BobDear Friends,

Last month was a good month in the fight against scammers, especially here in Washington.
More than 100 rogue debt collectors, including several in our state, were targets of the largest-ever national law enforcement crackdown on illegal debt collection operations.
Two other companies were held accountable for cheating tens of thousands of students nationwide when I teamed up with my fellow attorneys general to stop their scams.
And, two health care sector companies will have to pay hundreds of millions in reimbursements to federal and state programs for illegal “kickback” schemes that endangered patients nationwide. 
In other news, we concluded our review of the allegations against Planned Parenthood here in Washington and found no evidence to support the unfounded claims against the health care provider.
We also continued our commitment to protecting the environment, joining a national coalition to defend the Environmental Protection Agency’s new power plant carbon pollution rules.

Thank you for following the work of the Attorney General’s Office.
