Weltman Weinberg Reis / Illegal Collection Practices
What can I say? The reports on this company when you google them are shocking and the company has been sued in all 50 states. At my last knowledge banned in 2 states for abusive and illegal practices.
The use court documents to intimidate consumers into releasing personal information. The documents are legit, they are used in court but the trick is WWR doesn't file them as required by law and they seem to forget that a JUDGE NEEDS TO SIGN the document before they can send a subpeona. They can't forge some signature and there will be a raised seal on the document.
The have taked personal information to seize assets that are not permissible under the law to seize such social security disabilty.
There have been reports of their "gestappo" stalking debtors and harassing family members IN PERSON waiving firearms, and physically assaulting people.
They attach the bill to "anyone" without confirming identity. There have been a history of complaints of these folks attaching a bill to the werong person and trying to get default judgements.
They threaten loss of job, jail, and other blatant terroristic threats.
They have been reported to make unauthorized charges on debit card numbers provided by unsuspecting debtors authorizing a single charge. It is also reported they don't give the money they collect to the original creditor.
I also have heard they intentionally re-age accounts for the sole purpose of extending the credit reporting period.
The list goes on. I don't see why they are not shut down in all 50 states and just 2.
