Case Summary

The Federal Trade Commission took action to halt a scheme that allegedly deceived consumers with mailers supposedly directing them how to obtain federal COVID-19 stimulus benefits, which instead lured them to a used car sale.

The mailers sent by Traffic Jam Events, LLC and its owner, David J. Jeansonne II, were labeled 'IMPORTANT COVID-19 STIMULUS DOCUMENTS' and directed consumers to 'relief headquarters' to 'claim these stimulus incentives,' the FTC alleged in its lawsuit against the company and Jeansonne.
