CONSUMER CREDIT DIVISION ACTIVITY
On June 7, 2021, the Commissioner entered into a Consent Order with Seattle Service Bureau, Inc. d/b/a National Service Bureau (NMLS # 1133332) (“Seattle”), Bothell, Washington. The Consent Order was based on an investigation by the Consumer Credit Division. As a result of such investigation, the Commissioner alleged that since its license was surrendered in 2018, Seattle acted as a consumer collection agency in Connecticut without a consumer collection agency license, in violation of Section 36a-801(a) of the Connecticut General Statutes in effect at such time. As part of the Consent Order, Seattle paid $10,000 as a civil penalty and $800 for back licensing fees.
