Woman Stops Wage Garnishment after Debt Collector Uses Out-Dated Address

When a woman living in the suburbs of Cleveland suddenly saw her wages garnished, she understandably became very concerned. After learning that a debt collector had filed a lawsuit against her and was awarded a judgment without even knowing about it, she contacted the Cleveland debt collection attorneys with Luftman, Heck & Associates.

We examined her situation and quickly learned that the collection agency in question had used an outdated address to file their suit. In what was either an example of careless record keeping or an attempt to rush through a judgment without the woman being properly advised, this was a serious violation of the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act. By pointing out the company’s actions, the attorneys with LHA could stop the wage garnishment and obtained a dismissal of the debt collector’s original lawsuit.
