Can you help me file a No Fee Lawsuit against Aldridge Pite LLP?

Absolutely.  You can sue a debt collector. Here are some Sample Cases filed in Federal Court

In March 2018, in United States District Court for the Southern District of Georgia, Augusta Division, a judge issued an Order in a case alleging Aldridge Pite had violated provisions of the FDCPA. The plaintiff named 3 defendants in his complaint—AP, Wells Fargo Bank, and Federal National Mortgage Association (FNMA). In this case, the plaintiff owed FNMA $97,916.78 in mortgages on two properties in Augusta, GA. In September 2015, the plaintiff “sent two checks totaling $86,509.24, which allegedly and inexplicably satisfied both mortgages in full.” However, despite having been notified that the obligation had been satisfied, Wells Fargo Bank obtained a “void judgement” and repossessed the property. A year later, in September 2016, the plaintiff filed a lawsuit in an effort to stop the foreclosure proceedings. Subsequently, but before the lawsuit had been resolved, the plaintiff received a collection notice from AP “informing him he owed FNMA $97,916.78; that Wells Fargo was authorized to collect the debt; and that they had been retained in connection with the debt.” Throughout the letter, Aldridge Pite identified itself as a law firm even though “no lawyers were involved in drafting the letter, which was generated by a computer-automated process.” The court construed the plaintiff’s allegations against the defendants liberally “and granting him the benefit of all reasonable inferences to be derived from the facts alleged… found that the plaintiff…arguably stated a claim under the FDCPA against the defendants.”

Much of the rest of the court’s findings in this case consisted of instructions for how to proceed because the plaintiff had appeared in court without an attorney and had requested that the court costs be waived due to his impoverished financial state. As a result, the court provided fairly specific guidance, including instructions for mailing service of process; instructions for Aldridge Pite about how to respond; instructions for serving copies of all pleadings and discovery; instructions for conducting interrogatories and other methods of obtaining new discovery; and instructions for filing change of address information and record-keeping. The court also advised the plaintiff “that he must pursue this case and failure to do so may result in dismissal for want of prosecution.”

Aldridge Pite LLP Calling You?

Federal laws protect you. 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).

Can I sue Aldridge Pite for harassment?

Yes. If you want to enforce your rights, or recover money for violations — you need to sue. Federal laws provide individuals like you with a means to seek monetary damages in court. For example, the FDCPA allows consumers who have been violated to recover damages of up to $1,000, plus attorney fees and court costs.

    Aldridge Pite attorney will all reap their crimes. AP and their partner Anglin Flewelling
    Rasmuseen Campbell & Trytee denied me due process in the bk court with help of bk judges and continued to use their fake criminal documents to steal my home in Nuevo California. I could not complete my bk 13 as these savages were so fixated in the theft. Mike Baker lost the ud msj and I won…but guess banks and attorneys paid for the election contributions and i did not. My best expert witness and attorney Lynn Szymoniak was ready to testify about the fake Assignment of deed of trust created by Aldridge Pite attorneys but was shoved under carpet at a bk hearing set to have China Brown and AP explain why they submitted fake assignment for a defunct business. The original lender attorney put in writing that any docs created by wells Fargo are fake…as wells Fargo had zero interest. I could not sell my home under 1031 due to AP and Anglin crimes; locked out of competing a successful bk13; Riverside Courts continue to baby the crooked group. I plan to go after their errors and omission….I have enough to prove their bullying and harassment. Mentally….these people are worse than a horror movie. Never give up…you will prevail. I won 1 appeal proving AP stole on a deed of trust with lender that never existed.
    I talked to Freddie mac fraud compliance debt tonight and demanded to know if Freddie mac shareholders authorize AP and Anglin et al to file fake docs with forged signatures of Janet L Jones. Was I born for AP and Anglin et al to steal with fake forged docs and deny my a ability to

    After filing ch7 and being discharged in 2017, APH has put as lien when anything does a search for a title for me. The same “debt” in question was discharged under a different name but there is an obvious trail where they’ve bought the “debt” from the original entity. They would not speak to me and gave my BR attorney the run around. Never received one piece of correspondence in relation to this whatsoever. Only to find out when we’re in the closing stages of getting our first home that there is a “balance owed to them on debt over 7 years old” (in the timespan of me filing and being discharged from BR.) I’ve filed bankruptcy, paid my dues, waited my time, and rebuilt my credit and have been responsible only to be told that despite my bankruptcy, this is still a collectible lien. Honestly I feel like they’re just being crooked.

    Most consumers are not aware of the definition of a “debt collector” within the meaning of the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, (“FDCPA”). If a creditor “owns the debt” it is trying to collect on, then it is NOT considered a debt collector under the federal rules. However, IF the original creditor SELLS the debt to a third party like Bank of America did with my mortgage loan when they sold it to Fannie Mae in 2008, then Bank of America is no longer “The creditor to whom the debt is owed”…Fannie Mae is! This however, made little difference to the dishonest, unethical, self-serving Aldridge Pite lawyers who not only tried to do an “end-run” around my attorney by sending its dunning letter DIRECTLY TO ME, but also getting caught LYING in the process by claiming its client, Bank of America “owned the debt”.WHY, you ask, do so many debt collection law firms like Aldridge Pite DELIBERATELY LIE when it comes to identifying WHO the real creditor is? Simple – it’s how they try to SHIELD their client from the possibility of an FDCPA claim in federal court! Aldridge Pite “rolls the dice” and waits to see if they get caught lying about who owns the debt. If their fraudulent misrepresentations are NOT challenged by the consumer…then they’ve GOTTEN AWAY with it! It’s a Numbers Game with them – they play the odds! And for you debtors in Florida, don’t forget we also have the STATE version of the FDCPA – it’s called the Florida Consumer Collections Practices Act, (“FCCPA”) and it is MORE comprehensive than the FDCPA is and provides consumers with MANY options as how to deal with crooked debt collection law firms like Aldridge Pite! CONSUMERS – DO YOUR DUE DILIGENCE – STUDY THE DEBT COLLECTION LAWS – DON’T BE A VICTIM OF LAW FIRMS LIKE ALDRIDGE PITE! They CAN be beaten in Court!

    Aldridge Pite said they are going to foreclose on my home. I have been making my payments diligently for several years by bank payments. They represent Ocwen and I have had a lot of problems with Ocwen.

    Aldrich, Pite Hhan are garnishing my wages. I thought this was illegal.

  • Edward C

    In 2008 a group of Bank of America loan officers at the Hollywood, Fl. branch forged falsely inflated income information on my loan application (after I submitted it) to get the predatory fraudulently generated loan approved and collect their Incentive Bonus money. Bank of America sold the Note, (the “debt”) to Fannie Mae on July 1, 2008, less than 3 months after the loan was generated and FNMA has owned the debt ever since. For the past 10 years I have been dealing with Bank of America’s never-ending parade of foreclosure mill/debt collection lawyers, all of whom have tried (unsuccessfully) to foreclose on my home. I have not made a mortgage payment in 10 years and I am NOT in foreclosure…what does that tell you? BoA’s “flavor of the month” in crooked LYING debt collection lawyers is Aldridge Pite, who recently sent me a foreclosure threat letter in which they falsely state: “The creditor to whom the debt is owed is BANK OF AMERICA, N.A.” That statement was a blatant LIE and now I have them and Bank of America in federal court AGAIN for FDCPA/FCCPA violations. Just wondering how many times you’ve heard this same story or something similar to it?

    We are being sued in Oregon by Zwicker & Assoc. for a debt that we do not owe, to US Bank, which mis-accounted an online transfer payment. The only evidence they have is an affidavit, which purports to have been prepared by a person with day to day access and personal knowledge of US Bank’s records. A dedicated search revealed that the affiant actually works for AP in Georgia, and formerly worked for another collections agency that contracts with US Bank. In other words, it is a robo-signed, falsely sworn affidavit.

    We attempted to have the aff. striken, but trial judge was not inclined to find in favor of a pro se over US Bank. I doubt he read the filings.

    Not sure you can help, just getting this info out there….

  • Lana B

    We’ve had and are experiencing a very bad experience with Aldridge Pite firm, they posted court documents claiming they served in person, [face to face], an eviction notice in May 2018 to a woman and john and jane doe, claiming that she refused to leave the house, who had died 2 years prior in 2016 and made false claims that her heirs had moved in after she died and then moved out 30 days later, seeking the court to issue arrest warrants for the heirs for breaking and entering the property which never occurred. They just filed it and left it hanging there! I would definitely call that a bad experience!
