Can Debt Collection Partners Sue Me or Garnish My Wages?
It is illegal to a debt collector to use empty threats to sue you or garnish your wages. The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act prohibits this action. While this act is illegal, debt collectors may choose to garnish wages for consumers whose debt is verified and legitimate. Debt collection agencies can garnish wages through legitimate legal action if a judgement rules in their favor. Therefore, the wisest move to make is to preemptively contact an attorney BEFORE this judgment may occur. Lemberg Law specializes in debt collection cases, and as a company we have advocated for tens of thousands of victims of debt collector harassment.
