The harassing company pays our fees.
Debt Recovery Solutions can also be a debt purchaser, and has been certified with DBA International since February 2016. Reportedly, the bureau bids aggressively on high volume, aged accounts. Debt buying involves purchasing considerable quantities of billed accounts for a small portion of the debt owed with the intent of collecting the whole amount. Both contingency collection and debt purchasing leave the business highly motivated to pursue collections with the “persistent” attempts the agency describes. The company seems to have a very low BBB Score.
As of March 2017, the Better Business Bureau reported 191 closed Debt Recovery Solutions complaints over the previous few decades, including 69 closed DRS complaints over the past 12 months. The BBB provides DRS a B evaluation. Additionally, Justia lists eight DRS complaints filed in federal court in the past year alleging violations of the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act. Moreover, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) lists 135 closed DRS complaints for 2016.

It is illegal for a debt collector to threaten to sue you or garnish your wages. It is also unlikely DRS 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’s an example of a case filed federal court.
In 2010, a judge in U.S. District Court, Eastern District of New York, refused Debt Recovery Solutions’ motion to dismiss Puglisi v. Debt Recovery Solutions for alleged violations of the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act and the Electronic Funds Transfer Act. According to the judge’s decision, the customer supposedly owed a debt to Verizon and agreed to a payment plan where DRS would draw two payments from his bank accounts on specified days. The consumer requested that the initial withdrawal be delayed by one week, but alleges that DRS withdrew the cash anyway, causing insufficient funds fees to be evaluated. The customer then lost his job and requested the debt collection agency if he could negotiate the time of the next withdrawal. He explained that he was told that they would not touch his accounts, but withdrew the cash anyhow. The judge rejected the debt collection agency’s argument that the customer did not state a claim under the FDCPA, in addition to its other arguments, and allowed the case to proceed.
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.
