Rubin & Rothman, LLC / Non Caring Thieves

1 Islandia, NY, United States Review updated:

I had a credit card from Capital One with a $500.00 balance from 5 years ago, well I paid it, on time, every month, then one day I recieved a statement that my payment was late and I owed an extra $50.00 for being late, so I called to let them know that it was not late and I had the account info to prove it the lady said my info was wrong and I had to pay it or it would be considered non-payment and forwarded to a collection agency for the full amount of $500.00, well I got mad and hung up.5 years later I start recieving these rude and nasty phone calls from the office of Rubin & Rothman and by now I dont even realize what they are collecting for.First I recieve a summons but it dont say where to go, it said to pay the full amount, but I cant because I have kids to take care of and bills to pay.Two weeks later I go to my bank to make a deposit and notice that it is frozen, now 8 checks that I wrote all bounce and I owe a small fortune in fees and they took all of what money I had out of my account, so I call them to see how I can get my account unfrozen and the woman is very rude to me and the worker at the bank, well I have been paying 10% and I missed one payment because of Christmas so now they are Garnishing my wages, anyway I called to get the amount that I owe and it is over $500 still, that means I have paid triple of what I owed.How can they get away with that?The rudeness, the rip-offs, I work my butt off and think that people like this have no right to do these kind of things to hurt me and my family for $500.00, it doesn't seem right and because they are attorneys they know how to stick it to people and get away with it.

    Debt collection law firm Rubin & Rothman and its attorneys Suby Mathew and Shari L Braverman (nee Shari Kessler) should be disbarred. Rubin & Rothman and its attorneys flagrantly violate the Federal Fair Debt Collection Protection Act, commit perjury and fraud by submitting false notarized statements in which they claim to have served process, misrepresent who the real client is in their lawsuits. Scammers and thieves-it's a travesty that lowlives like this are allowed to give the honest members of the legal profession a bad name.

    Tell me Shari, Suby, and the rest of the attorneys at Rubin & Rothman, are your mothers proud of you? Are they proud that they raided lowlives who think nothing of disregarding the law on lserving legal process? S-C-U-M-B-A-G-S

    FIRST OFF, THEYRE NOT REALLY A "LAW FIRM" THEYRE "SNAKES" THAT GO TO THE COURTS AND "BUY" JUDGMENTS, SO THEY'RE NOT REALLY THE ORIGINAL CREDITOR!
    THEY BUY JUDGMENTS FOR MAYBE 10% OF THE VALUE, ... $1000 JUDGMENT IS
    PURCHASED BY THEM FOR $100. ANYTHING THEY COLLECT IS "THEIRS"!! THATS WHY THEY ACT LIKE THE BOTTOM FEEDERS THEY ARE. tHEIR "COLLECTORS" ARE "NOT" TRAINED WITH THE KNOWLEDGE OF THE "FDCPA" (FAIR DEBT COLLECTION PRACTICES ACT) AND CONTINUE TO VIOLATE THAT SPECIFIC LAW. IM SURE THEY HAVE BEEN SUED THEMSELVES OVER THIS ISSUE. THEY NEED TO BE SHUT DOWN BUT UNFORTUNATELY, THE'LL KEEP PRACTICING, BY BUYING JUDGMENTS BECAUSE THE REPUTATION OF THEIR NAME WONT BRING THEM ANY OTHER BUSINESS!!!

    If people put as much effort into actually paying their bills as they put into forming complaints against law firms that are just engaged to collect outstanding balances, these firms would be out of business. Want to hurt these firms?- Pay your bills, on time and completely. End of Story.

    Rubin and Rothman was harassing me about a debt that I never owed, I have written both the attorney general and the Bar association, people like this have no respect for the law that they claim to represent.If more people start legally standing up to these corrupt and crooked law firms they will one day get the message.You should always have a lawyer of your own, that is the reason I join PPL

    Rubin & Rothman, LLC do not respect the law. they get say they serve papers but they don't. They receive judgments and people can't seem to fight them. They should be disbarred.

    I agree with every one of these comments. I work for an attorney and sometimes have to get a payoff letter from them, even from attorney to attorney they are very rude and inconsiderate and down right nasty. They don't properly serve people, say they do and get judgments. PEOPLE what you need to do is go to the district court and as the defendant you have a right to a copy of all papers in the file if you are pro-se (self represented). You can put in an Order to Show Cause, reopen the case and put the burden of proof of service on them. There is a good chance you can get your case dismissed because they did not do proper service. GOOD LUCK

    I am fighting these people myself currently. they are trying to get me to pay them for a car loan that is current, up to date, and Capital One takes the payment out automatically. So, to the jerk that said to people to pay their debts, Ruben and Rothman are bottom feeding ### that try to get money any way they can. They also illegally ran my credit report. I am assuming that's how they got my information to try this. Fight back. Maybe at some point, the law will really be for the innocent and get rid of these legalized criminals!

    I hired a lawyer to enhance my chances in my fight against the ### who are Rubin Rothman. Not only did they not properly or ever serve me for a 2001 Capital One cc debt, but they also ran my credit without my consent TWICE! At the time they ran it, I had credit freezes on my credit with all 3 credit bureaus and of course my score dropped 11 points. This happened back in Nov2012. I immediately hired a lawyer becasue they weren't playing fair and today we just received a Discontinuance of Action from Rubin Rothman undoubtedly because their case against me was WEAK! I advise anyone to stick it to these garbage collectors with all you have because their unethical, unfair and they fight dirty and pray on the weak. They aggressively pursue by sending bogus supeonas to your place of employment as well. BEWARE!

    ubin Rothman, under Keith H. Rothman an Attorney (N.Y. State bar Registratin number 1419498), obtained a default judgment and bank levy against me with out having ever served me the summons.This Court order was obtained three years after the State Statute of limitations. I successfully proved this in Court . Through their business association with AAA Attorney Service Co. of N.Y. under licensed Notary, Harvey Tauber (No. 01TA4667012) as C.E.O. regularly used and directed disgraced former Licensed Process server, Andrew Lindauer ( License number 0724538) ( ViolationNo. LL 5084162), ( who surrendered his license in a plea deal with The N.Y. City Dept of Consumer Affairs), falsely and knowingly claimed to have served my" Wife Jane" on my behalf. I was divorced and never married to anyone named Jane. My situation is the rule rather than the exception.
    An internet search will show that this is a regular business practice of the individuals and corporations they run or work for. Just as an example: Schuster v. Rubin Rothman, LLC Case 1:12-cv-04854-JG-RER, Zweibel v. Rubin Rothman, LLC Case 1:13-cv-01407- ILG-RML, and Posner v. Rubin Rothman, LLC Case 1:13-cv-01229-FB-RML. Mr. Lindauer had a patter of cite "wives" with the letter J. Look over your paper work. If Tauber notarized it and or Lindauer "served" it you can get the case dismissed/discontinued. If you discover that a bank levy or wage garnishment has been placed against you, challenge it right away by filing with the Court an Affidavit to Vacate a Default Judgement in a a consumer debt case. Go to https://lawhelpinteractive.org/groups/NY-NewYork/template.2009-06-11.0648704087/template_info?Go=Proceed I found mildly amusing that Rubin & Rothman repeatedly claim to have an A+ rating from the B.B.B. When in fact they have several complaints cited against them many of which I've experienced myself. They are not even a member of B.B.B.
    This cite will assist the pro per litigant in how to file the appropriate action to defend themselves. Obviously you will have to add or subtract what is relevant to your case and what is not. What will happen next is that an Attorney/"Closer" will represent Rubin & Rothman in Court. He/She will attempt to settle the debt. DON'T DO IT! You will not see a Judge on the first visit to the Court. The second time will be a repeat of the first visit. You will be directed to a small conference room with a court Mediator and the Attorney/"Closer for Rubin & Rothman. DO NOT ACCEPT THE SETTLEMENT HE/SHE OFFERS!
    At this point the "Closer" for Rubin & Rothman will likely Discontinue the case. In my case he did just that as he bolted from the Court room refusing to shake my hand. ( All class !). I am now preparing to sue Rubin & Rothman, LLC, the Attorney service that falsely claimed to have "served" my fictional Wife Jane, as well as Capital One who had hired Rubin & Rothman to represent them in the first place. My first two causes of action will be for 1. VIOLATION OF THE FAIR DEBT COLLECTION PRACTICES ACT (FDCPA) 15 U.S.C. §1692 ET.SEQ; 2. VIOLATION OF NYGBL § 349.
    While every case is different and some people may not feel comfortable representing themselves It never hurts to consult with an Attorney specializing in consumer/debtor rights. While I am an experienced "Pro Per" I am not an attorney and therefore the information I am relating is strictly an account of what I have done and would do personally. You may want to review the cases I have cited. I suggest the web site Docket Alarm. There is a modest fee for each page but I found well worth it. Good luck.

    If Nassau County, go to 1st Dist court clerk 2nd floor, ask how to file a "Show Cause" order. They will help you. FOLLOW THEIR INSTRUCTIONS. Now, you can tell it to a Judge who knows what slime Rubin and Rothman are (all the judges there know this), state your case and the Judge will pressure the ### to work a reasonable settlement.

    These people are crooks, we fell behind a couple payments with citicard, but kept making payments every month, I made the mistake of paying Dec. too earlt(Nov. 26) and was sent to this collection co. because Dec. was considered not paid., tried to make payment arrangements with R&R, was told NO, I had to go to court, so I lost a days pay and the judge set a wage garnishment up. six months later these crooks levy my bank account and wipe me out, I mean my account reads 0.00. They took my mortgage, car ins. phone, and electric payments, now the house is being foreclosed, no elec., no car ins. no phones, and not one cent for gas to even get to work. I was hitch-hiking 40 miles just to get to work, I can't believe a company like Citi would use such unethical people to represent them. I tell everyone that will listen that citi is the worst for the working class people.
