Attorney General Aaron Frey on Friday sent out an email blast bragging about what he described as the “Distribution of $141 Million Settlement to Millions of Low-Income Americans Deceived by TurboTax Owner Intuit.”
“This was a classic bait and switch that harmed Maine consumers – promises of free services lured Mainers in, but the company knew that the services consumers needed actually cost money,” Frey said in the email.
Despite the eye popping number in the subject line of Frey’s email, the number of Maine consumers who will benefit from the settlement is unknown.
What we do know, though, is those affected can expect to receive a whopping $29-$30.

Frey remains under investigation for failing to disclose an eight-month-long relationship with a married subordinate in the Attorney General’s Office.
