State Sues Columbus Firm Alleging Consumer Protection Law Violations

Sep 5, 2017

The state has filed a consumer protection lawsuit against a Columbus-based company for failing to deliver promised financial services. 

The lawsuit accuses Erika Taylor Consulting, Minority Credit & Finance Commission, Erika Taylor, and Kurtis Turner of failing to deliver services or refunds, promising consumers they would receive money if they paid for a background check and consulting fee, and other crimes. Consumers told the state they were were promised up to 25 thousand dollars as a gift for participating in a financial program and collectively paid nearly 95 hundred in fees but never received the services or money.  The lawsuit seeks restitution for consumers.
