WASHINGTON (Legal Newsline) — The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) has announced it will send refund checks to 5,970 consumers, providing a total of $4 million to people victimized by an alleged illegal robocall scheme.

The checks, mailed July 19, give full refund amounts and are the result of the FTC’s efforts to collect $2,255,209 from defendant Fereidoun “Fred” Khalilian and his company, The Dolce Group Worldwide LLC.

The FTC had charged the defendants with conning people into paying thousands of dollars by making them believe the company, My Car Solutions, was affiliated with auto dealers and offering them auto warranties. According to the FTC, the defendants had no relationship whatsoever with the auto dealers in question. A court order settling the charges banned the defendants from making misrepresentations via telemarketing and mandated a $4.2 million monetary judgment.

The FTC noted that refund checks must be cashed within 60 days of the mailing date or they become void.
