Can Weber & Olcese 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 Weber Olcese 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 Weber & Olcese?

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

One sample cases against Weber & Olcese indicates why it may be so difficult to find information about the performance of a company of this size, and that has been in business for 21 years. In 2011 in United States District Court in the Eastern District of Michigan, Southern Division, plaintiff Shanel Moore filed a complaint against Jeffrey Weber, Michael Olcese, and the Law Firm of Weber & Olcese, P.L.C., alleging improper actions on the part of “Robert Reznick and/or his company Due Process of Michigan, Inc. and/or its associates during the execution of an order to seize property.” According to the Judge’s Memorandum and Order Granting Defendant’s Motion for Summary Judgement, Weber & Olcese obtained a default judgement against the plaintiff in the amount of $4,487.67 on behalf of Credit Acceptance Corporation. Again according to the Memorandum, Michigan law allows licensed court officers to seize the property of debtors to satisfy a judgement, and Weber & Olcese have a history of employing Robert Reznick and Due Process of Michigan when they “resort to actual execution on a judgement instead of settlement.” Acting on the judgement against the plaintiff, Weber & Olcese submitted to the 37th District Court in Warren, MI a request for an order to seize “personal property…includ[ing], but not limited to…money, wherever located.” After the order was approved, Weber & Olcese assigned it to Reznick, and on August 2, 2007, the plaintiff alleges that two men who “said they were Deputy Sheriffs and ‘in representation of Rob Reznick’” came to her apartment in Warren. One of the men was later identified as an employee of Due Process of Michigan. The judge’s memorandum indicates the plaintiff testified that the men told her to “come up with $2,500 or they were going to seize her property.”

Plaintiff testimony indicates two more men showed up, did not identify themselves and did not speak to the plaintiff. After two hours, the plaintiff was able to “get $1,500 wired to her from her mother… [and was required] to sign an agreement to make monthly $100 payments.” After the incident, the plaintiff filed a multi-count complaint. The judge’s memorandum dismisses the plaintiff’s complaint in its entirety citing a lack of evidence that Weber & Olcese, Robert Reznick, and Due Process of Michigan had either conspired to or in fact violated the plaintiff’s civil rights. The prevailing legal argument in this case may technically disprove the plaintiff’s claims; however, the FDCPA was enacted to prevent precisely the kind of abusive debt collection practices this case examined. Although Weber & Olcese appear to have found a way around federal laws by acting on Michigan state law, their conduct in this case appears to violate the spirit of the FDCPA, an examination of which is conspicuously absent throughout the discussion.

Press Releases of Lawsuits Brought On By Lemberg Law Against Weber & Olcese, P.L.C.

September 29, 2015. On September 21, 2015, the U.S. District Court, Western District of Michigan, gave preliminary approval of a class action settlement in Whitford vs. Weber & Olcese (No. 1:15-cv-400). The court also preliminarily certified the following settlement class:

All persons with Michigan addresses to whom Weber & Olcese, P.L.C. mailed an initial debt collection communication that stated: “If you notify this firm within thirty (30) days after your receipt of this letter, that the debt or any portion thereof, is disputed, we will obtain verification of the debt or a copy of the judgment, if any, and mail a copy of such verification or judgment to you,” between April 15, 2014 and August 26, 2015, in connection with the collection of a consumer debt on behalf of Bank of America, N.A.

The hearing regarding final settlement will be held on January 11, 2016.

Weber & Olcese 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.

    Weber and olcese filed a lien on my house in a county I don’t even live in- and also my county or so they said on the court documents. Can they even lien a house in a county I don’t own a home or live in ?

  • Iridescent

    They are harassing my son and it’s really annoying me! They have no legal right because my son never did business with them. They are trying to collect on something they bought from another company! They have darkened the wrong doorstep! Let’s sue em NOW!!!

  • Carley

    I am in the 2nd renewal of a 10 year judgments, going on19 years with Weber & Olcese from an old Providian credit card account, and Providian is no longer in business since 2005. They have levied one bank account and the bank froze my account into perpetuity, and eventually sent them the funds and closed my account. And now they are attempting to levy my other bank account. The debt is for $20K and I am unable to pay it at this time. The current judgment will expire in June 2024. The first ten years of this judgment prevented me from obtaining employment since employers look at your credit, so it did the exact opposite of what it was intended to do. I am now close to retirement and this judgment has prevented me from creating any substantial gains in order to look forward to a healthy and happy retirement. I just wish they would go away and I’m also interested to join the class action lawsuit if there is one.

  • Lacey m

    Just got my taxes garnished for a vehicle I leased over 12 years ago and never received a letter or court order for it at all!!

  • Rosanne

    These people are arrogant , evil & sneaky. They garnished 25% of my boyfriend’s salary without a warning during this pandemic. He filed for bankruptcy in 2019 so they had no right to do this. Let me know if anyone wants to do a class action lawsuit against them. My boyfriend’s attorney will sue them as well.

  • Abdullah A

    I have been harassed by Weber & Olcese PLC for the last couple of months. They kept calling me at work from an “anonymous” number. When I did not pick up the phone, they called the main office and lied to customer service by saying they tried to leave a voicemail but my inbox was full. My inbox was not full. They just did not want to leave a message. Also, I kept getting phone calls on my cell from a private number.

  • Larry C

    I have been to court concerning this matter. I draw nothing but disability. I tried to get Legal Aid to help me file bankruptcy. They said that all I had to do is say that I have no money. This system sucks. Stop harassing me please. I barely make it as it is.

  • Libra

    Any update on the class action suit? I am pursuing them as well.

  • Belinda

    They are frauds! Unbeknownst to me, in between my move, they’d filed something in court without notifying me- THEN (still unaware this had gone to court as I had paid them & couldn’t get a hold of anyone since)- they seized my bank account and I got a court judgement, which is dated BEFORE they agreed on payment plan (again, the 2nd payment, I was unable to reach anyone by phone to make and am not sending $100 checks-esp when the $100 I paid them was LEFT OUT of their court docs- they also omitted the agreement we had made between these dates and instead, in court docs, say “could not reach defendant” I HAVE THE LETTER TO DISPROVE WHAT THE JUDGE BASED HER FACTS ON AND THEY OMMITTED OUR AGREEMENT, SO JUDGE RULED IN THEIR FAVOR AND THEY REFUSE TO RELEASE MY BANK ACCOUNT. I’m by FAR a litigious person and just trying to get a hold of these assholes has wasted enough of my time- but knowing they did me wrong and having it confirmed by others (along with the suits already against them)- I am going to my district court and hoping they will look over the documents and reverse the judgement. Do not deal with these people- Ignore them like they will you after you attempt to make good

  • Donna F

    Been paying them since January. Called a couple time to let them know i can’t make the whole payment and I still make a part payment. They say that its not acceptable. Trying to get my payments reduced because I cant afford 100 a month. The payments that I have made doesn’t seem to be making a difference in the amount i still owe. Also asked for a breakdown of what i owe and never sent me anything.

  • Stephanie S

    They are skum who have taken money from me, drained my bank accounts even though we had a payment agreement that I have been faithful to.

    I need information about this class action suit against Weber and Oclese who has been garnishing my paycheck since March 2016 for an old debt. I have tried calling my rep for the account and have offered three settlements and they have all been refused. I don’t know what to do anymore. I think I need to get an attorney. These are wicked people.

    Their practices are still continuing. I recently received the exact same type of letter. How can I get more information?

    • Patricia

      > I purchased a used car in 2010. I got sick and unable to pay monthly note to original creditor. Webber and Olcese took over and I asked for a reduction in payment that was granted. My income is SSDA and was filed a judgement against me. The balance never goes down and we’re talking about a car over 10 years old. I’ve been in court three times for this and still owe over $5000. The car hasn’t been driven in 3 years.
