Debt collectors may try to induce payment by threatening to sue you or garnish your wages. Using empty threats of legal action to intimidate consumers into payment is prohibited under the FDCPA. Likewise, collection agencies are highly unlikely to sue for debts which you cannot be verified to owe. However, it should be noted that debt collection agencies can garnish wages through legitimate legal action if a judgement rules in their favor. Above all, we strongly advise you to contact an attorney BEFORE such a judgement would be possible. Here at Lemberg Law, we have advocated for tens of thousands of victims of debt collector harassment. Contact us to see if you may have a case.
