Refunds Now Being Sent To Victims Of Express Consolidation Debt Management Services

Four years after the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) filed a case against Randall Leshlin and his debt management services company, Express Consolidation, the FTC is mailing out refund checks to almost 3,000 consumers across the country that fell victim to worthless debt management services.

The reimbursement stems from a February 2009 contempt finding against Florida attorney Randall L. Leshin, and his debt management services company, Express Consolidation, Inc. In its contempt ruling, the court found that the defendants violated a 2008 final order by continuing to do business in states where they were unqualified, and by collecting fees from consumers who had cancelled their debt management plans.

Consumers who were victims of the prohibited conduct will receive a total of $90,000 in refunds, with the average amount being $31.16.

The 2008 order resulted from a case the FTC filed in 2007 against Leshin and his company. The complaint alleged that the defendants misrepresented their non-profit status, charged hidden fees, and misled consumers about the benefits of enrolling in a debt management plan. Under the 2008 order, the defendants were prohibited from the illegal conduct and from operating in states where they were not qualified to do business.

The checks, which are being mailed by a redress administrator, are valid for 60 days from the date they are issued, and the FTC urges consumers to cash them. Consumers with questions should contact the FTC’s redress administrator, Rust Consulting, Inc. at 1-866-458-3187, or visit FTC.gov/refunds. The FTC never requires the payment of money up front, or the provision of additional information, before consumers cash redress checks issued to them – Source.
