Can Asset Management Outsourcing 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 AMO 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 Asset Management Outsourcing?
Complaints against Asset Management Outsourcing cite problems resulting from disputes about the validity of debts, and allegations of harassment. In January 2019, a complainant stated that he had been contacted by AMO regarding “a bogus medical bill” for about $200.00 that allegedly originated from his insurance company. According to the complainant, he currently has insurance, and they were not asking him to pay any outstanding balances; only AMO was “demanding this amount,” which he claimed not to owe. He called his insurance company, and they stated that they do not know anything about“this bill from ‘Nationwide Recovery Service.’”He also said that the letter he received “has 3 different addresses on it” and stated that if he didn’t “pay the amount in 35 days that his debt will be sent to collections.” He“checked his credit report,” but no indication of the delinquent bill had yet appeared. He said he had received the letter in early December, and that at the time of the complaint, 35 days had not yet elapsed. He was “very worried about what may… happen and what he can do to not feel so helpless.” He also said he had “worked very hard on his credit, and if AMO… damages his score with a bill he doesn’t even owe, that is very unjust” and does not believe AMO should be able to“get away with it.”
In June 2017, another complainant stated that Asset Management Outsourcing had been continuously calling him. According to the complainant, he “usually blocks the numbers,” so now they had begun calling his place of employment,“saying they are a process service company and need to speak to the complainant’s‘manager’ about their policy on serving people at the office.” The complainant told AMO “to bring on the papers, and they proceeded to ask the complainant to verify” his identity. The complainant was employed at a law firm, so he knew their approach was “not normal protocol for process service in his state.” The complainant also said he had received calls from other numbers “out of Florence, South Carolina,” during which he was told that he has “a pending lawsuit and to call” a specified number, “ask for the legal department, and give them his case number.” The complainant said he complied with their instructions, but when he called the “‘legal department’ and gave them his ‘case number,’ they proceeded to ask him to ‘verify’ who he was by giving them his date of birth and the last four digits of his social security number.” He requested that the harassment and continued calls to his place of employment and family and friends cease.
Asset Management Outsourcing 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).
But here’s the rub: If you want to enforce your rights, or recover money for violations — you need to sue. These 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.
Consumers have reported this agency harassing them from the following numbers:
“We realize that ours is only one little case among many — and a lot more serious — but are heartened by the fact that you accepted it and represented us with a professionalism which belied the small dollar amount.”
“When my husband got sick and lost his job, I understood that paying all of the medical bills was going to be an issue. What I didn’t understand was that we’d be bombed with telephone calls day and night. I found your site and was contacted the same day that I submitted my advice. You did not charge me, you got cash from the collector, and we finally have silent phones. Thank you for what you did for us!”
“Lemberg Law contacted me within a few hours of me submitting my advice on their website. That same afternoon Daniel emailed me instructions about what to do the second time the collection agency called. Within a week, the calls had ceased. Today marks week two and we have not had a call in 3 days. I can not say thank you enough.”
