The CFPB goes after another debt settlement services company (and lawyers too)

As the Blog of the Legal Times explains:

Continuing its crackdown on companies that provide debt settlement
services, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau today announced that a
payment processing company will pay $1.376 million to settle
allegations that it collected illegal up-front fees from consumers. The CFPB said Tacoma, Wash.-based Meracord LLC helped debt-relief
service providers including lawyers wrongly take millions in fees from
more than 11,000 consumers who enrolled in payment programs to reduce or
eliminate their debts.
