Description

The Federal Trade Commission is mailing checks to nearly 350,000 people who lost money running Herbalife businesses. The checks are the result of a July 2016 settlement with the FTC that required Herbalife to pay $200 million and fundamentally restructure its business. This represents one of the largest redress distributions the agency has made in any consumer protection action to date.

The settlement will put money back in the pockets of many people who lost money to Herbalife. The FTC used Herbalife’s records to determine who would receive a refund and the amount of each check. Generally, the FTC is providing partial refunds to people who ran an Herbalife business in the United States between 2009 and 2015, and who paid at least $1,000 to Herbalife but got little or nothing back from the company. Most checks are between $100 and $500; the largest checks exceed $9,000.

Join the Federal Trade Commission and New America Media in a national telephonic conference with ethnic media on Thursday, January 12, from 2:00 pm to 3:00 pm EST. This teleconference is part of the FTC’s ongoing work with New America Media to reach and encourage reporting on consumer protection issues in the ethnic media.
