The FTC and the Colorado Attorney General filed their complaint (mentioned below) in Court on May 26, 2011. As of this time, there has been no final Court decision, and refunds are not currently available from this government lawsuit. A company named RMI Associates has been claiming it can help people get refunds from Dalbey, but first the company wants a fee of several hundred dollars. The FTC believes that this company is attempting to defraud you. Neither the FTC nor the Colorado Attorney General is working with any company. Two courts have orders against RMI Associates. Under these orders, RMI is not allowed to claim that it is working with the FTC or that it has a track record of having obtained refunds for consumers. RMI is also not allowed to ask for or accept payment to assist consumers in seeking money from the Dalbey companies' estate and in filing a claim in bankruptcy court. For more information on these orders, please see the following press release issued by the Colorado Attorney General and the Court's order in the Dalbey companies' bankruptcy matter.
