Legal Educators USA & Company

December 9, 2013

The Washington State Department of Financial Institutions (DFI) has received a complaint from a consumer in Washington State against an entity by the name ofconsumer alert Legal Educators USA & Company (Legal Educators). This entity appears to be either providing, or holding itself out to the public as able to provide, loan modification services without being properly licensed, and charging advanced fees in violation of state and federal law.

DFI has no record of Legal Educators being licensed. This entity is also not registered with the Washington State Secretary of State or the Department of Revenue.

Verify Licenses

DFI strongly recommends that consumers deal only with those lenders that are properly licensed to conduct business. Consumers can determine whether lenders are properly licensed using the “Verify a License” feature on DFI’s website at www.dfi.wa.gov/consumers/findcompany.htm.

Report Fraud

Washington State residents, if you are suspicious of unlicensed activity by a payday lender please contact the Washington State Department of Financial Institutions at 1-877-RING-DFI (746-4334), or online at www.dfi.wa.gov.

If you live in another state, find your state regulator.
