If you’ve suffered from Direct Recovery Services 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.
Who does Direct Recovery Services (DRS) collect for?
Direct Recovery Services is an attorney-based national and worldwide collection agency that specializes in consumer and business accounts. The business works on a contingency basis, meaning that they get paid a percentage of what they collect. The contingency fee is lower on accounts which aren’t long past due. This encourages creditors to turn accounts over to the collection service earlier.

Can Direct Recovery Services 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 Direct Recovery Services 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.
