Can Windham Professionals 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 WPI 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.

Can you help me file a No Fee Lawsuit against Windham Professionals Inc?

Absolutely. Here are some Sample Cases against WPI

In November 2010, in United States District Court for the District of Arizona, a judge issued an Order in the matter of a complaint filed against Windham Professionals for violations of the Fair Debt Collections Practices Act (FDCPA). The initial complaint was filed several months earlier and alleged that Windham collection agents had violated the FDCPA’s provisions against taking action that could not be legally taken, or threatening to take action that was not actually intended, when they threatened to garnish the plaintiff’s wages. In addition, although the plaintiff had notified WPI that she could not receive calls at work, Windham Professionals representatives continued to call her there, which is also a violation of the FDCPA. In July 2010, the plaintiff accepted an offer of judgment in the amount of $1,001.00, the maximum statutory amount. The judgement stated in part:

“Plaintiff’s costs and reasonable attorney’s fees now accrued are to be added to the judgment as against Windham Professionals; said fees and costs shall be as are agreed to between counsel for the parties, or if they are unable to agree, as determined by the Court upon motion.”

The November hearing was designed to determine the amount of attorney fees and court costs to be awarded to the plaintiff. The plaintiff requested $3,764.00, plus an additional $418.00 in post-hearing court costs and $400 in fees. WP representatives objected that some of the attorney fees were incurred after the judgment was issued; that some of the fees were clerical in nature and therefore not recoverable; that the plaintiff cannot request fees from an attorney licensed in Arizona; and that the plaintiff’s calculation of hours spent was excessive. Ultimately, the judge granted WPI’s objections regarding post-judgement fees, the clerical fees, and the calculation of hours. The court dismissed Windham Professionals objection that the attorney licensed in Arizona was disqualified, and granted the plaintiff the costs of attorney fees, lessened by 10%, for a total of $2,557.82 plus the additional $400 in costs originally awarded.

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.

    Windham has sent a garnishment request for a federal education grant not a loan. The employer has sent a notice that they will take 15% of my income. I have talked to the department of education this agency is not approved to collect on anything. Plus this was a Pell grant not a loan. How do I stop this garnishment from happening right away. i get paid weekly and I believe my employer will take my wages this week for this debt with does not seem legitimate.

    I cancelled my insurance with another company and have received numerous calls from these “professionals.” I wrote a letter to the insurance company telling them what date we cancelled with them and they said that yes we did cancel. Fast forward a month later and we get this detailed account on what we owed from Windham. We didn’t not use any of the services from the first insurance company that month because we cancelled. Why can’t the insurance people who put Windham on us in the first place tell them that we do not owe the money? Now we have to deal with these “professionals” and tell them what that other insurance agency told us. When will they quit with the letters and the calls? I have had it with these idiots.
