Customers of the bankrupt Pennsylvania company Pure Weight Loss Inc. are cashing $500,000 worth of repayment checks thanks to a consent decree negotiated by state prosecutors. Attorney General Tom Corbett said Tuesday that the money has been sent to more than 2,300 customers around the country.

Corbett says the money is for products or services the customers paid for but didn't receive.

The average check is for $212. Eligible customers should be getting them over the next week.

Horsham-based Pure Weight Loss, formerly known as L.A. Weight Loss Centers Inc., shut down in January 2008 and filed for bankruptcy. The bankruptcy case is continuing.
