Is Lakeside Recovery Solutions a scam?
They’re legit. Lakeside Recovery Solutions can be considered a legitimate collections company due to the fact that it has been in business for many years . Therefore, it is unwise to ignore the need to resolve your debt and write off this collections company as a scam. However, the collections business has not been accredited by the Better Business Bureau and has received a horrific “D-” rating from the BBB.
Additionally, Lakeside Recovery Solutions claims to pride themselves on running their business with, “respect, integrity and an unwavering commitment to compliance and operational excellence”. The collections company additionally claims to provide “expert” guidance to consumers who are dealing with debt discrepancy. The company also notes on their collections website that the company mission is based on three principles: “To attract, preserve and grow our client partnerships, To produce exceptional recovery results with a focus on the customer experience and our commitment to regulatory compliance, To ensure a productive, profitable and rewarding environment for each and every member of our team”.

Who does Lakeside Recovery Solutions collect for?
Lakeside Recovery Solutions does not cite on their website which specific area of collections that they specialize in, or what specific companies they work for. Due to this lack of information available on this collections website, it is wisest to confirm which debt is specifically owed and to whom when inquiring about your debt. Due to the outsourcing of debt, inquiring as soon as possible is the smartest move to make because one collection account can turn into many reporting on your credit file if the debt is not dealt with.

Can Lakeside Recovery Solutions Sue Me or Garnish My Wages?
Like most collections companies, Lakeside Recovery Solutions would likely only choose to sue or garnish wages after a default judgement. This choice is due to the fact that it is illegal for Lakeside Recovery Solutions to make empty threats to sue you or garnish your wages. Therefore, a collection company would likely choose not to sue you for a debt you may not owe or they cannot verify, but it is the wisest option to contact an attorney preemptively to ensure the safety of your assets and rights. Lemberg Law awards consumers the power to fight back against these fraudulent collection practices. Need Help? Call us today.

They call me and my sister day and night. I have never listed my sister nber on anything and when they called they said their going to take the money from my account and take me to court. She said I refuse to pay which I did not even get to say anything on the phone…..
They make it sound like I have a “docket” and that they will be taking legal action against me and my social security number. They stated that I have been “served” yet I have received no proof of service via mail or by a process server. They did not tell me in what the debt was in regards to. They also called from a number with a 559 area code, so they are definitely caller ID fraud.
