Advance Cash Services Lawsuit
The FTC filed a lawsuit against three advance cash services that were guilty of deceptive and abusive marketing practices. The suit states that the defendants deceived small businesses by demanding personal guarantees and upfront fees, providing less funding than promised, and debiting consumers’ bank accounts more than they agreed to pay. Although the company may have acted fairly in many cases, the FTC’s action may be a first step toward preventing similar practices.
The lawsuit aims to prevent the advanced cash services industry from misrepresenting its customers.
The FTC has filed a complaint against Richmond Companies, the parent company of Par Funding. The suit also names three other principals: Robert Giardina, Tzvi “Steve” Reich, and Michelle Gregg. The plaintiffs allege that the defendants knowingly abused customers’ financial information to obtain more money than they were supposed to. In addition to the FTC’s suit, the settlement demands that the defendants pay $675,000 to their former customers.
This type of lawsuit is a form of civil litigation involving advance cash services. The plaintiffs can sue the lender in any state for deceptive and unfair practices. However, if you don’t want to go to court, you can consult with a lawyer. The attorney can negotiate the terms of the loan with the defendant and get any pending lawsuits dismissed. Further, you can also seek to resolve the debt by negotiating with the advance cash services’ funder.
The lawsuit was filed in W.D. Missouri, Central Division.
It is a class-action lawsuit filed against the companies that provide merchant cash advances to small businesses. The company’s legal team is suing the lenders and claiming millions of dollars in damages. The lawsuit is backed by the Office of Attorney General, which is investigating the industry’s practices and implementing new legislation. This lawsuit may be useful for consumers in many circumstances.
The lawsuit is currently being investigated by the Office of Attorney General. The complaint was filed on November 22, 2008, against three different advance cash services companies. The suit has been settled by the company for $18 million. The suit is based on claims that the companies abused the consumers. The case was originally filed in 2009 but was later dismissed after the New York Attorney General concluded the settlement. In the meantime, the suit is being defended in two other state courts.
The lawsuit is being fought in the Philadelphia Common Pleas Court, citing the practices of Par Funding and Richmond Companies.
The suit also names four principals, including Robert Giardina and Tzvi “Steve” Reich. The defendants denied all of the allegations, and are defending themselves in the lawsuit. The company is being sued for deceptive practices relating to merchant cash advances. Despite the lawsuit, Par Funding is not doing much to change its practices, although they have testified before Congress on the subject of merchant cash loans.
The lawsuit names three New York City-based advance cash services companies. The lawsuit also names the owners and managers of the companies. The four individuals were responsible for the violations of the state’s consumer protection laws. The attorney’s general’s office is investigating the claims of thousands of consumers. Its goal is to prevent these firms from defrauding consumers and to protect the public from fraudulent and abusive practices. The complaint also seeks to limit the number of merchant cash advances.
As of May 23, the FTC filed a lawsuit against Advance America over the misuse of customers’ financial information.
The FTC claimed that the defendants used false statements and representations to obtain customer information. The settlement ordered them to cease the practice of merchant cash advances and debt collection and to pay the FTC $675,000 in damages. The case is also expected to settle. The ruling will result in the permanent ban of the defendants from the debt collection and merchant cash advance industries.
The lawsuit against Advance America was filed on September 22, 2008, in the Central Division of the W.D. Missouri. The case has settled for $18 million in total. The defendants were sued for preventing customers from receiving their payments on time. This practice is illegal, and the settlement is likely to be contested in court. The suit cites violations of state consumer protection laws and a lack of competition in the industry. In addition to denying consumers the right to timely payment, advance cash services have to pay back these consumers.
