St. Louis – Missouri Attorney General Jay Nixon is suing a St. Louis County credit company for allegedly misleading consumers into believing bad credit could be repaired.

The suit filed Monday names NuStar Enterprises and its owner, Kevin McDaniel. NuStar also operated under the name New Start Credit Solutions. There is no telephone listing under either name.

Nixon says NuStar told consumers it could remove negative information and guaranteed that if it wasn't removed from their credit reports within a year, they would receive a 150 percent refund of their contract.

Nixon says at least 29 people paid from $175 to $600 in advance for services that were not performed.
