Is The Cadle Company a scam?
They’re legit. According to the Better Business Bureau (BBB), The Cadle Company, Inc. was founded in 1987 and incorporated in 1992. The BBB established a profile page for CADLE CO. in 1989, and CADLE CO. has been a BBB-accredited business since 2003. The BBB lists CADLE CO. as a collection agency and loan servicing and investment security company. Buzzfile estimates CADLE CO.’s annual revenue at $38 million and the size of its headquarters staff at 136 employees.
The CADLE CO. website provides very little information about its business practices, the types of businesses for whom it collects debts, or its regulatory compliance policies. The website has a very unprofessional and unfinished appearance, with formatting and languageerrors.
The home page contains four large, prominent, centrally located buttons labeled “Online Payment”; “Phone Payment”; “ACH Payment”; and “Mail Payment.” The Phone Payment button responds as a clickable link if the cursor is aimed at a specific spot on the button. The other three buttons do not appear to be actively hyperlinked. However, the menu at the top of the page provides the same options, and all of those links function properly. The top menu also includes a “Request Info” link.
The four payment links lead to pages that provide mailing addresses, phone numbers, and directions for preparing payments to CADLE CO.. The Online Payment link provides a lengthy legal disclaimer and a link to a third-party online payment portal for authorizing electronic bank deposits. All of these pages provide a “mini-Miranda” identifying CADLE CO. as a debt collector, but they do not provide any additional information about the company. The Request Info page also self-identifies CADLE CO. as a debt collector and provides a web-based contact form for account-specific inquires.
CADLE CO. cites certification with the Receivables Management Association (RMA). RMA “is the nonprofit trade association that represents more than 550 companies that support the purchase, sale, and collection of performing and nonperforming receivables on the secondary market.” However, the CADLE CO. website does not provide any information about its regulatory compliance polices, or any links or references to consumer protection resources, laws, or enforcement agencies.

It is illegal for a debt collector to make empty threats to sue you or garnish your wages. It is also unlikely Cadle Co. 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 The Cadle Company?
Absolutely. Here are some Sample Complaints
In March 2007, in the Appeals Court for the 57th Judicial District Court in Texas, a judge issued a Memorandum Opinion in a case alleging The Cadle Company had imposed an illegal writ of garnishment in its effort to collect a debt. In this case, the plaintiff had originally “borrowed money for a business… The loan was secured by a first lien on certain real estate… Through a series of transactions, CADLE CO.… was assigned the loan and the lien. In October of 1993,” the plaintiff“agreed to a Consent Judgment in favor of CADLE CO., representing the amount outstanding on the loan.” Subsequently, and “for the next four years, CADLE CO. regularly contacted the plaintiff to determine if he had any non-exempt assets that could be used to satisfy the judgment.” In 1997, a CADLE CO. representative proposed a final settlement of the financial obligation that would “settle and release all claims relating to the judgment if the plaintiff would (1) satisfactorily resolve the tax lien on the real estate property; and then (2) sell the property with all of the remaining proceeds going to CADLE CO..” CADLE CO. dictated a letter “for the plaintiff to send to the IRS to negotiate a release of the tax lien, and the IRS negotiated the tax lien to an amount that was acceptable to CADLE CO..” Later in 1997, CADLE CO. “sent a letter to the title company acknowledging the proceeds from the sale of the… property would be approximately $9,000.00, and that “of that amount, CADLE CO. would release the mortgage for $7,500.00, leaving $1,500.00 for the IRS.” After the sale, “the title company sent a letter to” CADLE CO. that stated they had “enclosed a… check… in the amount of $7,500.00 for payment in full,” and instructing CADLE CO.“to return the original Release of Lien to the title company… CADLE CO. endorsed and deposited the check.”
Subsequently, in 2003, the plaintiff received a business card from the county sheriff. He contacted the sheriff “and was advised that the deputy was trying to collect on a judgment in favor of The Cadle Company. The plaintiff informed the deputy that the matter had been settled, …but the record contained a writ of execution for garnishment, which was the basis for the deputy contacting” the plaintiff. Later that year, CADLE CO. sent the plaintiff a collection letter. The plaintiff told CADLE CO. that the matter had already been settled. However, the CADLE CO. representative he spoke with insisted it had not been settled, and that CADLE CO. intended to seize his assets. Three years later, the plaintiff tried to withdraw money from his bank account, but “the transaction was rejected.” The plaintiff contacted his bank and was “advised that the account was frozen by a writ of garnishment.” The plaintiff “filed an emergency motion to dissolve the writ of garnishment. After a hearing, the trial court granted the motion and dissolved the writ of garnishment.”
At the 2007 appeals hearing, attorneys for The Cadle Company attempted to argue that the writ of garnishment to enforce their judgement should be reinstated. The court disagreed, stating the CADLE CO. had failed to carry the burden of proof showing the judgement had not already been satisfied. The court upheld the previous decision, and the writ of garnishment was dissolved.
The Cadle Company 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.
