Credit Collections Defense Network
Recently, West Virginia Attorney General Darrell McGraw, won a victory for consumers against Credit Collections Defense Network (CCDN). The judgment was granted against CCDN, Robert Lock Jr. and Phillip Manger and bars them from doing business in the state. In addition to the permanent injunction, the court also imposed a $130,000 civil penalty against each defendant as well as $21,985 in restitution for West Virginia consumers who paid CCDN but received no meaningful service.
A quick google search for “CCDN” will tell consumers all they need to know to stay a mile away from these guys. The first page of google is littered with horror stories of past clients. In fact, someone actually created CCDNLaw.com which is a site devoted to the CCDN scam and comically, it actually outranks the CCDN main site when you search for the company.
Their main pitch is to just send them a few thousand dollars in upfront fees and they will be able to make your debt go away. It might be a plausible theory and may sound like a great solution, but many consumers have found out the hard way, that the only thing consistent about Credit Collections Defense Network is the upfront fees and certainly not the results.
