Respondents who operate "FTC Credit Solutions" agree with the FTCA.
On the pretext that their firm had a link with the Commission, in particular to persuade Spanish-speaking customers to pay tens of millions of dollars in order to increase their creditworthiness, the respondents (First Time Credit Solution, Corp., Guillermo Leyes, Jimena Perez, Fermin Campos and Maria Bernal) pledged that they could eliminate bad information from a consumer's credit history and ensure good creditworthiness.
It claimed that the respondents infringed the Federal Trade Commission Act and the Credit Repair Organizations Act by billing customers in advance for credit repair service, usually $2,000. Leyes explained in a commercial that FTC Credit Solutions was licenced by the Commission and added that the licence enabled the firm to ensure a credit rating of 700 or more to any user within 120 workingdays or less.
The undercover phone conversations of the Consumer Claims Bureau uncovered Bernal's testimony that the firm "operates under the Federal Trade Commission, a bill passed by the President in 2010," and that the firm could "cancel" and "the investigator" a reprieve for $19,000 in debts.
The four separate respondents will have to make a combined payment of $2.4 million to resolve the charge. Furthermore, all respondents are indefinitely forbidden to resell or advertise credit repair facilities to any consumer, to resell or otherwise use customer information and to deceive any consumer about any goods or facilities they resell.
