JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (KMOV) – Missouri Attorney General Chris Koster filed a lawsuit against MoneyCo USA for multiple violations on Tuesday.
In addition, Koster filed lawsuits against two of the company’s St. Louis County franchises.
Koster claims that MoneyCo USA has allegedly violated laws in multiple ways including failing to distribute IRS tax refunds to its consumers.
In addition, the lawsuit claims the company failed to provide consumers a copy of their tax returns and other documentation, creating the false impression that consumers’ refunds would be deposited directly into the consumers’ own bank accounts, misrepresenting the total fees charged for preparing and filing their taxes and charging consumers fees and filing taxes without the consent of the consumer.
Koster is seeking full restitution for consumers who have already been victimized by the company.
