Consumers who bought the Ab Force belt advertised on TV as an effective alternative to regular exercise will be getting their money back from the makers of the device, after the Federal Trade Commission found the marketers made false and deceptive claims that the gimmick caused weight loss and rock-hard abs.

The refunds, valued at approximately $17.89 each, or 90% of the purchase price for the ab belts, went out to 34,130 consumers this week, the FTC said. This is the second round of refunds the company, Telebrands Corporation, has been forced to issue, after it sent more than 50,000 checks last year to other consumers who bought the devices.
