The Pact app was supposed to help users meet weekly goals for exercising and eating veggies.
But according to the Federal Trade Commission, it was the app maker that saw diet and exercise results—it feasted on users’ bank accounts and made a run for it when “tens of thousands” of them complained.
On Wednesday, the FTC announced that the maker of the app, Pact Inc., agreed to a $1.5 million judgement.
Nearly $1 million will go to users as refunds and unpaid rewards.
Pact has 30 days to fork over the dough.
Along with the settlement announcement, the FTC released its full complaint against Pact (PDF).
