About 1,600 victims of an insurance scam have a few days left to get their money back.

August 31st is the deadline for people who bought policies from American Trade Association or its affiliates to request a refund.

The state insurance commissioner’s office says the companies sold bogus health insurance plans nationwide.

They include American Trade Association, Smart Data Solutions, and Serve American Assurance.

In May, the companies were ordered to shut down.
