I saw this article and found it shocking. District Attorneys (DAs) are letting collection agencies use the DA’s letterhead to collect on alleged debts.
It is important to read all of the documents you get and important to read the whole document.
Another thing to consider is that this article didnt show any examples, unfortunately. It would be nice to have seen an example and be able to dissect it.
I like getting collection letters as they are just the start of cashflow to me. I would love to get one from a collector on the DA’s letterhead. It would be interesting and fun to sue the local DA in federal court for FDCPA violations. How can the DA be anything but a collector as defined by the FDCPA?
I find it interesting how the line between our judicial system and the collection agencies is becoming non-existent. If you go to a county or state court for anything, you can see for your self. It is a ripoff. You may find the “judge” is little more than a cashier in an ugly dress.
My experience in Federal Court has been much different than my experience in the local kangaroo courts. FDCPA and FCRA issues are likely best put before a federal court and jury.
Let me know if I can help you. Fight the good fight, Boiler
