Federal judge reverses injunction against credit repair services direct seller, Financial Education Services Inc.
By: Stephanie Ramirez
There is a counter story. There is a narrative on the other side, so [the judge] balanced those sorts of things saying, wait a second, this isn’t all bad. There’s obviously good out there. And if there’s good, then it’s got to be worth at least an opportunity to salvage.

On May 23, the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) took swift action against a Michigan-based direct selling company that offers credit repair services, when it issued a motion to shut it down and freeze all assets. Just over a month after the closure, a judge has reversed this order allowing the company to continue operating under the observation of a monitor.
Financial Education Services Inc. (FES), also doing business as United Wealth Services among others, offers services including: credit restoration, wills, living trusts, smart credit, travel, LifeLock, Debt Zero, credit builder, financial literacy, youth financial literacy, and power of attorney, according to a company LinkedIn page.
