Recently, a former military member who was struggling to make payments
on a few Federal Credit Union Visa credit cards reached out to The World
Law Group for financial help. Representatives from the group told him
they would negotiate a settlement and provide a 3-year payment plan to
help him recover from his debt. Thinking he was receiving help, he began
submitting $400.07 per month to cover payments for debts and attorney fees.
Two years later, the man received a notice from the Navy Federal stating
the credit union was suing him for lack of communication and failure to
provide a payment plan. As a result, the man testified in a bankruptcy
court case against a company contracted with World Law, Orion Processing.
World Law refused to answer any questions regarding the services they promised
to provide. The former military member found a new attorney who helped
him set up a payment plan with a credit union. Eventually, he signed a
settlement with World Law and refused to comment on the story any further.
Following this occurrence, federal and state officials said this man is
one of thousands of debt-ridden individuals who were wronged by World
Law and Orion Processing.
Others Affected by Wrongful Acts Committed by the Two Organizations
The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau filed a lawsuit against World
Law and Orion Processing, stating the two organizations collected more
than $67 million in illegal fees from nearly 21,000 debt-ridden consumers
throughout the United States. Four other states filed similar complaints,
which helped push Orion Processing into the federal bankruptcy court.
On August 20, 2015, a bankruptcy judge from Austin, Texas found the 2 organizations
guilty of collecting illegal upfront fees and false promises for legal
representation. The judge forced Orion Processing to liquidate immediately.
