Robocall credit card reduction scheme refunds
The Federal Trade Commission has announced it is mailing 1,244 checks to consumers who bought deceptively marketed credit card interest rate reduction services after being contacted via illegal robocalls. Affected consumers will receive full refunds, with most receiving $1,100 or more, within the next week. Using illegal robocalls to bait consumers, the operators of the Treasure Your Success (TYS) robocall scheme promised to lower people’s credit card interest rates and to save them thousands of dollars, in exchange for an upfront fee. After collecting the fee, they failed to provide the promised interest rate reductions or the savings. They also unlawfully called numbers listed on the national Do Not Call Registry and failed to identify who was responsible for placing the calls.
