Can Pendrick Capital Partners 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 PCP 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 2019, a proposed class action was filed in Florida federal court claiming that Pendrick Capital Partners, LLC and Debt Recovery Solutions, LLC misled a consumer with regard to the possible revival of her time-barred debt.
Complaints against Pendrick Capital Partners commonly cite problems resulting from information reported to the credit reporting agencies and requests for debt verification, as well as dissatisfaction with the way in which PCP addresses those concerns. In March 2017, a complainant indicated that she had received an emergency room bill for her daughter from 2014. The item appeared on her credit report with PCP identified as the original creditor. After paying the bill, one of the agencies deleted the item, but the other two continued to report it as a delinquency. The complainant indicated that she had called Pendrick Capital Partners and requested their assistance in resolving the problem. PCP verified that the bill had been paid but declined to intervene with the credit reporting agencies. According to the complainant, PCP was “giving…her the run around to contact each agency they sold the account…to so they could remove it from reporting.” The complainant insisted that “collection agencies should not report delinquencies if the account is being transferred to another agency.” In addition, the complainant indicated that “the collection is still being reported by one of PCP’s agencies, even though they…have not had the account since February 7th, 2017.” The complainant requested that PCP remove the collection item attributed to their collection agency.
In response, Pendrick Capital Partners acknowledged that the complainant was dissatisfied with the delinquencies appearing on her credit report. They corrected the complainant’s reporting of events, insisting that although she had paid the account, it was not until March 2017. They assured her that the “payment will be reported to… the credit reporting agencies within the time limits specified by the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA).” As for her request to have PCP intervene on her behalf, PCP indicated that they are “not a data furnisher to any credit reporting agency and as such have no direct ability to update her credit report.” However, they indicated that their affiliated collection agency, Revenue Group, “has deleted their tradeline regarding the above account and sent the deletion request to the credit bureaus. They have also sent written confirmation of that directly to” the complainant. Pendrick Capital Partners reminded the complainant that “PCP or Revenue Group cannot control how long that deletion will take at each credit reporting agency.”
