Google money tree seized by FTC
San Francisco, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/27/2012 -- The Federal Trade Commission is returning over two million dollars to people who were involved with a work from home website that deceptively used Google’s name. The FTC has been paying people over 2.3 million dollars in checks after being charged hidden fees by a work-at-home company that operated under the name Google Money Tree, Google Pro, and Google Treasure Chest.
The website promised its consumer could earn over $100,000 in six months after signing up to receive a work-from-home kit with a shipping fee of under four dollars.
In reality, this operation and the company itself had no relation to Google itself, the FTC points out.
The FTC has taken the company behind the website to court in 2009 and won the case. Part of the settlement required the company to give up all money and assets to the FTC, which is helping the FTC to pay these refunds to customers who were involved with the website and bought these kits.
