What is Direct Recovery Associates?

Direct Recovery Associates has been in business for over 20 years. The company is an attorney-based national and worldwide collection agency that specializes in consumer and business accounts. The business works on a contingency basis, meaning that they get paid a percentage of what they collect. The contingency fee is lower on accounts which aren’t long past due. This encourages creditors to turn accounts over to the collection service earlier.

Is Direct Recovery Associates a scam?

They’re legit. Direct Recovery Associates is a legitimate debt collection agency. It keeps two in-house lawyers. They begin collection efforts with telephone calls and demand letters sent by facsimile, mail, or email sent immediately upon obtaining account info. They vow to make contact with the user within a day. Along with such tactics, the bureau also has established relationships with private investigators to find consumers and their resources.

If you’ve suffered from Direct Recovery debt harassment, you do have options. Under the law you can recover up to $1,000 for violations of the FDCPA, and $500 to $1,500 for each cell phone robocall.

Can Direct Recovery Associates 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 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. Find out if we can help you too today!

Direct Recovery Associates 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.

    Who is trying to collect something from me???

  • Nicholas Egersdorf

    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.
