I currently have a suit against Blitt filed by my attorney Mario Kasalo in Illinois--I highly recommend him--his email is [email]mkriskasalo@yahoo.com[/email]. Tell him I referred you.

I think that your statement is invented.

Nonsense.

Quote:
...according to a chicago attorney office
A complete fabrication.

Illinois State Bar listing for Fred Blitt. NOTE: Registration since 1989, NO disciplinary actions or proceedings.

Illinois State Bar listing for Jan Blitt Gaines. NOTE: Registration since 1987, NO disciplinary actions or proceedings.

So I guess they're not "corrupt" enough for anyone to file a complaint against them.

Yes, they have been sued 20 times for FDCPA violations, but not since February.

And, they are not on Bud Hibb's list of bad collectors.

A law firm is defined as a business entity formed by one or more lawyers to engage in the practice of law. Since this is headed by attorneys, IT IS A **REAL** law firm. Who cares where they get their back-up counsel from, as long as they are licensed attorneys? Do you have any concept of how *expensive* it would be to hire attorneys full time? It's called Subcontracting. Many companies do it, for instance most Debt Collectors are companies that offer a service that is subcontracted from the original creditor. Plus, the vast majority of collection activities do *not* include the Practice of Law, and to expect an attorney to also perform those tasks is ridiculous.

The Principal Attorney(ies) are the ones *responsible* by law for the legal operation of their business and so if you have a legitimate and documented complaint (i.e. a REAL one), then you need to file it against the principal attorny(ies) also (the Bar takes these complaints very seriously).

On the BBB, there are 18 complaints, 6 from the past 12 months. They got an F rating because they ignored 16 of them (probably because they considered them frivolous).

At any rate, my point is: if they are a bad collector and routinely violate the law, anonymous griping WILL NOT HELP AT ALL. You *must* file proper complaints. And this requires EVIDENCE of wrongdoing, according to Due Process of law.

I'm *not* saying they are a great collector, what I *am* saying is that there are remedies to defend yourself against illegal business practices - especially for collectors. The FDCPA has $1,000 statutory penalty, plus possible court costs and attorney fees.


Guest,
Call your local county civil court and ask them how to file a Motion to Vacate the judgement due to Improper Venue and/or Improper Service.

FRAUD: RECOGNIZE IT. REPORT IT. STOP IT.
Rip-off companies - FTC.
Phone harassment by Debt Collectors - FCC.
Banking issues, like ACH problems - OCC.

They are a company passing themselves off as a law firm according to a chicago attorney office. I turned them into the FTC. I paid up to date and they cannot prove other wise.

I have dealt with these kind of crupt businesses before, so turn them in. FTC website.....

Sub: #9 I was living in california and did not live in the address they Thu, 04/23/2009 - 19:57



I was living in california and did not live in the address they claimed they served for me in illinois for at least a year.

they obtained a judgement against me even though there was no one at my old residence related to me.

I have bills and pay stubs showing my CA address when they claim they served me

I am back in chicago and want to know how can i get them to vacate or quash the judgement or at least have an attorney friend of mine still state I am in CA so they don re-serve me--

any advice would be appreciated

Sub: #10 I just don't understand why debt collection companies can't playThu, 04/02/2009 - 13:10



I just don't understand why debt collection companies can't play by the rules??? They normally (yes, there are always exceptions!) are trying to collect on valid debts.?? All they have to do is keep their paperwork straight and stay within some very broad laws that err on their side more than the consumers .... and they just can't seem to manage to do that.?? Why?
