Is A.G. Adjustments a scam?
They’re legit. A.G. Adjustments can be considered a legitimate collections company due to the fact that it has been in business for 48 years. Therefore, it is unwise to ignore the need to resolve your debt and write off A.G. Adjustments as a scam. A.G. Adjustments was established in 1972 and was accredited by the Better Business Bureau in February of 2017. The company is a midsized collections agency that has received an “A+” rating on the Better Business Bureau. Under the “Services” tab of their website, A.G. Adjustments categorizes their services as “commercial/B2B collection, small business/B2B collection, AR management outsourcing, credit and debt collection seminars, debt collection letter writing, and international collections”. The company also explains that their staff members have been with A.G. Adjustments for an average of 8 years, which is 3 times longer than the industry average. Additionally, the company notes that they utilize the latest reporting technology, “leverage” industry connections, and will recover “the maximum amount of money in the minimum amount of time”.

Can A.G. Adjustments 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, A.G. Adjustments 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.

Can you help me file a No Fee Lawsuit against A.G. Adjustments?
Absolutely. You can sue a debt collector. Here is a sample complaint:
A complainant claims that they had attempted to resolve a bill with A.G. Adjustments several times. The complainant explains that the billing for this specific debt was wrong, due to the fact that it stated his/her employer, who is not responsible for the bill. The complainant has asked the company “countless times to correct that to no avail”. Even after speaking with their employer, the collections company still refused to adjust the file to put the bill in his/her name instead of the employer’s. The complainant claims that A.G. Adjustments has, “been extremely rude and unprofessional” every time he/she deals with them. The complainant also claims that they have been called a, “deadbeat, liar , etc. all in a very unprofessional manner”. Because the complainant has not denied responsibility to the bill, but has instead been forced to repeatedly ask to correct the bill and remove their employer’s name, they feel as though A.G. Adjustments should suffer a consequence for their lack of professionalism and miscommunication. The complainant continued to explain that A.G. Adjustments harassed both him/her and their employer, even going as far as to call her place of work and tell other employees that he/she, “was a dead beat and owed them money”. The complainant would like to seek legal action due to the improper business standards of A.G. Collections and the lack of adherence to federal regulations.
