Got debt? If you’re being harassed by collectors, you may also have a good lawsuit.

Lawyers in the debt business say that as collectors get desperate in these tough times, consumers are increasingly fighting back by suing those who use illegal tactics.

In Houston, U.S. District Court statistics show lawsuits filed against debt collectors under a federal consumer protection law are up 60 percent the first quarter of this year, compared with the same time last year.

“This is definitely increasing in popularity,” said Daniel Ciment, a Houston lawyer who once owned a collection agency and now sues debt collectors. “It’s most likely because debt collectors are hurting.”

Of course, the law works, if you know what it says and use it against law breakers.

hi sexy Daja... hugs

How cool would that be, to sue the collection agency for pain and suffering Plus legal fees, then turn around and pay off your collectible debt with monies you WON in the settlement....

essentially making THEM pay off your debts!!!


\Damn...ONLY in America!
anything after 'but' is bullshit!

people are afraid of the legal costs besides who can afford a lawyer when you cant even pay the leeches. Few are the lawyers who would pay off their fees like that.
