Oct 2010 the FTC passed a law prohibiting up front fees paid to debt settlement companies. Guardian Client Services in Irvine Ca. has been scamming clients into paying a $995.00 fee upon enrollment for what they call a “benefits package” which none other than a coupon book to places like McDonalds and fast food establishments. Guardian claims the $995.00 is paid to a third party and refuses any type of refund as the money paid was not to them. Here is a link to prove that the owner of Guardian is in fact the owner of “Pro-financial Education” the company paid for this $995.00 coupon book.
