Can Direct Recovery Associates Sue Me or Garnish My Wages?

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

Understand your debt collection rights

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.

Seek legal assistance to find the relief you may be entitled to if you are having difficulty resolving disputes with a debt collection agency.

    Hi I’ve been harassed on and off for about 4 years from what I think is this company. Here is my story: when I lived in CT, remarkably, TWO seemingly different collection agencies got my phone number mixed up with other people – i.e. I received a plethora of calls and voicemails (human and automated) from collection agencies seeking payment and offering financing options for other people (specifically “Owen Briggs” and “Nicholas Cornell”) – not me! I don’t owe any money to anybody and I never have (no collection agencies have my NAME, but they apparently have my NUMBER). This harassment died down considerably, but has always resurfaced from time to time. Yesterday, I received my first ever text (as per the usual, alerting me of important private matters for NICHOLAS CORNELL) from these people and it included a web address ( and phone number(612-286-1231). They are always doing very sketchy, half-assed things that seem like total phishing scams, despite my previous efforts to get them to drop my number and explain their mistake and how they might be able to fix it. Well, I realized today, looking at the text, that I finally know the name of this flim-flam operation, so I googled them and it led me here. I have many voicemails from them over the years that are still saved on my phone. This company is very mischievous, suspicious, and weird! What they’ve done to me over the years should be illegal.
