Anthony Coppola is now banned from debt collection activities after participating in illegal methods of debt collection against consumers.  The settlement with the Federal Trade Commission states that, "Coppola is banned from debt collection activities or otherwise trading in consumer information regarding debt."  Coppola and his co-defendants collected on debts using previously banned methods such as sending deceiving messages, creating false charges, contacting third-parties for collection, and failing to identify as debt collectors.
