NATIONAL SCHOLARSHIP
FOUNDATION, INC.; et al.,
Defendants.

Case No. 97-8836-CIV-FERGUSON

Magistrate Judge Snow

STIPULATED FINAL ORDER FOR PERMANENT INJUNCTION AND SETTLEMENT OF CLAIMS FOR MONETARY RELIEF

Plaintiff, the Federal Trade Commission ("Commission"), commenced this action by filing its complaint against defendants National Scholarship Foundation, Inc. ("NSF"), D.B.F. National Business Reporting Bureau, Inc. ("NBRB"), Eleanor Morse, Calvin Morse, Dorothy Beam, Sandra K. Brown, James P. McKenna, and Timothy Quinn (collectively, the "Defendants"). The complaint alleges that Defendants engaged in unfair or deceptive acts or practices in violation of Section 5 of the Federal Trade Commission Act ("FTC Act"), 15 U.S.C. 45, and seeks a permanent injunction and monetary relief pursuant to Section 13(b) of the FTC Act. The Commission and Defendants hereby stipulate to the entry of this Final Order for Permanent Injunction and Settlement of Claims for Monetary Relief ("Order"). Defendants’ stipulation is for settlement purposes only and does not constitute an admission of facts, other than jurisdictional facts, or of violations of law as alleged in the Complaint. Being advised of the premises, the Court finds:

  1. This is an action by the Commission instituted under Sections 5 and 13(b) of the Federal Trade Commission Act, 15 U.S.C. 45 and 53(b). The complaint seeks both permanent injunctive relief and consumer redress for alleged unfair or deceptive acts or practices by Defendants in connection with the operation of a scholarship service and a business information reporting service.
  2. The Commission has the authority under Section 13(b) of the FTC Act to seek the relief it has requested.
  3. This Court has jurisdiction over the subject matter of this case and has jurisdiction over Defendants. Venue in the Southern District of Florida is proper, and the complaint states a claim upon which relief may be granted against the defendants under Sections 5 and 13(b) of the FTC Act.
  4. The activities of Defendants are in or affecting commerce, as defined in 15 U.S.C. 44.
  5. Defendants waive all rights to seek judicial review or otherwise challenge or contest the validity of this Order. Defendants also waive any claim that they may have held under the Equal Access to Justice Act, 28 U.S.C. 2412, as amended by Pub. L. 104-121, 110 Stat. 847, 863-64 (1996), concerning the prosecution of this action to the date of this Order. Each party shall bear its own costs and attorney’s fees.
  6. This action and the relief awarded herein are in addition to, and not in lieu of, other remedies as may be provided by law, including both civil and criminal remedies, except that this Order resolves all matters of dispute between the Commission and Defendants arising from (1) the Complaint in this action and (2) all telemarketed credit services activities of Credit Management Services Group, Inc. (a.k.a. Kimberly Credit Alliance, Inc. and Kimberly Credit Counseling, Inc.) and C&S Credit Services, Inc., up to the date this Order is entered.
