According to the Sun Sentinel out of Florida, the Florida AG is investigating a Florida debt relief company, Horizon Financial. According to state allegations the company was engaged in making solicitation calls that mislead and deceived consumers into thinking they were dealing with a U.S. Treasure Department foreclosure assistance program, when they were not.
Horizon Financial CEO Sean Batcheler offered this clarifying statement.
Horizon CEO Sean Batcheler said the Attorney General has asked to meet with company officials about how they were servicing clients but did not give any more details. Batcheler said Horizon never made spoofing calls under the fund’s name or number, and has not done mortgage loan modification work for more than a year.
“We are strictly debt settlement now. And there are quite a few unscrupulous people in that business,” he said. – Source
