DENVER (Legal Newsline) - Colorado Attorney General John Suthers announced a $590,000 judgment on Monday against an Orlando, Fla.-based debt management services company.
Enhanced Servicing Solutions allegedly engaged in unregistered debt management services for Colorado consumers.
The judgment, which includes $504,000 in fines and $90,363 in consumer restitution, follows a June complaint against the company and its president, Thomas Roland. This judgment does not resolve the allegations against Roland.
Enhanced Servicing Solutions allegedly provided "back end" debt management services for the Johnson Law Group, another Orlando-based company. Suthers recently filed a consumer protection lawsuit against Johnson Law Group.
Suthers alleges that Enhanced Servicing Solutions failed to register with the state of Colorado to comply with the Colorado Debt Management Services Act. According to the complaint, filed in Denver district court, the company allegedly ignored a December 17 letter from the state notifying it of Colorado's registration requirements and did not respond to a January 25 subpoena.
According to the judgment, Enhanced Servicing Solutions is enjoined from further violating the DMSA or the Colorado Consumer Protection Act and from collecting on or receiving payments related to past agreements that violate the DMSA and the CCPA.
In the state of Colorado, debt management companies are required to register with the state.
