MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WTVA) -- Alabama officials say nearly 250 Alabama consumers will receive refunds after a storm shelter company sold inadequate tornado shelters.
Attorney General Luther Strange says the payments were approved by a Madison County Judge this week.
He says Tornado Masters and owners, Les and Grady Holt, sold defective, dangerous, and inadequate storm shelters and falsely represented to customers that they met government safety standards.
Following an investigation, a judge shut down the company earlier this year and ordered the assets liquidated.
Strange says the sale of cars, trucks, tools, and other assets brought in nearly $80,000.
He says consumers affected can expect to receive about $300.
Strange says some will receive up to $1,000, and one daycare will receive $3,019.
