Global Client Solutions, Debt Care USA, and Nationwide Debt Settlement Group were all recently named as defendants in a Oregon class action suit. This now marks the yet another in a growing line of class action suits that name the chain of players as parties. This case names the front end marketer, back office processor and payment facilitator.
The allegation is that the defendants violated the Credit Repair Organizations Act and Oregon Unlawful Trade and Practices Act.
TINA WILLIS AND GARY WILLIS,
DEBT CARE, USA, INC.; NATIONWIDE DEBT SETTLEMENT GROUP, LLC; and GLOBAL CLIENT SOLUTIONS, LLC,
The complaint says:
Specifically, amongother things, those marketing materials stated:
“With each settlement the creditor will update the clients [sic] credit bureau to reflect a zero balance. Each time this is done it will help to eliminate debt off your credit report, and the amount ofdebt on your credit is 30% of what creates your credit score. Eliminating debt causes your FICO score to repair and rebuild itself. Remember, on-time/late payments are only 35% of what creates your credit!”
