LVNV Funding Complaints & Reviews

LVNV FundingOld Debt

I monitor my credit report every week. I noticed that an account was opened in November of 2012 as new. I have never received any correspondence from this company. My attorney explained to me that they buy up expired debt and reopen as new accounts. I disputed the information on my credit report and was directed to make a complaint here as well. I have contacted the company for the original debt and they have not responded. Thank you.

      LVNV Funding, LLC is a bottom feeding debt buyer. In 2011, they settled a pending lawsuit out of court for $12.5 Million. Some of the alleged violations included: Collecting without a license, filing false, bogus affidavits in attempts to get a summary judgement against debtors, Intentionally misrepresenting the amount the debtor owes, and, filing cases where they didn't even have the proof needed to show they had a right to sue the debtor. Of course they never admitted to any wrongdoing. Twelve and a half million dollars sure seems like a lot of money to cough up if they didn't do anything wrong...You sending them a validation request may very well get ignored by this company...Ask your attorney to send the request on the attorney's letterhead. This is usually enough to get them to back off and look for easier prey...You see, a letter from the 'debtor's' attorney tells them you mean business, and they will have to spend a lot more $$ to pursue you. In most cases, debt buyers don't have valid proof to back up their claims, that is, if the debt is even legit in the first place. So, instead of throwing money at a 'debt' they know they can't prove, they simply move on...

      Rip-Off artists - take over an account, add PHONY charges, fees, then pass it on to Ambulance chasers to try and collect -

      Notified State Attorney General who is bring Fraud & Embezzlement charges against them.

    LVNV FundingOn my credit report

    I found a company on my credit report called LVNV funding in the amount of 1580.00 for Portfolio RC. After checking into things I don't know either one, and would like them checked into please because it's a charge I have never heard of.
    Thank You,
    Danette Larson

        One of your credit accounts must have been charged off and sold to a debt collector. Don't worry, they will find you, eventually.

      LVNV FundingAwful company

      LVNV funding is suing me for $909.19 plus court cost because of an old debt they purchased for pennies, the original amount was $498. I tried to pay this debt when I first found out it had been turned over to a collections agency, but they just talk down to me. LVNV funding is taking advantage of people, especially in today's economy, their paying pennies and collecting dollars, this doesn't seem right.

      Isn't that called unjust enrichment, this is not their debt, they bought it which means they choose to lose money, by the way, the attorney for LVNV funding has an unlisted phone number.
