Can you help me file a No Fee Lawsuit against AvanteUSA Ltd?
Absolutely. You can sue a debt collector. Here Are Some Press Releases of Lawsuits Brought On By Lemberg Law
November 26, 2015. When it comes to debt settlements, it’s always important to verify the agreement and keep close track of what happens as events unfold. Our client tells us that, in April, Brownstone Law Group, which is AvanteUSA’s agent, negotiated a settlement between AvanteUSA and our client. The agreement was to settle the debt for $290. Our client paid that amount with the understanding that the debt would be paid in full.
But in June, our client received a call from TrueAccord, a debt collector trying to collect the same debt. TrueAccord told our client that AvanteUSA had reversed the $290 payment and sent her account to TrueAccord for collection. AvanteUSA called our client and their representative told her that the $290 had been reversed, but didn’t give a reason.
When our client looked at her records, she found that AvanteUSA had refunded her $290 payment – after accepting and holding the payment for over a month.
Our client’s case, which was recently filed in U.S. District Court, Central District of California, charges AvanteUSA with violating the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act by using false, deceptive, or misleading representation in connection with the collection of a debt; and by using unfair and unconscionable means to collect a debt. It asks for statutory damages of $1,000, plus other relief. It also charges AvanteUSA with violating California’s Rosenthal Fair Debt Collection Practices Act.
