Is Asset Recovery Solutions a scam?
They’re legit. According to the Better Business Bureau (BBB), Asset Recovery Solutions LLC is a legitimate debt collection agency based in 2009 in Des Plaines, Illinois. This company purchases and collects a huge array of unsecured consumer debt, such as student loans, automotive debt, retail debt, and credit card debt. The corporation’s CEO is a former executive at Sallie Mae. Asset Recovery Solutions doesn’t have any identifying features. It charges its external clients based on contingency, so it doesn’t collect any fee unless it collects debt. Along with collecting on behalf of other businesses, ARS buys debt to accumulate. Debt buyers typically purchase charged off debt for pennies on the dollar, and rely on collecting enough to earn a profit. Its third party debt collection activities revolve around using technology to monitor and follow up accounts, and it utilizes skip traces, robocalls, and letter string to contact customers.

Can Asset Recovery Solutions 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 ARS 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 Asset Recovery Solutions?
Absolutely. Here is a Sample Case Filed in Federal Court
In 2016, a judge in U.S. District Court, Northern District of California, denied in part and granted in part Asset Recovery Solutions’ motion to dismiss Datta vs. Asset Recovery Solutions for alleged violations of the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act and California’s Rosenthal Fair Debt Collection Practices Act. According to the judge’s decision, the customer asserts that Asset Recovery Solutions delivered her a letter in a window envelope which disclosed her account number and a barcode containing her address and account number, and that this was a violation of the FDCPA. She also claimed that the debt collection agency put its name on the outside envelope in violation of the FDCPA. The judge ruled that the barcode falls within the “benign language exemption” determined by the courts, but that Asset Recovery Solutions’ name on the envelope may or might not be a breach. The judge ruled that the case could proceed on that question.
Asset Recovery Solutions 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.
