DFPI Fines Three Collection Operations $85k


Avoid Costly Fines

The California Department of Financial Protection and Innovation (DFPI) has fined three debt collection agencies, Allen and Associates, BlackRock Legal Group, and RM Legal, a total of $85,000 for operating without a license and using false or misleading representations while collecting debts in California. The companies have been ordered to cease and desist from engaging in such unlawful activities. These enforcement actions are based on four specific interactions with Californian consumers, highlighting the agencies' use of false claims, threatening language, and ambiguous settlement agreements.
