Get Legal Assistance from a Los Angeles Attorney Who Sues Collection Agencies
Debt collection companies make mistakes. Records may not get updated, wrong phone

people of similar names or in cases of identify theft. But just because a collection

Violations of Debt Collection Rules and Types of Debt
Rules apply in cases of debt collection by original creditors as well as third party
collection agencies that have been hired to collect your debt or have purchased you
