Nationwide Credit and Collection: From Our Case Files

On behalf of our client, Lemberg & Associates recently filed a complaint in U.S. District Court, Northern District of Illinois, against Nationwide Credit and Collection. Our client alleges that Nationwide Credit and Collection called her attempting to collect a debt owed by her son and daughter. She explained that the debts should not have been placed on her credit report, and Nationwide Credit and Collection promised to remove them. While Nationwide Credit and Collection did remove the accounts, the debt collection agency didn’t remove the two Social Security numbers associated with the accounts. When our client called Nationwide Credit and Collection regarding the Social Security numbers, Nationwide Credit and Collection didn’t return her call. When our client attempted to get a home loan, she was denied because of the two Social Security numbers.

The lawsuit charges that Nationwide Credit and Collection 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 threatening to communicate false credit information; by employing false and deceptive means to collect a debt; and by using unfair and unconscionable means to collect a debt. In addition, the lawsuit charges that Nationwide Credit and Collection violated the Illinois Collection Agency Act, violated the Illinois Consumer Fraud Act, and intentionally inflicted emotional distress on our client.
