This website was established by the United States Department of Justice to provide information for persons who may have experienced unauthorized withdrawals from their bank account between March 2005 and February 2006, by a company called Integrated Check Technologies, Inc. (ICT).
From March 2005 through February 2006, telemarketing firms used misrepresentations and false promises of goods and services to elicit personal bank account information from victims. ICT withdrew funds from victims' accounts without authorization in exchange for monthly service fees paid by the telemarketing firms.
On February 2, 2010 and June 15, 2010, the United States District Court for the Western District of New York ordered forfeiture of $2,921,299.49 of United States currency as pursuant to Title 18, United States Code, Sections 981 (a) (1) (C) and 984. These forfeited funds will be distributed to eligible victims of the fraud through a process called “remission”. Authority to grant remission rests with the United States Department of Justice, pursuant to the Code of Federal Regulations, Chapter 28, Part 9 (2010).
