The Federal Trade Commission is returning more than $1.9 million to consumers who lost money to Green Millionaire, an online scam whose "free" book explained how to power cars and homes at no cost, and then billed them for an online magazine they never ordered.

More than 58,000 refund checks are going to consumers, about 54% of consumers’ total estimated loss.

Each person will receive an average amount of about $33.88, based upon the amount of individual loss divided pro-rata.  Those who receive the checks from the FTC’s refund administrator should cash them within 60 days of the mailing date.
