The Better Business Bureau (BBB) provides a very limited amount of information about Omega Receivable Management Services under the Business Information tab of its profile page, stating only that ORMS is a collection agency and the BBB opened its file in 2013.
According to its website, ORMS is “a leading provider of strategic contact campaigns, loan-servicing, third-party receivables purchasing[,] and collections solutions.” ORMS “relies on innovative tools to drive a higher standard in how individuals will be treated when interacting with an accounts receivable organization” and “offers a proven strategy that focuses on the relationship, the brand[,] and the power of future business.”
Omega RMS offers collections and accounts receivable management services to clients in education, healthcare, consumer products, and fee-based membership clubs.

It is illegal for a debt collector to threaten to sue you or garnish your wages. It is also unlikely OmegaRMS 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 are some Sample Cases filed in Federal Court
Details of complaints on Omega RMS’ BBB profile page are unavailable. Complaints on the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) website cite problems resulting from inaccurate reports to the credit reporting agencies and abusive and harassing phone calls.
In August 2017, a complainant indicated that an Omega RMS representative had contacted her and “demanded to know” if she was the individual he was looking for. The ORMS representative allegedly did not identify himself or his company, then “demanded in a loud, abusive voice that [the complainant] confirm [her] address.” The complainant asked the representative to identify himself and the reason for his call, and he allegedly responded by stating his name, then telling the complainant that, “you have to confirm your address so that I can tell you about a serious situation you are involved in.” When the complainant indicated that she declined to “confirm any information…[without] knowing what he was calling about,” he allegedly threatened the complainant, telling her that “something more serious would happen.” The complainant hung up, and the representative called back, and allegedly used a “threatening tone” to ask the complainant, “Is this the way you are going to handle this serious situation?” The complainant explained again that that she “would not share information with him and in fact was going to call the police if he called again.” The complainant indicated further that she had “no credit issues and had absolutely no idea why he was calling me.” The phone call left her distraught and concerned that the caller may be a predator. Omega RMS’ response to the complaint indicated that the company “believes the complaint is the result of a misunderstanding.”
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.
