Texas attorney general charges four debt settlement companies with unlawful conduct — and a security breach
Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott is going after some debt-settlement companies for fraud. But the story reported by KTRE also includes charges concerning a security breach associated with one of the companies:
Four Peaks [Financial] is accused of exposing its customers’ sensitive personal information, including name and credit card numbers, on its Web site. The state’s enforcement action charges Four Peaks with violating the Texas Identity Theft Enforcement and Protection Act, which carries penalties that range between $2,000 and $50,000 per violation of the act.
