Operators of debt collection scheme banned
The Federal Trade Commission has announced that, under the terms of a settlement agreement with the Commission, the operators of a scheme that conned consumers into paying non-existent debts will be permanently banned from the debt collection business and from misleading consumers about debt. A complaint filed by the FTC against Global Asset Financial Services Group, LLC alleges that the operators of the company falsely claimed to be attorneys or affiliated with attorneys to pressure consumers into making payments on debts they did not owe, and threatened to take legal action against consumers if they did not pay. In addition to being banned from debt collection, debt brokering activities, and misleading consumers, the defendants also will be banned from misrepresenting to consumers whether they are attorneys.
