Can Optimum Outcomes Inc 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 Optimum Outcomes 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. Find out if we can help you too today!
In 2014, a judge in U.S. District Court, Northern District of Illinois, denied in part and granted in part Optimum Outcomes’ motion to strike class allegations in Buonomo vs. Optimum Outcomes for alleged violations of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act. According to the judge’s decision, the consumer claimed that Optimum Outcomes robocalled his cell phone in an attempt to collect a medical debt from someone other than the consumer. He alleged that Optimum Outcomes violated the TCPA by robocalling his cell phone without his consent. Optimum Outcomes argued that the consumer didn’t meet the standards for a class action claim. The court rejected that argument, but did determine that the proposed class was overbroad, and ordered the consumer to file an amended complaint with an amended proposed class definition.

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).

They call me every morning between 7 and 9 am and then again some time in the afternoon, every single day. And when i answer either they hang up or its a robot calling telling me i have to call them or action will be taken against me. I dont even know what bill they are calling for because i never get to speak to anyone. But the calls are none stop. They wake my baby up early every morning and then she is in a bad mood cause she is not getting enough sleep. And my phone is on vibrant but the vibration sounds still wake her up. I have to put it on silent or turn it off but then i miss important calls i need to answer. Please make them stop. Or at least only call once a week and at least tell me what they are calling for when they do call. Please i cant take it no more, its been going on for over a year now.
Optimum Outcomes is calling and reporting me to credit bureaus for a debt which has already been settled.
Optimum outcome is claiming my husband owes $167, they call all the time ,they reported to 3 credit bureaus but there is no account number listed and will not give any info
They’ve been calling me for the longest time but I did not pick up due to not knowing who the number was and because they always call me at work or after business hours so I thought they were a scam. I finally answered today for someone to tell me that they are calling from Optimum Outcomes INC and that they have an important message for me but upon me asking what the message was, they won’t tell me…what is going on?
Unending phone calls from Optimum Outcomes. I wrote a threatening letter to its president, Daniel J. Mulligan, who lives in Roswell GA, not to do violence but to come to his home and not to leave until he promised to give me his written assurance that the terrible, harassing calls would cease.
Contacted me by mail and I advised account was paid in full prior to being contacted by them and included check transaction numbers sent to medical provider. Called my phone all day every day after receiving my letter. I made the mistake of answering. Representative was calling to collect on an account already paid in full to medical provider. Rep got mad that there would be no collection and threatened me stating “we do report to credit agencies.” Collection showed up on my credit report the next day with a random dollar amount. I consider this fraudulent reporting. Spoke with “Supervisor” and- surprise- they came up with an additional $$ amount from same provider that I did not owe, either,
I thought they were scammers initially. They call and are insistent about taking the payment over the phone. They refuse to send me a written bill.
They sent a final notice once and I immediately paid a pmt.
I got tired of telling them I would gladly pay if they just send an invoice. Now I just ignore the calls. I don’t trust them and they will never get my bank info.
Mail me a statement and get paid.
