Early Days of the Dispute
Early in 2019, DRB Capital announced that they had filed a complaint against Rightway Funding in Palm Beach County, Florida. They alleged that Rightway Funding was conducting unfair and unethical practices while they were trying to gain a competitive advantage.
DRB took the time to create a bounty program in the summer of 2018, called “Stop Structured Settlement Fraud” with a tip line that paid out awards up to $100,000 to those that came forward with information that proved violations of the business buying the structured settlement payment rights.
With this hotline, they received a few different tips about abusive and deceptive activities. They used these tips to move forward with their allegations and DRB also paid out some awards to those that called in.
Reaching a Resolution
Finally, after over a year of litigation DRB Capital, and Rightway Funding reached an agreement. They chose to join forces to fight against those companies that engage in deceptive practices instead of battling each other.
The CEO of DRB Capital, Jim Terlizzi said that they were happy to settle their dispute and work together to fight practices that harm consumers. The Managing Director of Rightway Funding said that their company was dedicated to having high standards, and they were looking forward to building their relationship with DRB Capital.
