Investors swindled in a DVD rental machine scam will be refunded more than $3 million by the Federal Trade Commission, which has been pursuing its case against the defendants behind the scheme for several years.

The FTC's law enforcement action against American Entertainment Distributors, Inc., was filed in 2005 and named 10 defendants. The U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida has entered final orders against nine of them, assessing fines to refund their victims.
