovia, a supplement intended to treat joint pain and arthritis. The product was marketed with misleading claims and phony testimonials, such as a fake quote from a customer who said he "gave away his walker" after using it. The refunds are being distributed as part of an December, 2019 settlement with A.S. Research, LLC.
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. Each check amount is $58.60.
