This law firm called Pressler & Pressler break the law repeatedly to collect money from you and no one does anything about it. From day one they break the law by telling you that you can be arrested for not paying a debt. When I got the letter stating this I ignored it because even when I didn't understand my rights I knew I could not be arrested for it. For a debt I never had? Who ever heard of such a thing. I thought they were complete frauds. Come to find out they are frauds but they operate in the open. It's a legal scam and they prey on people hoping that you DO NOT KNOWING YOUR RIGHTS. They take you to court saying that you owe them money and you HAVE TO GO and ask for them to validate the debt. 9 out ten times they can't. But you have to waste your time proving this. THIS IS SO OBSCENE on every level. They don't even care if they got the right person, they just want the money. But I've learned how to stop Pressler and Pressler scam.

When you get that letter immediately send a debt validation letter to them. Keep the letter as evidence and contact the FTC, BBB, NJ AG and the NJ Bar. Report them to every place you can like here and Rippoff.com. If you are hauled into court GO and bring your letter they sent to you breaking the law. Enough people complain something will be done. THESE PEOPLE MUST BE STOPPED. You thought Hess Kennedy was bad, this one just boggles my mind. This is clearly ABUSE OF POWER AND SCAMMING THE CONSUMER It's too late for me but I hope this helps others.
I am going to make it my mission to exposed these people at every turn possible.

Debt relief services may have a negative impact on the consumer's creditworthiness and his overall debt amount may increase due to the accumulation of extra fees.
