How Do I File a Complaint Against an Agency?

There are regulations in place to protect consumers from collection agency harassment.

The first step in filing a complaint against an agency is to speak with an experienced attorney. You’ll want someone who has experience with collection agencies. You file complaints with the Federal Trade Commission; to do this, you need someone with knowledge of the system and the paperwork. We can help. You may even choose to submit a complaint to the attorney general of your state. However far you wish to take this claim, we’ll be there, fighting by your side!
