CUOMO SECURES REFUNDS FOR MEMBERS OF NOW-DEFUNCT LA WEIGHT LOSS CENTERS

Attorney General Andrew M. Cuomo today announced that his office has secured $275,000 from LA Weight Loss Centers, Inc. in order to provide refunds to thousands of customers across the state who paid for but never received services after the now defunct company closed its doors in January 2008.

Statewide thus far, the Attorney General’s Office has identified more than 100 consumers who were affected by the closures and will receive restitution as part of the agreement. “As more companies fall victim to the harsh economy, they still have an obligation to abide by the law and be forthright with their patrons,” said Attorney General Cuomo. “Many New Yorkers who paid for and never received services from LA Weight Loss now have some vindication, and my office will continue to seek recourse for consumers who are defrauded across the state.”
