However, these companies can still summon debtors to court and garnish wages after a default judgement. If you find that American Web Loan may have violated the FDCPA, the wisest course of action would be to hire legal aid.

A complainant claims that American Web Loan opened a loan under their name, “without consent or authorization”. The complainant explains that they never applied for a loan from this lender company. The complainant would like to know how this company gained access to their financial accounts and deposited $300 into a savings account that is currently not in use. It was after the complainant discovered this discrepancy that they proceeded to call the lender company, American Web Loan to demand that they take the funds back and close the account. The company refused to do so, demanding that the complainant pay $339 instead. The complainant explains that, “They fraudulently opened this loan and deposited that money”. There should be a consensual part of this transaction, as the complainant never chose to take out this loan.

I was also a part of the class a lawsuit in which they were ordered to cancel my debt. They are no longer on my credit report, but now some other company is calling and saying he is not a collection agency but rather this is headed to litigation if I don’t pay it now. How is this possible? I thought this debt was cancelled several years ago. I even received a notice ID about the settlement.
I paid off an American Web loan through RCS collection agency on 3/1/21. I was never informed of a class action suit. When I paid it off, RCS told me the creditor was taking back their accounts and another collection agency was taking over. I have the letter showing it was paid. Almost immediately I began receiving harassing calls from another agency. Since then my wife and I continue to get phone calls from another agency who has also contacted my previous employer. I have provided them copies of the letter showing it was paid but they continue to call regularly.
I was part of a class-action suit and they are still harassing me.
