Is Greenback Recovery Group a scam?

They’re legit. The Better Business Bureau (BBB) established a profile page for Greenback Recovery Group, LLC in 2015.

Buzzfile estimates GRG’s annual revenue at $73,000 and the size of its headquarters staff at 3 employees.

The Kununu company review website also hosts a profile page for GRG, but this profile does not provide any detailed information about GRG’s business practices. There is one employee review that gives GRG an excellent rating as a great place to work.

Can Greenback Recovery Group 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 GRG 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.

Complaints against Greenback Recovery Group cite problems resulting from disputes about the validity of debts, the accuracy of billing and accounting procedures, and allegations of harassment. In April 2019, a complainant stated that a GRG representative had been “calling her cell phone.” She stated that she had not had any “business dealings with” GRG prior to their call, so she “refused to verify or give any of her personal information, other than to verify that she is the person with whom they are asking to speak.” She also verified her e-mail address. She said she had “requested that GRG provide her with their mailing address so that she could request that they stop contacting her via phone and send everything in writing,” but the GRG representatives allegedly “hung up on her the second time she tried getting this information.” When she contacted GRG a third time, the GRG representative allegedly accused her of misleading GRG about her identity. The complainant stated that she had“recordings of all the conversations she… had” with GRG and accused them of being rude and untrustworthy. In addition, she said that she had discovered that their license had been suspended in the state of New York. In response, GRG accused the complainant of calling them daily and harassing the collections staff. They stated that she “owes a …very large debt” and that she “will do anything to avoid paying it.” GRG also stated that they have ceased all collection activity on the account.

In November 2017, a complainant stated that Greenback Recovery Group had been telling him he “needed to call …and set up a time to have a notice delivered to his home or employer to prevent legal action against him.”According to the complainant, when he called GRG, the representative “refused to provide him with a name and stated they had written and called him for months.” GRG allegedly accused him of evading and defrauding them. The complainant replied that he had  never heard of GRG and had not received any communication from them “before this conversation and the numerous ‘unknown’ calls and harassing messages” they had left. Regardless, the GRG representative allegedly continued to make accusations and demands. The complainant “asked them to mail this information to him for his review,” but GRG allegedly told him, “It’s past that. The courier will deliver something.You have to sign at your home or employer.” GRG told him the debt was for $600 but they would settle today for $350. The complainant refused to give them money without verification, and GRG told him they would take legal action and hung up on him.

Greenback Recovery Group 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).

Can I sue GRG for harassment?

Yes. If you want to enforce your rights, or recover money for violations — you need to sue. Federal 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.

What Our Clients are Saying

“I used to get up to 15 calls a week from several collection agencies. It got so bad I felt like I should just get a new phone number to make it quit. Happily, I discovered Lemberg Law. They immediately put an end to the calls. Now, when my phone rings I do not dread it.”

“Prior to contacting you, we had tried repeatedly to handle this matter without threatening litigation. In the end, not only were they unapologetic, but they were dismissive – even of an attorney friend who called on our behalf. Sincerest thanks for resolving this matter for us!”

    GRG called me regarding a supposed debt. I was advised that Inwould have a suit filed against me on 9/18/20 if I did not pay immediately. As I was not familiar with the debt I requested additional information . I was provided a statement with company name of Gateway Recovery for which I could find no such company however I looked up the address and it was Greenback Recovery. They falsely identified themselves therefore I sent a certified letter and lodged a complaint with the BBB. Their response to my complaint was that I called them using vulgarities and they advised the BBB that I told them I was a drug user who doesn’t care about my debts!!! I am beyond disgusted and this company needs to be stopped!
