Use This Advanced Strategy To Stop Harassing Debt Collector Calls: Ventura County Foreclosure Avoidance & Short Sale Help

Your Ventura County Certified Short Sale Specialist. Loan Modification Denied? HARP re-fi denied? Want to avoid foreclosure?In Ventura County, many of the short sale sellers we help are selling their home to avoid foreclosure. In addition, they are receiving lots of harassing calls from debt collectors.

These debt collectors seem to think that if you call someone with no extra money, then you can still get them to pay. Here is a little tip on how to stop their phone calls.

A friend of mine looks for missing people. The database he uses is also a prominent debt collection database. He told me something interesting.

Apparently people are suing debt collectors for breaking Debt Collection Laws all the time. These lawsuits are expensive for them to defend against and easy for the consumer to file.

(I can’t agree more. In my opinion, the debt collectors knowingly break the rules all the time.)
To help debt collectors avoid future lawsuits they now have a field in their search that flags people that have filed lawsuits.

They know that if they harass these people, then they are much more likely to get a lawsuit from them.

As you can see, they are scared! In my last blog post I detailed what were, in my opinion, the different violations of the law.

You can read more info on the law at this link and see for yourself if a debt collector is violating it.
If you feel they have violated the law, then find a good lawyer to file suit on your behalf. There are many good lawyers who specialize in helping consumers when a debt collector violates the act.
Just Google “Fair Debt Collections Lawyer.” Many can help you at no cost out of your pocket.
They will take your case on a contingency basis and get paid from the money they collect from the debt collector. Thinking about a short sale?
