Buzzfile estimates Source RM’s annual revenue at $1.8 million and the size of its headquarters staff at 25 employees.

According to its website, SRM’s business is “to maximize…collection return by providing customized collection solutions.” SRM strives to “be the final piece of …the collection puzzle by creating…custom” solutions “using the latest in innovative technology, account scoring, and analytics.”

Can Source Receivables Management 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 Source RM 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 Source Receivables Management?

Absolutely.  You can sue a debt collector. Here are some Sample Cases filed in Federal Court:

In September 2012, in the United States District Court for the Northern District of Illinois, Eastern Division, a judge issued a Memorandum and Order in a class action lawsuit alleging Source Receivables Management had violated certain provisions of the FDCPA. In this case, the plaintiff had originally acquired credit card debt with LVNV Funding, LLC. The defendant fell behind on his payments, and it was sent to Resurgent Capital Services (RCS) for collection. RCS failed to obtain the balance on the delinquent account, and LVNV charged it off in May 2000. The charged-off debt was ultimately sold to SRM. In November 2011, Source Receivables Management sent the plaintiff a collection notice that listed RCS as the client but did not name the original creditor and did not include any information about the original debt. The letter showed a current balance of $11,426.29 and demanded payment to SRM. The letter stated that the plaintiff should contact Source Receivables Management “to avoid further collection efforts,” and also included a statement that the plaintiff had the right to dispute the debt.

The plaintiff alleged several violations in this case. First, because the statute of limitations in Illinois is five years, SRM’s efforts to collect represented an illegal attempt “to collect a debt that was time-barred.” In addition, “the dunning letter does not disclose that the debt is beyond the statute of limitations…and the letter…was a form letter also sent to” other consumers who were named as part of a class action. In addition, the plaintiff’s complaint alleged that SRM’s letter violated provisions of the FDCPA prohibiting “unfair and deceptive acts and practices,” including the misrepresentation of the legal status of the debt. In all, the plaintiff cited five violations of the FDCPA—Section 1692g, 1692e, 1692e(2), 1692e(5), and 1692e(10). The court agreed that the plaintiff had stated a valid claim against SRM for sending a letter that implied that a debt was legally enforceable when it was, “in fact, barred by the statute of limitations.” In addition, the court agreed that the letter stated implication that failure to pay the debt would result in “further collection efforts” was sufficient to convince an unsophisticated debtor that the debt was legally enforceable. Although attorneys for Source Receivables Management cited other cases in which similar collection letters were found not to have violated the FDCPA, the court found that “neither of the letters at issue in those cases contained language comparable to that in the dunning letter” in this case. As a result, SRM’s motion to dismiss the plaintiff’s complaint was denied.

Source Receivables Management 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).

Can I sue Source RM for harassment?

Yes. If you want to enforce your rights, or recover money for violations — you need to sue. Federal 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.

    I co-signed a lease informing them 3 months prior, I was not co-signing again. The tenant moved out and left my furniture. They are charging $ 4700 and cannot itemize this outrageous clean out fee. SRM is the 3rd collection agency. Initially, I paid $ 1200 on it. I am baffled on what to do.

    SRM calls for a Sprint / TMobile bill that I don’t owe. I was not on contract and paid for the service in advance of the month and at the beginning of each month. I transferred my cell service from Sprint / T Mobile on 9/11/2021, I called the that day for account information (confirming that I had no outstanding balance as well) and told them at the time that I was changing services. Sprint/T-Mobile also would have received notice from the new company of the change on the day because I ported my phone number to the new company. I still had about 15 days of service that had been paid when the transfer happened. Sprint /Tmobile tired to collect and I made them aware of it being an error. The next thing I know, I’m getting called for collections and they attempted to put it on my credit report. I had removed from the report (i have full documentation of the service change) but I’m still getting calls.

    I paid another debt collector 700.00 for the sprint bill they claimed I 1200 they said my debt would be settled. 6 months later now source receivables management is saying I owe all this money

  • pau g

    Source receivables put a collection action with all three credit bureaus for
    SPRINT in the amount of $3,047 although I told them I have never in my life had a Sprint account,
    initiated an account, received a statement or invoice from them at any billing address
    They can provide no original invoice or statement ye screwed up my credit with no proof
    Why would sprint wait till I owed them $ 3,000 before taking action? Make no sense

  • taeho c

    I paid all of my payment regarding to sprint. The reason I paid late was that I thought Att automatically took over all of sprint payment which was the penalty of broken contract.

    However there was something wrong.
    When I got it, I paid all of the payment instantly.

    My request is
    why don`t you upgrade my credit score please?

  • Jane

    Awful. Called for an explanation and the call center agent told me to get off her line. Disgusted. Don’t expect any less from sprint to hire these idiots.

  • Felicia M

  • Camie
