SPRINGFIELD, Mo. (KY3) - Don’t toss this postcard. You could get some cash.

It’s not a scam.

The lawsuit is: Federal Trade Commission verse On Point Global.

The postcard reads, “Court records show that you entered personal information online to check eligibility for government assistance programs like Section 8 housing assistance or food stamps.”

The website you visited wasn’t a government site and didn’t deliver what it promised. There was a lawsuit. FTC sued the company, claiming it created around two hundred deceptive, fake government assistance websites, including the DMV or post office, for a change of address.

There’s a 17 million judgment. File a claim to get your piece of the pie.

No word on how much you’ll get. It depends on the number of claims. While you might get a lot of junk mail, take a second glance at postcards that reference court cases.

Submit your claim by October 18.
