Consumer Law Group, a company that promises consumers it can help get them out of debt, has been sued by North Carolina's attorney general, who wants to stop it from collecting money from customers and issue refunds instead.

In the suit, the attorney general alleges that the Boca Raton, Florida-based Consumer Law Group offered debt settlement schemes to more than 650 North Carolina consumers and charged them upfront fees, which is prohibited under state law.
