Own Skechers? The Check May Be In The Mail.


By Eric Weisfeld

(WOLO) Columbia, SC- If you purchased skechers booty-firming shape-ups, a check may be in the mail for you. The Federal Trade Commission is mailing more than a -half million checks to consumers who bought the so-called toning shoes.
The company agreed to pay a 40-million-dollar settlement after it was accused of deceiving consumers with false promises, saying the shoes would help people lose weight and strengthen muscles.
skechers recruited celebrities like Kim Kardashian to promote the shoes.

More likely than not a check WILL NOT be in the mail....let's put this in perspective...oh, I forgot, that's WIS's slogan....silly me; however to state that a check MAY be in the mail is just as SILLY. Must have been a slow news day for this contributor for abccolumbia.com...I won't use the word journalist.
