Two women who ignored a lawsuit filed against them by the Arkansas attorney general’s office have not responded to a federal judge’s order that they pay nearly $700,000 in penalties for defrauding at least 139 Arkansans through a credit-repair scam.
Meanwhile, the two women, Sherrye Mance and Tiffany Morris, are believed to have simply changed the name of their operation to “Fresh Start Credit Service” and are, well, starting fresh. The attorney general’s office says it is now receiving complaints about them and Fresh Start from California residents.
According to the lawsuit, the women had been defrauding consumers in Arkansas and some surrounding states for about four years, using unincorporated business names such as Financial Services Unlimited, Service Unlimited Inc., and Credit Counseling Service.
