The harassing company pays our fees.
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.

It is illegal for a debt collector to threaten 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.

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 v. 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.
For many people, getting debt collection calls is annoying and painful. This may be especially true once the debt collection agency employs an automatic dialing system. An automated filing system creates robocalls. You know it is a robocall when, by way of instance, you answer the phone and you hear silence or a series of beeps before being transferred to a live person.
Robocalls are economical for the collection agency, but when a debt collector is robocalling your mobile phone and you didn’t provide the original lender or the debt collection agency consent to do so, they might be violating the law.
The law states that, should you tell a debt collection agency to stop contacting you, then they need to do so. To put it differently, you can send them a cease and desist letter, and the letters and calls should stop. While this doesn’t erase the debt, it can prevent you from feeling harassed.
