I was pulled into court by Howard Lee Schiff for money I owed to a credit card company. Being out of work and not collecting made my options slim but I agreed to pay $10 a month. I guess that wasn't good enough for them because six months later I was back at court to fight against the money they had taken from my checking account. I was dead broke and had...

I have already been to court to have a lien removed from my home. The judge ruled in my favor for many reasons, among them are incorrect addresses, dates, names, falsified records and the fact that this is a debt from my ex, now deceased from 1997, and that the home I am in was inherited many years after my divorce. On Christmas eve of this year, 2011, the...

They were chasing me for a hospital bill that was a duplicate (in error by the hospital). Rather than bothering to contact me and learning that it was an error on the part of the hospital they started harassing my wife and put a lien on my house that I had to pay $55 to have taken off. These are horrible people. They should not be allowed to do business.

This lawfirm represents Capital One. They do not properly validate debts and proceed with collection activity and lawsuits against you after they are unable to prove anything. They will not verify or confirm they have been assigned the account. They demand money far in excess of what they ultimately sue you for. The worst of it, they knowingly sent notice...

Law Offices Howard Lee Schiff - SCAM ARTIST

This is the worst bunch of people that I have ever had to deal with. We had a Bernie's (GE Money) account sent to Bernie's because they messed up the contract. Even though we were making our payments, they were not being credited to the account properly. It was a 12 month contract no inetrest if paid in full within 12 months. We fought with them forever to provide us with documentation showing where our payments were posted. We never received anything. So we quit paying until the account was straightened out. In the meantime this was sent to Howard Lee Schiff . Our balance has went from $3800.00 original contract to $1457.00 (balance owed) all the way to $5200.00 since Howard Lee Schiff has taken over. I have fought with them since August 2010. They are rude, talk to people like they are dirt and they are not willing to provide you with any information. We have offered to pay the $1500.00 but they refuse stating that GE money will not settle. This is a bunch of BULL...I think the Attorney Generals office should definitely shut this place down.

I don't understand why the Attorney General has not shut this company down, but I do feel that all complaints to her office go on deaf ears! This Collection Agency by the name of Howard Lee Schiff needs to be Stopped! We had three (3) credit cards charged off by HSBC after contacting HSBC the would not work with us. We received notification by US Mail from...

Law Offices Howard Lee Schiff - misleading communications

i received 2 letters from the company . i on june 23rd 2010 that stated that i am offered to pay a settlement of 60% of the amount due in a lump sum before july 23rd, 2010 or i can pay the 70% of the settlement in 3 months of july 23, august 23, and sept 23rd. The other letter is stated that i have to pay the lump sum of the amount due before 10 days which is totally a different letter .

Law Offices Howard Lee Schiff - collection on debt

Howard lee schiff has been nothing but a pain in my side. I had agreed to a payment plan with them through my settlement company and am on payment #3 and this people are calling my house all the time saying they are trying to collect on my debt.. I have documents from both my settlement company and schiff agreeing to the payment plan and so far have not missed one payment but yet they are calling again.. someone need to put a stop to these people and take them to court over false practice's. They will stop at nothing and have no shame in what they do.

They sent us a letter stating that they were representing a company called midland funding stating we owed them 13, 000 both shciff and midland funding both appear to be total sleaze operations. We called and got the run around they would not tell us what it was regarding or who we owed or anything about midland funding. IF YOU GET A LETTER FROM THESE...

I agree. They won't even negotiate anything and they call themselves debt collectors! Debt collectors will try to work with you if you are willing to pay but not these people. They will not make "payment arrangements". They have what they call discounted amounts which is ridiculous and expect you to pay ASAP... ya think if I had the money to pay I would have been talkng to them in the first place? When you are paying them, and you ask them to let you know what your balance is they never repond to you one way or the other. They are very unprofessional.

I have HAD IT with these people! I was unfairly and deceptively scared into signing a judgment with these ###, I was not informed that I had the right to dispute the debt (which I believe they are required to do by law) was told that I did not want to waste the courts time and could go to jail which is illegal and I did not know this. I met them in the...

I wouldn't normally go this far as to write something online regarding a company. However, these rotten, ruthless individuals had me over a barrel in the beginning of the year and I'm still seathing over it. Due in part to the fact that they appear to be untouchable. I contacted the Atty. Generals office not once but twice with no response. I decided to do...

They just took out of my account $730.00 without sending me a note, leaving my family in the dark, without lights or food. This was my two weeks salary. They said that they don't have to let me know anything. That it is my responsibility to keep up with my balances. They were very rude on the phone. Now not only I owe the bank $35 fee for 8 transaction...
