Wisconsin residents to receive money from check company


MADISON, Wis. — More than 4,600 Wisconsin residents will be provided restitution for personal checks ordered from Direct Checks Unlimited Sales, Inc.

Attorney General Josh Kaul said the Wisconsinites were overcharged for their orders.

The restitution is the result of a lawsuit brought by attorneys in the Wisconsin Department of Justice’s Public Protection Unit, Kaul said.

A total of $185,177.39 in restitution was distributed to 4,627 Wisconsin consumers late last month. This works out to around $40 per person.
