Sub: CAUTION!!! MASSACHUSETTS RESIDENTS!!! - Howard Lee Schiff PC

Anything from Law Offices of Howard Lee Schiff PC or
STEPHEN A. WIENER who works at that firm are urged to not ignore.

I was at the court house in Fall River Massachusetts and noticed the sheet on the wall of the court cases for the day. There was about 15 cases filed by STEPHEN A. WIENER mostly for Midland Funding.

Just a heads up to the consumers.

Well, I'm sure the agreement said that if you do not pay (after all, you did make an agreement to pay, didn't you?) that you will be sued...makes sense, doesn't it?! :idea:

What I don't understand is why you people feel that you can walk away from the debt that YOU owe from spending money on things that YOU own? So basically, you can go out there, use your credit cards to buy things, don't bother paying it (you should not have spent money you didn't have in the first place!) and then DENY that you owe the money? Unreal! Who are the real crooks here?! STOP SPENDING MONEY YOU DO NOT HAVE! Common sense people!

Sub: #3 Question: what if I have already had a judgement against me andFri, 11/12/2010 - 05:29



Question: what if I have already had a judgement against me and I have made a couple of payments and now my wages are garnished (25% of take home). I did not know anything about debt validation - can I still require that they validate the debt at this point?

Will this law firm let you set up payment arrangements before they send something for court?

Sub: #5 in Massachusetts. Long story short got a court summons from ScFri, 10/08/2010 - 12:52



in Massachusetts. Long story short got a court summons from Schiff for a debt. responded to summons, repeatedly asked for debt validation. they never provided it. judge gave them 30 days to validate at pre-trial. they still did not. schiff sent letter to me 1 day before next pre-trial for a dismissal without prejudice. I didn't sign. went to court and asked for a dismissal WITH prejudice and since Schiff did not comply with the judge's validation demand, he granted the DWP. case closed..

Sub: #6 I'm following the advice if NASCAR and sending a validation lettFri, 05/21/2010 - 12:56



I'm following the advice if NASCAR and sending a validation letter to Schiff offices. Here is a link to a sample letter to send. It is perfect. Good luck. I don't even know what I owe them for and if it is a legitimate balance. Supposedly, when these collectors "purchase" your debt, it is for 10% of the value, so any payment is profit to them. http:// www.creditinfocenter.com/forms/sampleletter9.shtml

Sub: #8 The Law Firm put a lien on my house without telling us we are maSat, 10/24/2009 - 14:52



The Law Firm put a lien on my house without telling us we are making payments for a $900 credit card. I sent the facts to this Law Firm Lee Howard Schiff. I have a homestead I bought during my Mortgage. They can't put a lien, unsecured debts like credit cards do to the homestead. They have 30 days to take the lien off and take to lien off my credit reports or I will counter sue for degrading my credit score and report and putting an illegal lien on my property. Just in case, the credit card was my wife's she is protected by the homestead, she sold me any interest in our vehicles. I was told they could repo the vehicles.

I just finished with them in small claims. I fought it and the amount is lower than what they sued me for. Also they sent me a judgement form and said "now you won't have to go to court" tricky way of getting the judgement against me. They violated the fdcpa by threatening me with garnishing my wages, freezing my assets and putting a lien on my home. They did not itemize the amount I owe. USC 1692e & 1692f. Wish all could get together and file a class action suit against Howard Lee Schiff in Federal Court.
