How do I apply for restitution?
If you believe you have a valid restitution claim and you want to participate in the settlement, you must file a completed complaint form with the Attorney General’s Office. The complaint form must provide a detailed description of the consumer’s claim and, if available, include documentation that supports the claim.
How much restitution can I get?
You are entitled to receive restitution in the amount you paid to NCOF. You cannot recover restitution for other damages, accrued interest, punitive damages, emotional distress, lost wages, attorney’s fees, or costs.
What happens after I file my complaint?
The Attorney General will review your complaint form to verify your eligibility. Assuming you are eligible, we will forward your complaint form and supporting documents to NCOF. You will receive a copy of our cover letter to NCOF so you know when your complaint was sent to NCOF.
When will I receive my money?
It takes time for the Attorney General to process, review, and mail your complaint form to NCOF. Likewise, it takes NCOF time to process and review your complaint, prepare your check, and mail it to you.
Please be patient. If you have not received your check within 90 days of the date you sent your complaint to our office, call the Consumer Protection Division at 208-334-2424.
