A company that Georgia Attorney General Chris Carr says represented that it offered and provided “credit restoration” services to consumers, but ended up leaving many Georgians with increased debts, impaired credit scores, and, in some instances, exposed creditors to lawsuits and bankruptcy, has agreed to a consent judgment.

The agreement requires Burlington Financial Group to permanently cease doing business in the State of Georgia and to pay $150,000 in civil penalties to the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB), $15,000 of which will go to the State of Georgia. Those consumers affected will receive restitution through the CFPB’s Consumer Restitution Fund.
