Texas AG sues bankrupt debt settlement company

Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott is looking to recover $4.6 million for Texans who were scammed by a bankrupt debt settlement company.

His office took legal action to get back the money owed by Debt Relief USA of Addison to more than 2,500 financially distressed customers.

Investigators say Debt Relief USA targeted people with thousands of dollars in unsecured debt and promised customers it would make them debt free in 36 months.
