The harassing company pays our fees.
Is Blitt & Gaines a scam?
They’re legit. Blitt & Gaines is a legitimate debt collection firm with an extensive history of harassing consumers over debts. B&G says that its company philosophy is “Collect Compliantly, Litigate Ethically, Lead Effectively, and Expect Excellence.” This company not only helps creditors take consumers to court, but it also directly engages in debt collection practices outside of court. In what it calls “pre-suit collections,” B&G functions much like any debt collection agency, sending collection letters, running skip tracing, and making repeated telephone calls to consumers.
If you’ve suffered from B&G debt harassment, you do have options. Under the law you can recover up to $1,000 for violations of the FDCPA, and $500 to $1,500 for each cell phone robocall.

Blitt & Gaines 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 B&G 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.
