If the debt settlement company contracts for or receives fees exceeding the limits provided for under Washington law, the contract is void and the debt settlement company must return to the consumer all fees paid (RCW 18.28.090). The company, further, has committed a business crime (RCW 18.28.190) as well as committed an unfair and deceptive business practice.  RCW 18.28.185).  A consumer, therefore, is entitled to recovery of attorney fees, litigation costs, and potentially punitive damages of up to three-times the fees they paid.
