MCA Company Files Suit Against Debt Settlement Company
Plaintiffs Pearl Gamma Funding, LLC and Pearl Beta Funding, LLC (Pearl) aren’t happy with what a debt settlement firm is allegedly telling their customers, according to a complaint filed in the New York County Supreme Court in November.
“Creditors Relief LLC researches customers who have entered into Merchant Agreements with Pearl, solicits them throughout the country, and advises them to breach their contracts with Pearl,” plaintiffs allege. They also cite an example in which an employee of defendant allegedly told a customer “that Pearl was engaging in illegal activity and its Merchant Agreements were unenforceable.”
Pearl’s causes of action against the defendant include tortious interference with contract, defamation and permanent injunction.
Creditors Relief, based in Englewood Cliffs, NJ, denied the allegations in their response but has asked the court to declare Pearl’s contracts with its customers unenforceable nonetheless.
Due to the nature of pending litigation, neither party was asked to comment.Last modified: January 16, 2017
