Can you help me file a No Fee Lawsuit against Williams Rush & Associates LLC?

Absolutely. Here are some Sample Cases against Williams, Rush & Associates, LLC

Complaints against Williams, Rush & Associates often cite problem resulting from efforts to collect delinquent student loans. In September 2016, a complainant indicated she had been receiving calls from WRA regarding a delinquent student loan that belonged to her daughter. The complainant indicated that her daughter is an adult who had expressed to her mother that she had made every effort to work with Williams, Rush & Associates, but that WRA appears interested only in harassing and intimidating her daughter into paying the debt. The complainant alleged that the calls she was receiving were part of that harassment and represented an effort to attempt to influence her daughter by calling her. The complainant further alleged that the educational institute did her daughter a disservice, and that her daughter “is handling it better than she would, because she probably would have filed a lawsuit” against the institute. The complainant indicated that both she and her daughter had repeatedly asked WRA to stop calling the complainant, but Williams, Rush & Associates representatives continue to leave messages. She indicated further that she doesn’t “have time to play games” and wants to be excluded “from whatever it is that they need to do. If WRA feels they… need to take collections a step further, so be it, but…the complainant’s daughter does not involve the complainant in her affairs unless necessary and obviously she doesn’t feel that the complainant needs to be involved in this…The complainant didn’t co-sign or sign a promissory note on any contract with” the educational institute. She concluded her complaint by stating that if WRA wants “to contact the complainant’s daughter please call her and maybe… try to be a little more understanding of people’s situations and willing to work with them for a resolution rather than harassing and demanding what they can’t pay.”

In response, Williams, Rush & Associates indicated that they “reached out to assure the complainant that they have removed her phone number as a contact number. The reason she was receiving the calls is that her daughter listed her as a point of contact and listed her phone number on the application for the student loan. Williams, Rush & Associates apologized for any inconvenience this may have caused the consumer.”

Williams Rush & Associates 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.

    Student loans are still on hold until august 2023. For the last few years I haven’t seen my student debt go either up or down… now all of a sudden there’s magically an account in collections by William rush & associate, someone I’ve never heard of for an additional $1766. I don’t know of any other student loans, grants or interest put on my original student loans that have been on pause since Covid. Never received a letter, never received phone calls, or emails. I have 0 documentation or information on what this is. However it is making my credit sink dramatically.

    I just recently received a notification from my credit alerts that I owe a “ghost debt” in an amount of approximately $4800, to William Rush and Associates.

    This debt is ABSOLUTELY BOGUS for several reasons which are listed as follows…

    #It attempts to piggy-back off a debt that was CHARGED-OFF by BHFC Financial over 2 years ago, for an amount of approximately $1,800.
    #That account was SETTLED by returning the asset
    #That account was NO LONGER PURSUED FOR PRINCIPLE OR INTEREST after being contacted by my attorney during that time.
    #My entire credit report history from then till now bears that account was charged off and also shows that there were no further actions or pursuit of debt or interest
    #As of this month, my report appears as if I opened a new account on September 1st of this year with BHFC for the same account from over 2 years ago!!!!

    Absolutely not, I am hearing up for individual action, and class action, as well as drawing up a new proposal to be presented possibly to legislators and congress barring creditors, third party credit agents, and credit bureaus from pursuing and publishing debts that consist of FRAUDULENT INTEREST and FRAUDULENT CHARGES.
