Can D&A Services or Dynia & Associates 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 D&A 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 D&A Services?
Absolutely. Here are some past Press Releases of Lawsuits Brought On By Lemberg Law Against D&A Services – Dynia & Associates
May 4, 2017. On behalf of our client, Lemberg Law recently filed a complaint in U.S. District Court, District of Colorado. The case, against Dynia and Associates, charges the debt collection agency with violating state and federal law and asks for $1,000 in statutory damages under the Electronic Fund Transfer Act, plus other relief.
In this digital age, we often don’t think twice about providing companies with our debit card information over the phone. And we may not realize that we are protected by law from having unauthorized amounts withdrawn from our accounts. Our client says that he provided Dynia and Associates with his debit card information over the phone and authorized a one-time payment of $25. To his surprise, Dynia and Associates continued to debit $25 from his account each month for the next six months.
This lawsuit charges that Dynia and Associates violated the Electronic Fund Transfer Act (EFTA) by conducting an electronic fund transfer without our client’s authorization, and by debiting our client’s account without his prior written authorization.
December 8, 2015.There are two things that most people consider annoying: debt collectors and robocalls. Combining the two into robocalling debt collectors can be especially aggravating. Our client claims that Dynia and Associates used robocalls to leave messages on his cell phone to try to collect a debt. However, our client never gave Dynia and Associates his cell phone number nor did he give consent for the debt collection agency to call him.
According to our client, Dynia and Associates also called his mother and told her that he had a debt they were trying to collect. Our client also says it threatened him with jail time if he did not pay the debt.
Oh behalf of our client, Lemberg Law filed a lawsuit in the United States District Court, Northern District of Georgia, against Dynia and Associates. The lawsuit charges that Dynia and Associates violated the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act by revealing debt information to his mother; by engaging in harassing behavior; by causing our client’s phone to ring repeatedly and engaging in telephone conversation with the intent to annoy and harass our client; by using false, deceptive, or misleading representation in connection with the collection of a debt; by threatening our client with imprisonment if the debt was not paid; by employing false and deceptive means to collect a debt; and by using unfair and unconscionable means to collect a debt. The lawsuit also charges Dynia and Associates with violating the Telephone Consumer Protection Act by making automated calls to our client’s cell phone without his consent. It is also charges Dynia and Associates with violating Georgia Fair Business Practices Act. The suit asks for statutory FDCPA damages of $1,000, statutory TCPA damages of $500 to $1,500 per cell phone robocall, and other relief.
D&A Services 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.

This company has called repeatedly stating I need to return their call on an urgent matter. Today I answered their call and the woman said her name and asked for me, saying she has been sending me letters since December (that is untrue). I asked what company she is calling from. She said D&A Services. So I asked what that company is – she started giving me the spiel about being recorded and I said ‘great, what is D&A Services’. She said she couldn’t tell me unless I verified who I was, I said no, she hung up on me.
I received a call from Dynia today. They spoke with the receptionist at my job. Told here that is was a personal matter concerning my husband. I needed to contact them and this would be the last time they tried to contact me. Do they have the right to leave such a message. I am now the subject to several gossip sessions because the receptionist repeated what was said to my co-workers
If I agreed to payment plan with d&a services can I get out of it?
I just received a call at my work. The caller introduced his self as Jovan Lopez. He asked if this was (insert my name), date of birth & last 4 of my Social Security number. I asked him again who he is. He repeated his name. I told him I don’t know anyone by that name. He said he works for D & A Services. I asked him that was. He said he could not go any further until I verify who I am. I told him I was not giving out my information. He got agitated with me and said “You know what…” I interrupted him and said “If this is a debt collector, you are calling my place of employment and that is illegal.” He started laughing and replied “It is not illegal, you need to look it up.” My response is “No. You need to look it up. I am not allowed to be getting personal calls and could lose my job.” Then I told him he can contact my attorney. He asked for his name, which I gave. Then Jovan asked to spell my attorneys last name and I told him “Hold on.” And then I hung up on him.
Is it too late to ask the associate from D&A Collections a validation letter and a cease to desist letter even after she made me say yes to a payment plan?
I also have received a few calls from the same male voice from D& A Services. I have refused to give him any peraonal info. He states there are several people with my name and need me to verify my info with him. Each time I have refused stating I realize I am being recorded and refuse to give.my info. I told him why would someone answer my phone. He told me he could not tell my why he called until I verified my info. I said ok than good bye! I don’t trust anyone!
I have received several calls from this company who refuses to state the business they are calling in reference to even after verifying my full name and last 4 of social. They state they also need to verify more information all before stating the name of the business they are calling in reference to. I have advised them 3 times that the number they are calling is my cell number and not to call again and they have called 3 more times and 3 more times still refusing to identify the business
