Debt Collection Abuse. Never, ever let a rogue debt collector, collection lawyer, collection law firm or bad debt buyer to include false, out-dated (tradelines beyond the legal statute of limitations for enforcement), threaten you with criminal arrest, harass you or your family, or attempt to force you to pay a debt that they know is beyond the Illinois Statute of Limitations for legal enforcement and credit reporting! During the past seven (7) years, the debt collection industry (and bad debt buyers) has exploded. Many forge around purchasing old debt portfolios from credit card companies (some are defunct) old cell phone accounts, just to name a few. If you feel that you have been victimized by a debt collector or bad debt buyer, please contact this office for a consultation.
