Checking out your AMG check?

Share this page

We told you last month about the $505 million in checks going back to 1.1 million people who got an online payday loan from a company affiliated with AMG Services. And we’ve heard from many of you that you got your check and cashed it. We’ve just heard, though, that scammers are trying to get into the act, using fake checks that look like the real one. So far, we’ve heard that scammers have given job applicants a check that looks like an AMG refund check, and then asked people to deposit the check and use the money to go buy supplies for the supposed employer.

Here’s what you need to know if you get a check from the FTC’s settlement with AMG:

  • If you get a refund from the FTC, just deposit or cash the check within 60 days. You don’t have to pay for an FTC refund, and you don’t have to give any information to cash a refund check.
  • If you have questions about your AMG refund check, go to the FTC’s AMG refunds page, or call the refunds administrator at 1-866-730-8174.
  • Legit employers will never pay you by telling you to deposit a check and wire money back to them – or buy stuff for them. Anyone who does is scamming you.

When do I get this money?

Why is it the Fed Trade Commissionisnt capable of just taking info from complainants reports, which usually provide sufficient contact information, and begin tracking perpetrators of scams and seek to identify those involved and make apprehesions of wrongdoers more timely? It just seems that we report susplcious activities and sometimes nothing g is done, or worst still, years go by without any intervention from feds. It is very disheartening.

I did get my refund of 178.69! I wasn't even looking for a refund but so glad I got it!

I received 2 checks, what bank are you all using to return our refunds?

I received one check for over 200$. Should I expect another check?

The letter you got from the FTC said your check is a partial refund. It says that because the amount of your check is less than the total amount you paid to AMG Services, Inc. when it illegally charged you undisclosed and inflated fees. The FTC has sent out all the money that is available.

Hi, I received a partial check, this mean I will received an other check?

Where can you cash your check? I went to HEB and they couldnt cash it because the system denied it.

Received a check for $488.78 check and I went in person to US Bank in Albuquerque, NM. I learned that my check is fake and she proceeded to read me the riot act if I cashed it. Thanks FTC!!! She also told me that numerous people had the same check and warned of trying to cash it.

If you got a fake check, it's from a scammer.

Please call the company the FTC hired to manage the refund process. That is Rust Consulting, at 1-866-730-8147.

Hello I contacted the FTC and they told me I had a check that had been sent out I hadn't received one yet. The gentleman informed me that I needed to write a letter to the company stating my correct address. How long will it take?

To get information about a check, please call the company that the FTC hired to manage the refund process at 1-866-730-8147.
