Did you lose money to AdvoCare? Starting May 5, 2022: Check your mail or PayPal account about a refund

If you lost money to AdvoCare — a multi-level marketer of energy drinks, shakes, and supplements that allegedly swindled people out of money through a pyramid scheme — we have good news. Thanks to the FTC’s lawsuit, starting May 5, 2022, more than 224,000 people who lost money to the AdvoCare pyramid scheme will be getting checks or PayPal payments.

If you get a check or PayPal payment from FTC v. AdvoCare, cash or accept it quickly. Refund checks will expire on August 3, 2022 (90 days after being sent.) PayPal payments will expire on June 4, 2022 (30 days after being sent).

Got questions about your refund? Call the refund administrator, Analytics, at 855-744-1802.

And remember, the FTC never requires you to pay money or give account information to cash a refund check. Anyone who contacts you, says they’ll help you file for a refund or get your money back — if you pay them first — is a scammer. Report it to

The published number to call is not being answered. Is there a place to see if you are due a refund?
