AG FROSH SECURES SETTLEMENT WITH DEBT SETTLEMENT COMPANIES THAT CHARGED CONSUMERS THOUSANDS WITHOUT PROVIDING SERVICES
Baltimore, MD (March 16, 2017) - Maryland Attorney General Brian E. Frosh announced today that his
Consumer Protection Division entered into a settlement with five California law firms and their owner,
Mandip Purewal, to resolve allegations that the companies collected illegal advance fees from consumers for debt settlement services, and then failed to reduce consumers' debts. The Division alleged that, prior to doing anything to help consumers, National Consumer Law Group, P.C., U.S. Legal Services Group, P.C., Imperial Law Group, P.C., Apex Legal Group, P.C., and Regis Law Group, P.C. used consumers' payments to pay themselves thousands of dollars of fees. The Division alleged that while NCLG did settle some consumers' debts, the more common experience was that most debts were not settled even though the firm charged consumers in full for its services. In addition to failing to provide the promised services, the Division alleged that the firms told consumers that attorneys would be involved in settling their debts, when that was not the case.
