Is Revenue Enterprises a scam?
They’re legit.

R.E. has been a BBB-accredited business since 2007. Buzzfile estimates R.E.’s annual revenue at $8.8 million and the size of its headquarters staff at 80 employees.

Can Revenue Enterprises 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 R.E. 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 Revenue Enterprises?
Absolutely. Here are some Sample Complaints
Complaints against Revenue Enterprises cite problems resulting from disputes about the validity of debts and the accuracy and legality of credit reporting and collection practices. In April 2018, a complainant stated that she had been contacted by R.E. regarding several medical bills that were allegedly past due. According to the complainant, R.E. was “reporting false medical claims on her credit report.” The complainant stated that she had “submitted multiple disputes” because “what is being reported isn’t valid.” She alleged that R.E. had “incorrect addresses and names reporting on her credit report,” and that they had “also failed to provide proof of the supposed collections” in the form of a validation notice or “actual bill.” The complainant also stated that she had “received collections calls as early as 5 am and as late as 10 pm from random…phone numbers that belong to” R.E.. She stated that she was “so frustrated at this point that she was tempted to contact a lawyer to weigh her options.” In response, R.E. stated that they had “28 accounts in their system…for medical services provided to a minor child between 2014 and 2017,” and that the complainant “is shown as the responsible party on all of these accounts.” R.E. acknowledged that the complainant had “previously disputed 6 of these accounts in 2017, and their records reflect a complete validation of debt was submitted to her attention at an address” matching the address in the complaint. R.E. also stated that they had “attempted to contact the complainant by phone to discuss these accounts without success.” R.E. stated that they would mail the complainant “a complete validation of all accounts…and that …she should contact them with any further disputes on the information sent.” R.E. also agreed to remove “all accounts from credit reporting.”
In January 2017, a complainant stated that Revenue Enterprises had “summoned her to court for old, out-dated billing with interest and fees totaling $4,044.05.” The complainant alleged that the summons includes outdated information about a charge that should have been “billed correctly through insurance.” The complainant stated that neither she nor her husband can “afford to miss work or have a levy from their checks, as this will compromise… ongoing medical expenses and necessities needed.” The complainant alleged that R.E. “has and continues to cause a significant amount of stress to her family, and she feels very victimized.” In response, R.E. stated that they had “researched her accounts outstanding with their legal department and… provided her with a response by letter to her complaint along with a requested summarization of billing through the original providers.” R.E. acknowledged that “insurance was billed and paid on all outstanding accounts.” However , they also stated that “none of the patients that were treated were eligible… on the dates of service in question and therefore those charges were not billed or shown as a coverage.” Although R.E. acknowledge having moved forward with litigation, they appealed to the complainant to contact their “Legal Manager directly to discuss a plan that will work for her and her family at this time.”
Revenue Enterprises 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.
