If You Did ‘Green Coffee Bean Diet’ You May Be Owed Money

Green Coffee Bean Diet Plans were pretty popular a few years ago, but the FTC says most of their weight loss claims were bogus. Now the agency has some $9 million dollars in refunds for consumers who basically just lost weight in their wallets by signing up for the product. Average refund: $47.93.

FTC Sending Refund Checks Totaling More Than $9 Million to Consumers 

The Federal Trade Commission is mailing 191,748 refund checks totaling $9,190,842.68 to consumers who bought Pure Health or Genesis Today green coffee bean extract weight-loss supplements. Consumers who purchased the products online will receive a full refund, with the average check totaling $47.93.

Consumers who bought the supplements in a retail store such as Walmart did not receive a check in this mailing. These consumers can file a claim form with the FTC, and may be eligible for a partial refund.

Analytics, the redress administrator for this matter, will begin mailing refund checks to online purchasers today. The checks must be cashed within 60 days or they will become void. Recipients should note that the FTC never requires consumers to pay money or provide information before redress checks can be cashed.

If you have questions, please call 1-844-449-3586.
