More Than $9.1 Million in Payments Being Sent To Customers Who Paid For And Defrauded By Deceptively Marketed “Amazing Wealth System” Workshop
Kehoe Law Firm, P.C. is making consumers aware that on August 11, 2020, the FTC announced that it is mailing checks and sending PayPal payments totaling more than $9.1 million to customers who paid for an “Amazing Wealth System” workshop.
According to the lawsuit brought by the FTC, the defendants, FBA Stores and related companies and individuals, falsely claimed their “Amazing Wealth System” would enable people to create a profitable online business selling products on Amazon. The defendants, however, had no affiliation with Amazon.com; buyers did not earn the advertised income; most consumers lost significant amounts of money; and many of the customers experienced problems with their Amazon stores, including losing their ability to sell on Amazon.com.
The FTC is sending checks to 13,348 customers with an average refund amount of $684.24. Those who receive checks should, according to the FTC, deposit or cash their checks within 60 days. People who paid for workshops from FBA Stores and related companies, but did not receive a refund, should contact the refund administrator, JND Legal Administration. The FTC never requires people to pay money or provide information to cash a refund check. Recipients who have questions about this refund program, according to the FTC, should contact the refund administrator, JND Legal Administration, at (888) 383-3027.
