It’s Confirmed. FBI Looking Into Debt Settlement Companies

I just got off the phone with Special Agent Dupre from the FBI who confirmed that as part of their economic crimes push the FBI is looking for cases involving consumers that have been defrauded by debt settlement companies and other economic crimes.

Special Agent Dupre told me they are looking for “violations that rise to the level of opening cases.” He said that the FBI would probably pursue cases under bank fraud and wire fraud statutes.

Consumers who feel they have been defrauded by a loan modification company or debt settlement company should contact their local FBI office.
