Partial Refunds Possible For Offer

From Staff And Wire Reports

Attorney General Alan Lance says a lot of Idaho residents responded to nationwide advertising claiming they could make up to $600 a week and $1 each for stuffing envelopes.

But they had to pay a $39 “advance fee” and Lance says many got nothing in return, even though the Massachusetts-based company promised a money-back guarantee.

Lance on Tuesday said Idahoans who responded to the ads from Lifetime Nutrition Co. Inc. may be eligible for partial refunds.

Under terms of a lawsuit filed by the Massachusetts attorney general, Lifetime Nutrition agreed to pay more than $100,000 in reimbursement. Lance said more than 27,000 consumers from all states responded to the offer.

Consumers who responded to Lifetime Nutrition’s offer should get a letter from the attorney general’s office soon with details.
