The harassing company pays our fees.
Diversified Adjustment Service Inc is a debt collection agency based in Minneapolis, MN and founded in 1981. It services all industries and all kinds of businesses — from small companies to Fortune 500 enterprises. They use tactics like pre-collect demand letters, credit bureau reporting, and skip tracing.
Diversified Adjustment Service is a legitimate debt collection agency with a long history of harassing consumers over debt. They use skip-tracing tools to collect which aren’t available to the general public, such as post office records, voting records, automobile records, business licenses, property records, and lots of others.
The company has created a proprietary library of skip-tracing databases which may be shared with collectors throughout their intranet. These libraries include college admissions advice, which offers access to a student’s name, contact info, as well as their parents’ address and telephone number.
As of April 2017, the Better Business Bureau reported 69 closed Diversified Adjustment Service complaints over the previous few decades, including 19 closed complaints over the past 12 months. The BBB provides Diversified Adjustment Service a B evaluation. Additionally, Justia lists 14 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 60 closed complaints for 2016.

It is illegal for a debt collector to threaten to sue you or garnish your wages. It is also unlikely Diversified 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!

Absolutely. Here is a Sample Case Filed in Federal Court against Diversified Adjustment Service
In 2011, a judge in U.S. District Court, Northern District of Illinois, refused Diversified Adjustment Service’s motion to dismiss D.G. v. Diversified Adjustment Service for alleged violations of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act. According to the judge’s decision, a minor child alleged that Diversified Adjustment Service robocalled his mobile phone in an attempt to collect a debt from somebody named Chivette. The judge rejected the debt collection agency’s argument that the unintended recipient of a robocall does not have standing to sue under the TCPA, and its argument that it would be hard to need to prove they had approval from the intended recipients of each robocall. The judge allowed the case to proceed.
Here are some past Press Releases of Lawsuits Brought On By Lemberg Law Against Diversified Adjustment Service
May 15, 2017. On behalf of our client, Lemberg Law recently filed a complaint in U.S. District Court, Northern District of New York. The case, against Diversified Adjustment Service, charges the company with violating federal law and state law. It asks for $500 to $1,500 per call in Telephone Consumer Protection Act statutory damages, $1,000 in Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) statutory damages, plus other relief.
Debt collection calls are nerve-wracking. They’re even more irritating when a debt collector is calling about a debt someone you know owes. Our client says that Diversified Adjustment Service start calling her about a debt that her boyfriend owed. She was in no way responsible for the repayment of the debt, but Diversified Adjustment Service robocalled her cell phone anyway. She knew it was a robocall because, when she answered the phone, she heard a prerecorded message from Diversified Adjustment Service. On several different occasions, our client spoke with the debt collection agency and requested that the calls call stop. Nevertheless, Diversified Adjustment Service continued to call her.
The lawsuit charges that Diversified Adjustment Service violated the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA) by robocalling our client’s cell phone without his consent. The lawsuit also charges that Diversified Adjustment Service violated the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) by engaging in harassing behavior and by using unfair and unconscionable means to collect a debt. It also charges Diversified Adjustment Service violating New York’s General Business Law by conducting deceptive acts and practices.
Understanding Your Debt Collection Rights
In case you were contacted by a debt collector, it’s important that you know your rights. The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) is a law which was created for customers to use the ability of the courts to prevent harassment and other abusive debt collection practices. The FDCPA prohibits debt collectors from calling consumers if they understand the consumer is represented by a lawyer. This means that if you’re represented by a lawyer in your debt issues, and you’ve clarified this to a debt collector, then they need to no longer be calling you. The FDCPA requires that the debt collectors contact your lawyer directly. But if you would rather take care of the debt collectors right, you can agree to let debt collectors to speak with you.
Under the FDCPA, violations of the law allow customers to regain up to $1,000 in statutory damages, in addition to attorney fees and court costs. You don’t have to allow creditors get away with violent behaviour.
