It is illegal for a debt collector to threaten to sue you or garnish your wages. It is also unlikely TPS 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
Complaints against Trojan Professional Services commonly cite problems resulting from attempts to collect disputed debts. In December 2015, a complainant indicated that a delinquency on her credit report resulted from dental services that were covered by dental insurance. According to the complainant, the dental services in question were provided to the complainant’s adult daughter in 2013. When the complainant contacted the dental provider to find out why they had sent the bill for the dental services to collections, they told her that “they had attempted several times to submit a claim for payment… but were unable because the insurance denied the claim.” Allegedly, the complainant’s dental insurance provider “had mistakenly removed her daughter as an individual covered… under her family’s plan when she was transferred from an active employee to a retiree,” and her daughter “was therefore not insured at the time she received service.” The complainant contacted her insurance company and “had this insurance issue corrected by contacting her Plan Administrator.” Allegedly, the insurance company had not been “aware of her lack of medical and dental coverage, so they immediately adjusted their oversight, and coverage for her daughter was reinstated.” Subsequently, “once the dental insurance… was reinstated, they were able to successfully resubmit claims for services provided…and disbursed funds for services rendered.” As a result, the complainant confirmed that the overdue balance had been paid, and that TPS’s collection efforts were no longer necessary. The complainant requested that TPS remove the negative information from her credit report.
In its response, Trojan Professional Services indicated that they did “not concur with the recitation of the events concerning this account. Nevertheless, they sent instructions to Experian, Equifax, and Transunion requesting that they each delete the subject account.”
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.

“As we discussed on the phone earlier today, this settlement is perfectly okay to me. I need to thank you and all of your cohorts at Lemberg Law to get a project handled so professionally.

“I received outstanding professionalism from the own staff. I had a horrible experience when trying to solve a debt. 1 debt collector associate said she would speak to the prosecutor’s office and another representative told me that when I called the office back he would call the police and have me arrested. I had been insulted, mocked, and threatened, and feared that the police would appear at my door any given moment.”
“I just wanted to let you know we received the check from your office on now and I wanted to take some time to inform you that we really appreciate all of your efforts in this matter.”
