ATTORNEY GENERAL WARNS CONSUMERS TO BEWARE OF PRIVATE FIRMS
OFFERING TO ASSIST IN RECOVERING RESTITUTION
DENVER — Colorado Attorney General John Suthers warned consumers to beware of companies
offering to assist them in recovering restitution from the state’s consumer protection lawsuits in exchange
for an upfront fee. The Office of the Attorney General learned of this scam after consumers inquired
about the validity of RMI Associates and its Web site, www.recovermyinvestment.com.
Denver-based RMI Associates offered to help consumers recover their restitution associated with the
Office of the Attorney General and the Federal Trade Commission’s recent lawsuit against the Dalbey
Education Institute, a company suspected of using infomercials to deceive consumers into believing they
could break into the promissory note business and get rich.
RMI Associates is in no way affiliated with the Office of the Attorney General or the Federal Trade
Commission. Consumers can visit the Office of the Attorney General’s Web site and file a complaint for
free via www.coloradoattorneygeneral.gov/complaint. Consumer also can file complaints via 1-800-222-
4444 or email@example.com.
Consumers should not contract with or pay any fees to private companies in order to get their complaint
submitted to state or federal authorities.
