LEXINGTON, N.C. -- Victims of the Zeek Rewards scheme may be getting some good news.
According to court documents filed this week, victims should be receiving interim checks in early 2014.
Zeek Rewards was based out of an office in Lexington and came across as an online marketing business and auction site where people could try and make money. It was shutdown by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission in August 2012.
Charlotte attorney Ken Bell, who is in charge of collecting Zeek assets for potential claimants, said he hopes to file a motion in November to get at least part of the $320 million back to those who lost.
It is believed that almost 840,000 people lost money through the scheme.
