Debt Collectors Ordered to Pay $4 Million Settlement Due to Illegal Collection Tactics
On May 23, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) and the New York Attorney General’s Office filed a Stipulated Judgment for $4 million against a group of debt collectors who engaged in illegal collection tactics against consumers. The Complaint alleged the collectors violated the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act by threatening consumers with arrest and imprisonment if they failed to pay their debts, artificially inflating balances, and harassing debtors, their friends and families.
Under the stipulation, the collectors are permanently banned from debt collection operations and must pay $2 million to the CFPB victim relief fund and $2 million to the State of New York. In addition, the stipulation provides a $1 million penalty if the collectors fail to pay the damages.
If you are the victim of harassing or abusive debt collection calls, you should contact a Las Vegas Debt Collection Lawyer as soon as possible to discuss your legal rights.

I was financially unstable, because my store got robbed; I went bankrupt. I tried getting my business back in shape through business loans; but all my applications were declined due to my poor credit score. I was looking for help online; then I came across positive reviews of 760Plus Credit Score on different credit forums. I looked them up and discovered they were highly rated, so I contacted them. I was amazed when I pulled my report after 11days: All my negative collections were cleared and my credit score changed from 590s to 780s. Thanks to you guys and I really appreciate it.

My credit score had been low for a very long time due to some negative items. About a month ago I hired 760Plus Credit Score to help me fix my credit. Their service is top notch; 11 Hard inquiries, 8 collections, 2 charge offs and an eviction deleted so far . My Equifax report went from 681 to 754 in 30 days, I have zero negative accounts now. I have been giving guidelines to keep my credit on the right track. I'm recommending their service as promised. You can reach out to them via firstname.lastname@example.org
