Can National Account Systems of Omaha 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 NAS would sue you for a debt you may not owe or they cannot validate.

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 National Account Systems of Omaha?
Absolutely. Here are some Sample Complaints
Complaints against National Account Systems of Omaha cite problems resulting from disputes about the validity of debts and the accuracy of information reported to the credit reporting agencies. In March 2018, a complainant stated that he had been a tenant of an apartment complex that he had later vacated with “no bills due, confirmed with the apartment manager.” Regardless, the complainant stated that NAS had reported delinquent items on his credit report as past due. The complainant confirmed that he had been a tenant at the property listed on his credit report, and that “there was a closing balance” due at the end of his lease, but that he had paid off the balance. He supplied NAS with a date and confirmation number. Unfortunately, the complainant had recently “applied for a loan for home refinancing,” and when the finance company “did his credit check, NAS Omaha…popped up saying there was a balance due.” The complainant “contacted the apartment complex over the phone, and they repeatedly said that the account ledger shows no pending bills.” The complainant requested that the apartment manager contact NAS, but “they said they already did and found no related account or person.” They also apologized but insisted that they could not call NAS again. According to the complainant, when he called NAS, the representative told him they could not remove the information unless the apartment manager called them. The complainant stated that the negative report “is severely affecting his credit score,” and that at his advanced age, he has been“put under a financial crisis.” He asked both the BBB and NAS to investigate “and release his case.” He also stated that “due to mortgage payments, he still continues to work far from his hometown…and is also getting serious health issues due to tension.” In addition, “the same issue hindered him from finding an apartment,” so now he is paying excess monthly rent“far off from his work place due to this rental history issue.” He feels there is “no justice in this country,” and that his “family is divided due to financial pressures.”
In response, National Account Systems stated that they had received the complaint “regarding the account placed for collection from” the apartment complex. According to NAS, their “office did reach out to” the property manager, “and they have advised NAS that the complainant had paid in full.” As a result, “due to this being paid in full,” NAS promised to “close the account and update all three major credit bureaus showing the debt has been paid off.” NAS asked the complainant to “allow 30-45 days for this update to reflect on his credit reports.”
National Account Systems of Omaha 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.
