It is illegal for a debt collector to threaten to sue you or garnish your wages. It is also unlikely AMCOL 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.

Absolutely. Here is a brief summary of Cases Filed in Federal Court
According to public record, multiple cases have been filed in Federal Court. In September of 2012 plaintiff Glenn Classey filed suit in the Wisconsin Eastern District Court against Amcol Systems for violations of the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act. According to the plaintiff, a debt collector from the agency refused to identify himself or the purpose of his call and further failed to verify the plaintiff’s debt once it was disputed. Ultimately, the case was resolved via a settlement.
The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) and the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) enforce consumer protection laws. The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) and the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) are two federal laws that help regulate the collections industry. The FDCPA prohibits actions such as threatening to take actions that cannot legally be taken or using false or misleading language to collect a debt.
The FCRA regulates how collection agencies report information to credit reporting agencies.Additional consumer protection laws include the Consumer Financial Protection Act (CFPA) and the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA).
These laws also provide individuals with a means to seek monetary damages in court. For example, the FDCPA allows consumers to recover damages of up to $1,000, plus attorney fees and court costs, in cases proving violations of the FDCPA.
The case above illustrates how understanding your rights and responsibilities under these laws is an important part of holding collection agencies accountable for their actions. Seeking legal assistance can help you resolve a dispute with a collection agency.

What Our Clients are Saying
“I was almost going nuts receiving calls every afternoon from a person using profane language to push me to pay debts I don’t owe. Someone I trust referred me to Lemberg Law, and I don’t regret having contacted them. The attorneys were very kind and always available when I needed them.”
“Thank you for standing with me Lemberg Law. I was so afraid I could lose my job because of a caller who called my job number 4 hours straight back to back. He not only harassed and threatened me but also abused workmates who received the call when I wasn’t around. Since I solicited for your services, I’ve had a peace of mind, and I’m happy because of the few dollars I got as a settlement.””After speaking to one of the partners, and going over the plan of action, I immediately felt I’d chose the perfect company to go to work for me. He was very accommodating in describing what was going to happen. I would strongly recommend Lemberg Law to anybody being hassled by debt collectors.”
“I would recommend your company to anyone. You have the debt collectors off my back, and I will finally see the light at the end of the tunnel. Throughout the entire procedure your employees were courteous and professional. I was blown away by their efficacy also.”
