Sued By A Debt Collector
Been Sued By A Debt Buyer (Debt Collector) In Alabama? Read About How Most Of These Suits Are Bogus….
Being sued by a debt collector, called a debt buyer in Alabama, is not a fun experience. But, it can have a positive outcome because you will have a judge deciding whether this collector actually has the right to sue you.
Most collectors do not.
And they know it.
But they hope you won’t know it.
That’s why they hate us for putting information on the internet about their dirty little secret — they often cannot or will not prove they have any right to a judgment against you.
Armed with the knowledge that there is hope — you may can be successful in the collection lawsuit filed against you — we hope this encourages you to explore your options and to take the appropriate action.
And, often, the debt collectors violate the laws — including the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act and the Fair Credit Reporting Act — which may allow you the right to sue the collector.
