Scam Victims Face Lawsuit

February 22nd, 2008 by flanews

Credit scammers are in a fix much like the clients who seek their service. The Attorney General’s office has filed a lawsuit against scammers who prey on consumers with bad credit. Scammers offering to erase or consolidate debt, or hide bad credit by giving consumers a new identity number face federal charges. Now victims of the scams face lawsuits. They could owe the companies who they were indebted to before the scammers promised to erase the debt .

“If something sounds too good to be true it probably is. If someone’s telling you oh we can wipe out all your debt just pay us a fee up front” that should be a red flag,” said Victoria Langley Heller a Spokesperson for Attorney General’s Office.

The Attorney General’s office urges that consumers consult with their lenders first and to also take advantage of the free yearly credit report available online at annualcreditreport.com.
