Actual Complaints Listed on the BBB website
“I contacted Transworld Systems regarding a fraud accounts that they are reporting to me credit i faxed over all information regarding the account and they company keeps telling me they never got the fax or that they are waiting for a validation letter from the original creditor i asked why they are requesting that when this account is fraud. This company has outsource their phone calls and nobody wants to transfer me to a supervisor so they can help me with my issue”
“I get calls from this company nearly every day and have for well over a year. They call from a bunch of different numbers, so I can’t even keep up with the blocks. They leave me messages directed toward someone else (not my name). I’ve called them back (or answered) multiple times and have told them they have the wrong number, please stop calling, but the calls continue. Very frustrating and I would like to see some sort of solution”
“These people constantly phone my home. One of them is an impossible fake debt for a woman they ask for, who has been dead for several years, and hence even if it was genuine is not only outside the statute of limitations. However no such debt was ever presented at her probate which was finalized by a Houston Judge. I am ignoring their threats completely. If it continues, I will take legal action. They also call for my wife, on a debt which is outside the statue of limitations
“When they are acting on behalf of the Department of Education, be sure to get both recorded and written documentation of EACH AND EVERY transaction/talk/discussion you have with them. Be sure you have clear and unambiguous understanding with the agent you speak with, and again make sure your documentation is clear and explicit, including recorded conversations. They’re recording you “for quality and training purposes” so you have every right to record them for “quality and accuracy in what they say” for when and if you need legal assistance in dealing with them. Don’t trust anything that is not in clear concise writing from them, and save all email communications from them. And for those of you who have non-educational debt they’re trying to collect, same thing, document with audio and written notes/statements everything you do with them. They will go back on their word in a New York pico-second, and you will have to catch them at it. Also if you’re not sure of whether or not the bill is indeed yours, THEY MUST PROVIDE AT THEIR EXPENSE, a letter explaining the origin of the debt. You would be wise to settle with the original creditor first. Also, get their physical address or an email you can write to in order to have them stop communicating with you except by US Mail. I strongly suggest the physical address and mailing that request with a Certified Return Receipt to a specified person. That way once the green card comes back and they call you…they’re in violation of the Fair Credit Reporting Act. You have signed proof for your lawyer. Long story short, don’t be afraid to ask them to validate your debt, don’t take any settlement agreement unless it is in writing, document every single transaction with them.”

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

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.
