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 Resource Management Group?
Absolutely. Here are some Sample Complaints
Complaints against Resource Management Group cite problems resulting from disputes about the validity of debts and allegations of harassment. In June 2016, a complainant stated that RMG had been “using a 10-year old fraudulent debt that does not exist to harass” him. According to the complainant, RMG called and harassed him “regarding a debt…from 2008. He contacted the original debtor,” and they allegedly told him that “the debt never existed,” and that he has “no open or closed accounts with that company.” Regardless, RMG left “messages on his phone threatening legal action and threatening to show… up to his home and work.” In addition, they left “protected information such as debt information, a social security number, and birth dates on voice mail” messages.“The collectors allegedly listed that same information on the phone without verifying the person they were speaking to.” The complainant stated that these actions are “direct violations of state and federal collection practices and consumer protection laws.” He said he had “recorded phone conversations with various employees and voice mail recordings from RMG.” He requested that RMG “cease and desist all activity in regards to” his alleged debt; “delete his account and never initiate any further correspondence to” him; and “to cease and desist all collections activity from debts or accounts older than the originating state’s statute of limitations, as…required by law.”
In May 2019, a complainant stated that Resource Management Group had “almost scammed him for a 10-year old credit card debt that was already paid years ago.” According to the complainant, RMG “will not stop calling” him. He said that “a basic search online” indicated that their efforts appeared to be a “scam,” with their post office box addresses “pulling up to other companies.” He said they had refused to “provide their physical location,” and that the North Carolina Secretary of State’s records associated “3 other companies at the same address.”
In February 2019, a complainant alleged that RMG was using “false information… for collection of a debt,” and that RMG provided “no proof of debt/who actually owes” the alleged debt. According to the complainant he was “contacted by two different collection agencies regarding this same ‘debt’ of a MasterCard he had no knowledge of.”RMG was allegedly the third agency to contact him, and when he asked them to clarify, he said he “was assured that they were the ones collecting.” However, when he “asked for some form of proof that the debt even occurred, …he was given several different dates of when it occurred.” The RMG “agent then listed off ‘previous addresses,’” including an address in Louisiana. The complainant stated that he had “never been to Louisiana in his life,” but when he “questioned her about this, …she allegedly refused to address the false information.” He said he was “not comfortable paying a debt he has no knowledge of when three different parties are trying to collect the same thing.”
Resource Management Group 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.
