It is illegal for a debt collector to threaten to sue you or garnish your wages. It is also unlikely AmSher 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. Find out if we can help you too today!

Absolutely. Here is a Sample Case Filed in Federal Court
In 2016, a judge in U.S. District Court, Northern District of Alabama, refused AmSher’s motion to keep a class action lawsuit pending a Federal Communications Commission interpretation of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act. In the circumstance, Schwyhart v. AmSher Collection Services, the customer alleged that his mobile phone was robocalled with no consent. The debt collector’s defense was that it was calling to go over another consumer’s mobile phone debt and did not know that the number was reassigned to the plaintiff. However, the FCC had previously suggested that the TCPA applies to the “called party” rather than the “intended recipient” of the telephone. The trade association for debt collectors, ACA International, challenged the FCC’s order, however, the judge ruled that the challenge was not grounds to remain the case, and that it should proceed.
Press Releases of Lawsuits Brought On By Lemberg Law
September 24, 2015. On behalf of our client, Lemberg Law recently filed a complaint in U.S. District Court, District of New Jersey. The case, against AmSher Collection Services, charges the debt collection agency with violating the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act and the Telephone Consumer Protection Act. It asks for $1,000 in statutory FDCPA damages, $500 to $1,500 in statutory TCPA damages, plus other relief.
Spouses share many moments and feelings, but the one thing they shouldn’t have to share is debt collection calls. Our clients are a married couple. The husband allegedly owed a debt to CenturyLink, but our clients say that this agency robocalled both of them on their cell phones, using an automated voice saying the call was to collect a debt from the husband. When the husband spoke to a real person from AmSher Collection Services, he says that he told them to stop calling his cell phone.
The wife doesn’t know how they even got her cell phone number. When the debt collection agency called, she followed the automated prompts to get them to stop calling. Despite our clients’ efforts, our clients continued to get hounded by AmSher.
The lawsuit charges that AmSher violated the FDCPA by engaging in harassing behavior; and by using unfair and unconscionable means to collect a debt. It also charges that this collector violated the TCPA by using an automated telephone dialing system or predictive dialer to call our client’s cell phone without her consent.
The Fair Debt Collections Practices Act (FDCPA) and the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) are enforced by the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) and the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB). The 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). The complaint above illustrates how these laws can be extremely effective tools to hold accountable collection agencies who fail to adhere to their provisions.
These laws also provide individuals 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.
