Can Superlative RM Comstock Holdings 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 SRM 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.

Complaints against Superlative RM cite problems resulting from telephone calls and collection letters that may violate FDCPA provisions. In December 2018, a complainant indicated that he had received a “threatening letter… demanding that he pay $1,758.27 to” SRM. The complainant stated that he had “no knowledge of this debt and does not like to be threatened with letters from an unknown creditor for an unknown debt which does not belong to” him. He stated that he would be “sending this threatening letter from…SRM to the government agencies that handle threatening letters from debt collectors.” He also requested that SRM “never contact him again and never send him any threatening letters in the future.” He concluded by telling SRM that if they continue to contact him, he “will take legal action.” In response, SRM stated that they are a “licensed debt collection agency,” and that the “account…referenced in the complaint was placed with Superlative RM for contingency collections on 11/14/2018.” SRM stated that they had “first attempted contact with the complainant on 11/16/2018, utilizing the attached letter,” and that “no other contact was established.” SRM also stated that they had “closed the referenced account and returned it to their client.” They also stated that “no further efforts will be made by SRM to contact” the complainant.
In October 2017, a complainant stated that SRM had “called her place of work asking for” her. The complainant stated that her “coworker said she could not receive phone calls at work,” but SRM “insisted on still speaking and asking for her name and… the last four digits of her social security” number. The complainant’s coworker “insisted that the complainant could not receive personal calls at work, but the person on the phone then gave the last four digits of the complainant’s social security number and asked” for confirmation that it was the complainant’s information. The complainant also stated that SRM had made “phone calls every hour on the hour with an unknown number” without leaving a message. In response, SRM stated that “their employees… adhere… to all requirements of the FDCPA and state laws.” They also stated that SRM “records all calls, and prior to any conversation, every collector states to every consumer that the call is being recorded.” SRM agreed that they had tried to reach the complainant at her place of employment but insisted they had not violated any laws. However, they agreed to cease all efforts to contact the complainant by phone.
