Florida telemarketer pays full restitution to 277 Iowans

WATERLOO (KWWL)-- A Florida telemarketing operation called "Galaxy Member Benefits" is making full restitution to 227 Iowans, totaling $12,824, to resolve consumer fraud allegations made by the Attorney General's Consumer Protection Division. Galaxy also is paying $5,000 to the State.

"Galaxy called Iowans and used deception to entangle victims in unwanted, so-called memberships," Attorney General Tom Miller said.

Miller stated that his office is mailing the refund checks to the 227 Iowans this week. The checks should arrive in one to three days of being mailed.
