I’m trying to get more information about the FBI task force that is investigating aggressive debt settlement companies in California and Florida and I’ve requested an interview with the FBI on this issue.
All I know for now is that the FBI does have active investigations of some debt settlement companies and is looking into the economic crimes of those debt settlement companies that have collected upfront fees but never delivered meaningful services.
I’ll keep you posted.
Update: Here is a reference I found to part of this effort in California. Click here.
