A consumer sued GC Services alleging that GC Services violated the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (“FDCPA”) by telling consumer “we have a wage garnishment set to go through” in three days. According to the Fair Debt lawsuit, GC Services told the consumer that GC Services would garnish 75 per cent of his pay from his job at a convenience store.
The Fair Debt lawsuit also alleges that, when the consumer informed GC Services that he had a lawyer, GC Service’s employee told him that he was “f____g lying” about having a lawyer and told him that the debt was “your f_____g responsibility”. (If proven true, the consumers’ allegation that the debt collector used profanity would violate the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act.)
The Fair Debt lawsuit further alleges that GC Services had not sued the consumer, no lawsuit had been filed, and no judgment has been entered against him.
The facts alleged in the Fair Debt lawsuit are just that — alleged facts. The truth or falsity of the consumer’s allegations has not been proven in any court.
