Why would ConsumerAffairs(dot)com., a company that bills itself as a consumer advocacy organization continue to bill a now defunct company, accused of exploiting Baltimore's black lead paint victims with structured settlements AND subject to an investigation by the Maryland Attorney General as one of the top 10 structured settlement companies? According to its website "ConsumerAffairs is a consumer news and advocacy organization founded in 1998 by James R. Hood, a veteran Washington, D.C. journalist and public affairs executive". I guess James R. Hood doesn't read his hometown newspaper, The Washington Post, eh Terry McCoy?
My concern for consumers over the utility of the ConsumerAffairs website for structured settlement research is that it failed to remove Access Funding from the Top 10 when a front page news story appeared in the Washington Post as well as numerous other publications in the Washington Post and Baltimore Sun. This was all over the news.
