BLUE ASH, OH (FOX19) -
Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine today
announced a lawsuit charging Cincinnati-based Queen City Script Care with
making unauthorized debits to consumers' bank accounts, failing to provide
refunds, and taking unfair advantage of consumers. Many victims are elderly and
"This business offered to help consumers obtain
discounted prescription medication, but instead it took advantage of them,"
Attorney General DeWine said. "Some consumers had to close their bank accounts
because the unauthorized debits would not stop. With the upcoming health care
changes, we will continue to watch for businesses that make misleading claims
about health care services."
Queen City Script Care's principal place of
business is on Reed Hartman Highway in Blue Ash, Ohio. The
business charges $30 to $41 per month to help individuals get free or
discounted prescriptions through patient assistance programs, which are run by
pharmaceutical companies to help eligible individuals who cannot afford their
medication. Individuals can apply to patient assistance programs for free, and
many nonprofits offer help for no charge.
According to the lawsuit, Queen City Script
Care promised full refunds for consumers who were unable to receive medication
through a patient assistant program, but many consumers never received any
medication and never received a full refund.
The business often debited
consumers' bank accounts multiple times per month or continued to make
withdrawals after consumers canceled their contracts.
The Ohio Attorney General's Office currently
has 20 unresolved complaints against the business with losses totaling
$7,141.18, but additional consumers have been affected.
In the lawsuit, the Attorney General charges
the business and its owners, Thomas Fenske and Theresa Fenske, with multiple
violations of Ohio's Consumer Sales Practices Act. The Attorney General seeks
consumer restitution, injunctive relief, civil penalties, and other costs.
Consumers who believe they have been treated
unfairly should file a complaint with the Ohio Attorney General's Office at www.OhioAttorneyGeneral.gov or 800-282-0515.
