Consumer Alert: Deadline approaching for RadioShack gift card refunds
TOPEKA – Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt is reminding Kansas consumers the deadline for filing for a refund for unused RadioShack gift cards is quickly approaching. Consumers have until Dec. 2, 2016, to file a claim for a refund of unused gift card balances under the terms of a U.S. Bankruptcy Court order. Gift cards that were purchased from RadioShack, the RadioShack website, or any of its authorized sellers will be refunded at 100 percent of the balance. Cards acquired in any other way will not be treated as a priority claim, meaning those claimants may not receive payment.
Schmidt cautioned consumers that no one associated with this settlement would contact them to ask for personal or financial information, or to request any payment. Consumers who are asked for such information or payments should be wary of potential scams and refuse those requests.
More information on how to file a claim is available on the attorney general’s consumer protection website at www.InYourCornerKansas.org or by calling 800-432-2310.
