Can Trojan Professional Services 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 TPS 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 Trojan Professional Services commonly cite problems resulting from attempts to collect disputed debts. In December 2015, a complainant indicated that a delinquency on her credit report resulted from dental services that were covered by dental insurance. According to the complainant, the dental services in question were provided to the complainant’s adult daughter in 2013. When the complainant contacted the dental provider to find out why they had sent the bill for the dental services to collections, they told her that “they had attempted several times to submit a claim for payment… but were unable because the insurance denied the claim.” Allegedly, the complainant’s dental insurance provider “had mistakenly removed her daughter as an individual covered… under her family’s plan when she was transferred from an active employee to a retiree,” and her daughter “was therefore not insured at the time she received service.” The complainant contacted her insurance company and “had this insurance issue corrected by contacting her Plan Administrator.” Allegedly, the insurance company had not been “aware of her lack of medical and dental coverage, so they immediately adjusted their oversight, and coverage for her daughter was reinstated.” Subsequently, “once the dental insurance… was reinstated, they were able to successfully resubmit claims for services provided…and disbursed funds for services rendered.” As a result, the complainant confirmed that the overdue balance had been paid, and that TPS’s collection efforts were no longer necessary. The complainant requested that TPS remove the negative information from her credit report.
In its response, Trojan Professional Services indicated that they did “not concur with the recitation of the events concerning this account. Nevertheless, they sent instructions to Experian, Equifax, and Transunion requesting that they each delete the subject account.”
