Can Millennium Financial 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 MFG 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.

Can you help me file a No Fee Lawsuit against Millennium Financial Group LLC – MFG?
Absolutely. Here are some Sample Cases
Complaints against Millennium Financial Group commonly cite problems resulting from disputes about the validity of debts and the accuracy of information reported to the credit reporting agencies. In April 2016, a complainant indicated she had fallen behind on a debt that resulted in its appearing on her credit report in 2008. She stated that the item dropped from her credit report in 2015 “because the debt was over seven years old…but now MFG is sending …her letters to pay.” The complainant alleged that “this process is illegal and” that she is “on disability and trying to get…her finances… together.” The complainant “called in and disputed the information and told …MFG it was too old and they should not have even tried collecting” the debt. MFG allegedly told her they “would put the debt down as disputed.” She complained that “some of us are having a hard…enough time as it is and for…MFG to be trying to collect…something old and then trying to place it back to the credit bureaus is sad.” In response, Millennium Financial Group indicated that they had “made several attempts to reach this consumer by phone and mail since 2013.” They also stated that the “account has since fallen off the credit bureaus and will not be submitted to any credit… bureau.” As a result, MFG “does not understand why this consumer states we are ‘trying to place it back to the credit bureaus.’” MFG stated they had no intention or desire of re-submitting the delinquency to the credit reporting agencies, and that “the credit bureaus would not allow the account to be reported again.” Millennium Financial Group concluded by stating they would treat the complaint “as a written cease and desist and has closed the file and will not further contact the consumer.”
In February 2016, a complainant indicated that a “collection account was placed on…her credit report without any communication to… her, and that …a man…is harassing her during work” hours. The complainant alleged that she had not received any notification prior to the delinquency appearing on her credit report, and that she has no knowledge of the alleged debt. She charged MFG with an FDCPA violation. In response, Millennium Financial Group stated that “multiple letters have previously been sent to the consumer including the initial validation notice along with notification of credit bureau… reporting.” They also stated that because the complainant had not received the letters, they had re-sent them to the address she had provided in the complaint, and that the item reported to the credit reporting agencies will be updated to indicate a disputed status. They concluded by stating that they would send complete debt validation information.
Millennium Financial Group MFG 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.
