FTC Sends Refund Checks to People Harmed by Abusive Debt Collector
The FTC is sending checks to 603 people who paid money they did not owe to a debt collector that used deceptive and abusive collection methods.
The FTC and State of New York sued Campbell Capital and related defendants, alleging that the defendants called people and threatened to have them arrested or served with legal papers at work if they did not make payments immediately. In some cases, according to the lawsuit, the defendants pretended to be sheriff’s office employees or process servers when making these threats. They also often collected more money than was owed, according to the lawsuit.
If you get a check, please cash it within 90 days.
