Press Release

WASHINGTON, DC – Congresswoman Carolyn B. Maloney (NY-12), lead sponsor of the  James Zadroga 9/11 Health and Compensation Reauthorization Act, released the following statement today following the announcement that the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau and New York Attorney General filed suit to hold parties accountable for allegedly scamming 9/11 heroes out of money.

“It is beyond abhorrent that RD Legal Funding, LLC would target 9/11 heroes to scam them out of funds intended to help relieve financial hardship by covering medical expenses and replacing lost income related to their heroic acts during the worst terror attack on American soil. This lawsuit will hopefully not only end this alleged illegal and immoral scheme, but also recover these funds for those who need and deserve them. The joint work by the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau and the New York Attorney General is the type of oversight we need to keep companies accountable to their clients and the American public.”
