The AFCC was formed in April 2011 by a group of industry-leading companies to advance the goal of an industry in full compliance with the regulatory initiatives of the Federal Trade Commission. The AFCC founders realized that the former trade association, The Association of Settlement Companies (TASC), did not fully represent the wave of change that has swept through the industry, and that the American public deserved a clearer, more forward-looking approach to consumer credit advocacy. TASC no longer exists. We are now the American Fair Credit Council (AFCC). We have a new vision and a new mission that focuses on the people we serve. Here are a few more ways in which we are different: Consumers: Our primary focus is on the consumers we help. Their story - the suffering of good people drowning in credit card debt, in need of an advocate - has not been told well and is often misunderstood. Fairness: We fight for fair treatment for our customers by their creditors, and we provide fair services to the customers we serve. We only accept fees after we have successfully resolved a debt. Advocacy: We are a champion for consumers, sometimes the only one they have. We are aggressive advocate - for the industry, our members and our clients. Compliance: AFCC is ONLY for those willing to abide by the AFCC's new Code of Conduct that emphasizes full compliance with the federal and state rules regulating what we do. There is now a bright line between good actors - and bad. Visit Website
