Nationwide Credit Services has agreed to stop making false claims and charging up-front fees under a settlement with the Federal Trade Commission.

The settlement is part of "Operation Clean Sweep," an ongoing crackdown on scams targeting financially strapped consumers. Most involve taking hundreds of dollars in fees to purportedly remove negative information from consumers' credit reports.
