BOSTON — The Federal Trade Commission has just announced it will be sending refund checks to more than 540,000 Office Depot customers who were tricked into buying computer repair products.
Office Depot suspended its PC Health Checks throughout its chain, pending a review, following a Boston 25 News investigation with its sister station in Seattle back in 2016.
25 Investigates had three brand new computers go through the PC Health Check at Office Max, which is the same company as Office Depot. In two locations, technicians said our laptops showed signs of poor performance and recommended a fix between $149-$199. One location found no problems with the computer.
