Consumers entitled to refunds

As a result of a consent decree between Cash Free Grants Inc. and the United States of America, a refund program has been established for consumers.

Cash Free Grants Inc., located in East Windsor, N.J., engaged in mail order promotions. The promotions stated that for $39 or $49, Cash Free Grants Inc. would match a consumer's financial need with a foundation that gave grants to consumers.

The defendant's ads stated "they knew where the money was" and could advise the consumer of the various foundations "most likely to provide you with the money you need." As a result of a court order, a fund has been established to provide consumers with refunds.

The Better Business Bureau of Metropolitan New York is administrating the refund program. Any Alaskan wishing to apply for a refund should send a letter, (no phone calls) with their name, current address, proof of purchase and the amount of purchase to: The Better Business Bureau Serving Metropolitan New York, Attention; Department CFG, PO Box 767, New York, NY 10010-0767.
