Can Accelerated Collection Service Sue Me or Garnish My Wages?

It is illegal for a debt collector to make empty threats to sue you or garnish your wages. Like most debt collection agencies, Accelerated Collection Service would likely choose not to sue you for a debt you may not owe or they cannot verify. This does not mean, however, that is uncommon for debt collection agencies to summon debtors to court and garnish wages after a default judgement. In order to avoid finding yourself in this situation, contact an attorney preemptively to ensure the safety of your assets and rights. Lemberg Law has helped thousands of consumers fight back against these cases of fraudulent collection practices. Call us today to find out how we can help you resolve this issue.

Absolutely. You can sue a debt collector. Here is a sample complaint:

The complainant had never before received a bill from Accelerated Collection Service. It was after the complainant became aware that this charge was on their credit card and had not been fully paid that they called Accelerated Collection Service to clear up the discrepancy. When asked whether there was a settlement option, Accelerated Collection Service declined and the complainant agreed to pay the “$918.00” which was owed. The collections company then informed the complainant that the fee had now risen to “$1,134.00”. The company claimed that this additional fee was was interest, “because the medical center is a non for profit”. The complainant then proceeded to pay the “$918.00” and the payment was received on 7/22/2020. After this exchange the complainant asked for, “a receipt to be sent via email and postal” and never received one. A month later, the charge was still fully reported on the complainant’s credit card and when the complainant chose to dispute it, the company told the bureau instead that the amount was accurately reported, even after the complainant had the fee paid for over a month.
