Can Machol & Johannes 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 Machol & Johannes 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.

Machol & Johannes Calling You?

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.

    I have received 2 summons from Machol and Joannes they represent that they are the attorneys for these credit card companies. I currently live in NM these credit cards are from when I lived in Ca. I believe that Machol and Joannes have purchased these and other debts and are misrepresenting their affliation as being the lawyer for the companies. I believe they are violating the Fair Debt Collections Act by deceit. I go to court on one Aug 8th and just received the other summons this past Friday. I know they hope a person does not respond and that they win by default and then receive an order of garnishment or lien. It is far fetched to believe they could be the direct counsel of so many different companies.
