Ban on advance fees for debt settlement services starts today

The Federal Trade Commission's ruling that bans advance fees for debt settlement firms (requiring them to actually perform services before taking consumers' money) goes into effect today. It's a big win for consumers, but more needs to be done. MCRC will be working to cap fees to a reasonable level and to close the loopholes that firms immediately sought to employ.
