Can Collection Bureau of America 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 Collection Bureau of America 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 Collection Bureau of America?

Absolutely. Here is a Sample Case Filed in Federal Court against Collection Bureau of America

In 2014, a judge in U.S. District Court, Central District of California, refused Collection Bureau of America’s motion for summary judgment in Hernandez vs. Collection Bureau of America for alleged violations of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act. According to the judge’s decision, the customer alleged the Collection Bureau of America robocalled her mobile phone without her permission in an effort to collect a debt which she didn’t owe. CBA argued that the gear used to predict the consumer was not an “automatic phone dialing system” as defined by the TCPA and ruled on by the Federal Communications Commission, so the case shouldn’t move forward. The judge rejected CBA’s argument, ruling that the court lacked jurisdiction to entertain CBA’s challenge of the FCC’s rule, and is rather bound to apply the FCC’s rulings. Therefore, the judge ruled the CBA’s gear is an ATDS beneath the FCC judgment, and refused the debt collection agency’s motion for summary judgment.

Collection Bureau of America 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.
