I Had an Account With CPC and Omni Management Partners But Getting Sued

Question:

Dear Steve,

I used to have an account with CPC, and it was switched over in 2015 to Omni Management Partners. I just received a summons, and I called the Plaintiff on the summons, and they told me there was no information they could give me and that it had to be done through the Attorney representing me.

They said it is Omni Management Partners, but I cannot find any information on who to contact to discuss this matter.

What is the contact name and number of who to discuss this matter?

Lindsey

Answer:

Dear Lindsey,

In 2018 the Federal Trade Commission announced a settlement by saying “Debt Relief Scammers Settle with FTC and Florida; Will Submit $35 Million in Assets for Consumer Redress.”

I think there is a strong chance the Omni Management Partners you hired has gone poof since they were named in that FTC action. If there is a company still deducting money from your bank account for these services, contact them and see if they have any contact information.

Otherwise, you should contact a consumer attorney that is licensed to practice law in your state and ask for legal advice.

The FTC had added Omni Management Partners to the suit in 2017 after you were a client. “The FTC’s complaint against Marcus, Smith and Segrea, filed in May 2017, also named 11 corporate defendants and 12 relief defendants that profited from the scheme. In August 2017, the FTC filed an amended complaint adding Viking Management Services LLC, Cockburn & Associate LLC, Omni Management Partners, HP Media Inc., White Light Media LLC and Discount Marketing USA S.A. as corporate defendants, and Jack Marcus, Teresa Duda and James Marcus as relief defendants.”

In 2021 the State of Florida announced, “More than 1,200 Floridians will be receiving a second round of checks totaling nearly $340,000 in the coming weeks due to judgments the Florida Attorney General’s Office and the Federal Trade Commission obtained in an action against a massive debt relief scam. Attorney General Ashley Moody and the FTC sued 17 corporate defendants and three individuals alleging the defendants engaged in a massive debt relief scheme offering consumers phony debt relief services, including fake loans. In the first round of consumer redress made in July 2020, 1,260 Floridians received checks totaling more than $720,000.”

Attorney General Ashley Moody said, “These deceptive companies preyed on people who were trying to pay off their debt, making their financial situation worse. I am glad we were able to work with the FTC to shut down this scam and recover more than a million dollars for Floridians.”

The entities named in that action were Financial Freedom National, Institute for Financial Freedom, Marine Career Institute Sea Frontiers, 321 Loans, Instahelp America, Helping America Group, United Financial Support, Breeze Financial Solutions, 321Financial Education, Credit Health Plan, Credit Specialists of America, American Advocacy Alliance and Associated Administrative Services, Credit Maximizing Program, US Legal Club, Active Debt Solutions, Guardian Legal Center, Guardian LG, Guardian Legal Group, American Credit Security, American Credit Shield, Paralegal Support Group, Paralegal Staff Support, Associated Administrative Services, Jobfax, Discount Marketing USA, Viking Management Services, Cockburn & Associate LLC, Omni Management Partners, HP Media, and White Light Media.

  1. I also had an account I’m not getting sued I just can’t get the bank to go back seven years to get copies of bank statements. Showing I paid them every month for almost three years for help with our student loans. I am so mad every time I think about it I fell like I can pass out. I don’t know what to do I paid them my hard earned money I can’t believe this is happening I don’t know what to do to get my money back.
