Attorney General Pam Bondi News Release
“Florida law protects consumers from outrageous interest rates that leave borrowers continually paying interest without making progress in paying off their debt,” stated Attorney General Pam Bondi. “This lawsuit is intended to protect Florida’s borrowers from these illegal interest rates."
“The OFR will continue to work tirelessly with our partners, including the Attorney General’s Office, to hold those accountable who seek to illegally separate Floridians from their hard earned dollars,” OFR Commissioner Drew J. Breakspear said. “We are committed to protecting the citizens of Florida through smart, efficient and effective regulation of the financial services industry.”
The Consumer Protection Financial Bureau filed a similar lawsuit against the companies and its owner last week for violations of the Dodd-Frank Act. Floridians who would like to file a complaint with our office can do so by visiting MyFloridaLegal.com or by calling 1-866-9-NO-SCAM.
