Is Sortis Financial a Scam?
They’re legit. Sortis Financial has been in operation for a number of years and has received an “A-” rating from the Better Business Bureau. However, the BBB has not accredited Sortis Financial as a business. With this being said, one can still conclude that Sortis Financial is a real business. Be sure to contact this collections company regarding your debt instead of writing them off as a scam.
Sortis Financial lists their values on their collection website. These values include: client focus, hardwork, integrity, and creativity. In regard to integrity, the company writes, “Sortis Financial respects and upholds the rights of our clients and partners. We are committed to engaging in fair and responsible business practices and instilling confidence in all parties.” One can conclude that this company would likely take collections matters very seriously, however, it is possible that some complainants may argue the contrary and claim that this collections company violated collector’s law. In regard to leadership, Sortis Financial does not leave a contact or business manager name on their BBB page. Lastly, according to dnb.com the collections company has “100 total employees across all of its locations and generates $19.74 million in sales (USD).”
Who does Sortis Financial collect for?
According to their website, Sortis Company collects on behalf of creditors in the home mortgage sector. While this may be the case, it is still essential that as a consumer you contact Sortis Financial to inquire about your specific debt and adequately resolve your debt discrepancy. By contacting the collections company, you award yourself the power to gain necessary information to verify your alleged debt and attain details on the account owed. Acquiring this information is important because due to the outsourcing of debt, one collection account can turn into many reporting on your credit file if the debt is not dealt with.

Can Sortis Financial Sue Me or Garnish My Wages?
Debt collectors may try to induce payment by threatening to sue you or garnish your wages. Using empty threats of legal action to intimidate consumers into payment is prohibited under the FDCPA. Likewise, collection agencies are highly unlikely to sue for debts which you cannot be verified to owe. However, it should be noted that debt collection agencies can garnish wages through legitimate legal action if a judgement rules in their favor. We strongly advise you to contact an attorney BEFORE such a judgement would be possible. Here at Lemberg Law, we have advocated for tens of thousands of victims of debt collector harassment. Contact us to see if you may have a case.

Unlawful Debt Harassment? Learn the Law & Sue the Collector.
Can you help me file a No Fee Lawsuit against Sortis Company?
Absolutely. You can sue a debt collector.
A complainant explains that they received a notification from the IRS saying that the complainant owes taxes on their 2018 tax income plus interest. The amount was an astounding $13,915 which exists due to the cancellation of debt. The complainant claims that they have never heard of Sortis Financial but assumes this debt relates to a house that they foreclosed on. More specifically, the issue the complainant is having is that they were never contacted by this collections company and never received notification of the debt owed. It appears to be unethical that this collections company is reporting the debt to the IRS without notifying the complainant.
Sortis Financial Calling You?
The Fair Debt Collections Practices Act (FDCPA) prohibits collection agencies from pursuing debts via over-the-phone harassment. More specifically, this includes excessive, threatening, misleading, and/or untimely calls. If you are a victim of any of these, you may be able to sue the offending collection agency. Likewise, the FCRA regulates the circumstances under and means by which collectors and creditors can report delinquent debts to credit reporting agencies.
Can I sue Sortis Financial for harassment?
