TOPEKA – (February 8, 2016) – Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt today alerted Kansas consumers holding unused gift cards purchased from RadioShack can obtain refunds from the company, which filed for bankruptcy last year.
Under a court order filed in U.S. Bankruptcy Court, a trust will treat as a priority claim and pay 100 percent of the balance to consumers holding gift cards that were purchased from RadioShack, the RadioShack website or any of its authorized sellers. 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.
Kansas consumers who wish to learn how to file for a refund of an unused Radio Shack gift card may visit the attorney general’s consumer protection website at www.InYourCornerKansas.org or call (800) 432-2310. The deadline for filing a claim is December 2, 2016.
