INDIANAPOLIS - Attorney General Todd Rokita has obtained a $1.3 million default judgment against a Munster debt collection agency that allegedly engaged in abusive and deceptive business practices.

The obtained judgment includes more than $300,000 in restitution for consumers, more than $1 million in civil penalties, and an order prohibiting the defendants from engaging in debt collection in or from the State of Indiana.
