It is illegal for a debt collector to threaten to sue you or garnish your wages. It is also unlikely RA Rogers Inc 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 against R.A. Rogers, Inc.
Complaints against RA Rogers commonly cite problems resulting from disputes about debt verification, the accuracy of information reported to the credit reporting agencies, and abusive customer service representatives. In March 2018, a complainant indicated he had been contacted by RAR regarding a debt they had purchased from another collection agency. According to the complainant, he “received a lot of phone calls… with threats, and that the customer service is horrible.” During calls, when the complainant asked to speak to a supervisor, the RAR representatives allegedly replied that he was “already speaking to a supervisor.” The complainant indicated that although he does not owe them any money, he has been “getting harassed all day long.” In response, RA Rogers indicated they had closed and returned the account in February 2018 and had not performed any collection activity on the account in question since November 2015.
In May 2017, a complainant indicated that RA Rogers had “continued to report an account on…his…credit report that they had not validated.” The complainant indicated that he had “asked this company multiple times for the validating information that they have been using to verify this account to the credit bureaus and they have failed to provide…that information.” The complainant alleged that RAR is “violating…his rights under the FCRA that states that any accounts that cannot be verified must be promptly deleted.” He also complained that the “negative account is hurting…his credit score and that he wants it removed immediately.” The complainant stated that RAR is not “licensed to collect in the state of Maryland so… he is unsure…why they feel it is ok… to continue to report an unverified account to…his credit report.” He concluded by requesting that RA Rogers “cease all collection activity and remove the account from his Equifax credit file immediately.” In response, RAR indicated that they had “received a fax from the consumer stating that …he disputed the debt.” They indicated further that “validation of the debt was mailed… via USPS to the address listed in the complaint…and included a signed application from…the client and a transaction summary validating the balance.”
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.
