AG warns of consumer scam

Attorney General John Suthers is warning consumers to be award of companies offering to assist them in recovering restitution from the state’s consumer protection lawsuits in exchange for an up front fee.

Suthers is responding to complaints from consumers concerning RMI Associates. The Denver-based RMI Associates offered to help people get money associated with the AG and the Federal Trade Commission’s recent lawsuit against the Dalbey Education Institute, a company suspected of using informercials to deceive consumers into believing they could break into the promissory note business and get rich.

RMI is not affiliated with the AG’s office or the FTC. Consumers can file a complaint against Dalbey for free at www.coloradattorneygeneral.gov/complaint or by calling 800-222-4444.
