Can AffGlo Sue Me or Garnish My Wages?

It is illegal for a debt collector to make empty threats to sue you or garnish your wages. It is also unlikely AffGlo would sue you for a debt you may not owe or they cannot validate. However, debt collection agencies are known to have summoned debtors to court and garnish wages after a default judgement. Contacting an attorney BEFORE this could possibly happen would be a smart move. We’ve helped thousands of consumers fight back against unscrupulous debt collection harassers.

Can you help me file a No Fee Lawsuit against Affinity Global?

Absolutely.  You can sue a debt collector. Here are some past cases filed in Federal Court

In 2016, a judge in U.S. District Court, Eastern District of New York, granted the Customer’s motion for summary judgment for specific issues in Halberstam vs. Global Credit and Collection Corp.. The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act in this class action case was “if a debt collector, whose phone call to a debtor is answered by a third party, may leave his name and number for the debtor to return the telephone, without disclosing that he’s a debt collector, or if the debt collector must refrain from leaving callback advice and try the call at a later time.” The judge ruled that the debt collector shouldn’t leave callback info. Since the Global Credit and Collection Corp. debt collector had done so, the judge granted summary judgment on this matter.

The Fair Debt Collections Practices Act (FDCPA) regulates the behavior of collection agencies by prohibiting actions such as the use of abusive or threatening language; harassment; or the use of false or misleading information to collect a debt. The FCRA regulates how collection agencies and creditors report delinquent debts to credit reporting agencies. Additional consumer protection laws include the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA) and the Consumer Financial Protection Act (CFPA).

    Collection agency also known as Affinity Global, I personally blocked them, probably had previous numbers user bail on a debt or are trying to scam you

  • Cyndie

    They asked for my banking information by email I said no, so everyday from an area code 905. Which I have blocked or they call from a toll free service. Yes I fell behind on payments but I corrected that with whom I owe… and the email looked unprofessional . Even another company we came to an agreement a lawyer contacted me and they are fine with $100.00 a month. I refuse to give out any banking information.

  • Kevin

  • Toots

    They have called me five times in three days. I spoke to two different Samantha’s who are threatening to put a lien on my home. They also told me that I HAD to go to my bank to pay them. I am on disability and cannot pay them anything. But the interest keeps racking up.

  • Cheryl

    Itb harrasing and illegal

  • Jeff E

    I signed up for a gym that claims to not have contracts and you can cancel at anytime. High impact exercise ended up being too rough on my injured back so I cancelled. They never told me they’ll keep billing me for a few months. I hardly used my CIBC bank account at this point so I didn’t immediately realize and racked up some NSF fees. The bank put what I owed on a line of credit and gave me a month to pay. After about two weeks they sent my account to collections. I don’t think I should be paying this but I figured it’s not much and if it’ll get them to stop calling me I’ll pay. They gave me an account number but they don’t pop up when I search for them in the bill payment section on my online banking. How can they be a legit debt collector and not show up in the bill payment..

  • Henry

    I’ve received 11 calls in a week… multiple calls to another number that I’ve never had but are a friend. They have told me multiple amounts I “owe”, in one day they called 3 different times and told me 3 different amounts each time… how do I know what I actually “owe” when they won’t email or mail me any correspondences. I am wondering if it’s a scam. Can I just pay the original company instead of them? I left the company almost 4 years ago and thought everything was paid and closed. Started getting calls 2 weeks ago saying I “owed” money to the previous company.

  • Lisa

    I received a letter today at my Mother’s address too stating I owe almost $2k to Rogers Wireless. And they’re threatening to take me to court and that they will seize and liquidate all of my real and personal property and assets if I don’t start making payments. What can I do? I have no income, assets and just clothes as personal property,

  • Vinny L

    They keep calling about a phone company that I’ve never gotten a phone with, and proceed to not listen when I tell them that I had all my ID’s stolen.
    I also got a letter in the mail, and I’ve asked them before to not call again.
    It’s from 2016 and first phone I got was from another place.

  • Tia S

    These people are disgusting. Doesn’t matter what you say or if your mom just died and you have no money they will mock you and say you are making “excuses” for not paying. These people are so messed up. They literally laugh at you and pretty much belittle you, then have the guts to call you again the very next day going off even more.

    I got a calm saying i owe on a presidents choice mc. I know i do but they told me i can only pay them and not my pc mc through my bank. Is this legal? Then told me that it will 90 business days to report the payment to my credit. I don’t feel comfortable paying them and would rather pay my pc MasterCard directly. Can i pay MasterCard or do i have to pay affglo only?
    Thank you
