Back in June, Jill Duggar and Derick Dillard announced that they would be leaving the US to perform missionary work in El Salvador.

The couple collected donations from fans and gave the impression they would be living in Central America for the foreseeable future.

Just a few weeks after they embarked, however, Jill and Derick were back in Arkansas, seemingly for good.

It was later revealed that the Dillards were rejected as missionaries due to their lack of qualifications.

It seems the main problem was that the couple never even attempted to complete the Bible study and other religious-themed education courses that were required of them.

Naturally, fans who had made donations were upset to learn that they had essentially helped to fund a three-week vacation for Jill and Derick.

Many to took to social media to complain of being swindled by the Dillards.

Now, Radar Online is reporting that in an effort to avoid another scandal, Jill and Derick have offered refunds to the fans who donated to their bogus missionary journey.

Sources say the fans have been contacted privately by reps for the Duggars. They were reportedly then given the option of having the money returned to them or passed on as a charitable donation.

We’re hoping most were smart enough to ask for a check. Knowing these two, the "charity" that would receive their donation might very well be the New Pool Table For the Dillards’ Basement Fund.
