Lawsuit Filed Against Lazega and Johanson

On behalf of our client, Lemberg & Associates recently filed a complaint in U.S. District Court, Northern District of George, against Lazega & Johanson.

Our client alleges that she received a letter from a certain collection agency about a debt. She agreed to a payment arrangement with the agency and committed to making monthly payments of about $300. A few weeks later, Lazega & Johanson sent her a letter saying that they had been retained to collect the debt and “accruing interest and attorney’s fees” from her. A few weeks later, Lazega & Johanson began calling her. Our client mailed Lazega & Johanson a certified letter telling them that she had already made a payment agreement for the debt. Soon after, she sent them another certified letter disputing the validity of the debt and requested that Lazega & Johanson cease all communications with her. Lazega failed to provide our client with validation of the debt and continued to call her in an attempt to collect it. Then, Lazega & Johanson filed a lawsuit against our client in court, but she does not live in that jurisdiction and the debt was not incurred there.

The lawsuit charges that Lazega & Johanson violated the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) by engaging in harassing behavior; by using false, deceptive, or misleading representation in connection with the collection of a debt; by using unfair and unconscionable means to collect a debt; by failing to send a validation notice; by misrepresenting the character, amount, and legal status of a debt; by continuing collection efforts even though the debts had not been verified; and by employing false and deceptive means to collect a debt.

The lawsuit also charges that Lazega & Johanson violated the Georgia Fair Business Practices Act.
