It is illegal for a debt collector to make empty threats to sue you or garnish your wages. It is also unlikely Marcam 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.

Actual Complaints Listed on the BBB website
Threatened collection action on a debt that doesn’t belong to me I received a collection notice on a debt that does not belong to me. The previous time I received a collection notice, I called Marcam’s client directly and told them I am not liable for the bills and to remove my name as a responsible party for their debts. I was told they could only do that if the person they have me listed as the responsible party for contacts them and tells them that. So apparently until the end of time, I’ll be listed as liable for any debts this person incurs with their client. I have a message left with Marcam Associates letting them know this is not my debt and to stop sending me notifications, as well as not putting this on my credit report.
I just checked my credit report and they have an infraction on my report saying I owe them $300++?? I don’t know who or what this company is. But they put me in collections for $300++?? I don’t have credit cards or any outstanding bills so how can a company I’ve never heard of who’s not even in the same state as me say I owe them money? Is this identity theft? It’s on my credit report as an infraction. I want this taken off of my report and this company investigated for fraud.
Marcam Associates 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).
But here’s the rub: If you want to enforce your rights, or recover money for violations — you need to sue. These 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.
“I won’t be afraid to contact you or recommend your services to others for applicable legal issues. Please keep up the outstanding work you do, and again, thank you for helping me through this challenging time. I’m most grateful. I can not say thank you enough!”
“Thank you so very much! I’m still so grateful for the blessing of finding you on the internet. I know it’s early, but I wish to wish EVERYONE in Lemberg Law a amazing holiday season!”
“I received outstanding professionalism from the own staff. I had a horrible experience when trying to solve a debt. 1 debt collector associate said she would speak to the prosecutor’s office and another representative told me that when I called the office back he would call the police and have me arrested. I had been insulted, mocked, and threatened, and feared that the police would appear at my door any given moment.”
