Can Affinity Global 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 AffGlo 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 Affinity Global?
Absolutely. Here are some past cases filed in Federal Court
In 2016, a judge in U.S. District Court, Eastern District of New York, granted the Customer’s motion for summary judgment for specific issues in Halberstam vs. Global Credit and Collection Corp.. The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act in this class action case was “if a debt collector, whose phone call to a debtor is answered by a third party, may leave his name and number for the debtor to return the telephone, without disclosing that he’s a debt collector, or if the debt collector must refrain from leaving callback advice and try the call at a later time.” The judge ruled that the debt collector shouldn’t leave callback info. Since the Global Credit and Collection Corp. debt collector had done so, the judge granted summary judgment on this matter.
Affinity Global 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.
