Can HS Financial Group Sue Me or Garnish My Wages?
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. 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.
The Fair Debt Collections Practices Act (FDCPA) prohibits collection agencies from pursuing debts via over-the-phone harassment. More specifically, this includes excessive, threatening, misleading, and/or untimely calls. If you are a victim of any of these, you may be able to sue the offending collection agency. Likewise, the FCRA regulates the circumstances under and means by which collectors and creditors can report delinquent debts to credit reporting agencies.
Can I sue HS Financial Group for harassment?
Yes. Federal Law allows you to protect your FDCPA rights in court via lawsuit. Consequently, the FDCPA entitles violated consumers to recover damages of up to $1,000, plus attorney fees, court costs, and personal damages.
