    Consumers will have until May 3, 2010 to return applications for restitution mailed them.

    Today is the last chance for former F&S Oil customers to apply for restitution.

    Almost 10,000 customers received letters saying they might be eligible for a share of about $1 million in restitution, which will compensate for oil and services they paid for but never received when the company abruptly closed its doors on 2008, according to Attorney General Richard Blumenthal.

    There is also a Web site that includes information on the restitution program, or consumers with questions can call the toll free information hotline, 1-800-961-2157.

    Consumers can also call Blumenthal’s office at (860) 808-5400.

    “The administrator will distribute checks as soon as possible to F&S customers literally left in the cold by the company’s sudden closure. Scarce assets were a huge hurdle in our tough fight for restitution, but this result assures some relief. My office will work closely with the claims administrator to assure that consumers receive compensation fairly, quickly and efficiently,” Blumenthal said.
