Lawsuit Against Debt Settlement Company for Violating FCRA Resolved

We recently wrapped up a lawsuit against a debt settlement company for being in violation of the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA). Like many of these types of lawsuits, the case was settled for a confidential amount. The case involved a conspiracy between multiple companies to impermissibly access our client’s credit report in order to market debt settlement services to him.

Consumer law attorney Jeremiah Heck alleged that the defendants, the companies, had committed violations of state and federal law, and that such violations were an egregious breach of our client’s privacy. This case also dealt with the deceptive nature of certain types of marketing. We alleged that the defendants created a mailer that appeared to be from a governmental organization, which made material misrepresentations about the debt settlement companies’ ability to settle our client’s accounts.

We attended more than five court dates on our client’s behalf, and it involved law firms in three different states and a multitude of defendants. It took over two years to achieve favorable results for our client.
