Sub: #1 They can legally call you once to skip trace on a debt. Have yoTue, 02/22/2011 - 14:58



They can legally call you once to skip trace on a debt. Have you done a cease and desist in writing? Do they acknowlege that the debtor is a neighbour or do they think they live with you?

As for the last line, pretty juvenile. CA's if you have a case, settle out of court.

Sub: #2 Landis legal entity and addressTue, 02/22/2011 - 14:54



They are calling me about a neighbor's debt despite being told not to. Does anyone know their legal entity and address? Heard he is in PA but can't find him in PA Secy of State or Bar Association records. I would like to at least get a judgment against them so I can call and harass them when they don't pay up.

Sub: #3 No it will not erase the debt from your credit bureau. It will Mon, 02/07/2011 - 15:38



No it will not erase the debt from your credit bureau. It will change it from owed to settled, but (and this is an important but) the time it is reported on your credit bureau starts over, so it will sit there for another 7 to 10 years.

I had a friend that had a debt owed that she did not even know about that had been outstanding for 6 and 1/2 years. They called her and bullied her so she paid it and now the "account settled" will stay on her credit for 7 more years when it would have come off in 6 more months whether she paid it or not!

Check the time it has been outstanding and if the company has written it off as they are important factors. If it is relatively new (say 1 to 2 years old) then I say settle it for as little as you can since these people bought the debt for pennies on the dollar and are trying to make a profit on something the original creditor wrote off a while ago!

I am an accounting PhD and have done the research on these to verify my statements. However, I suggest you do your own research on the topic for peace of mind. I would even talk to a lawyer that offers free consultations as they will provide the best knowledge about it.

Sub: #4 These people started calling my parents and work numbers when I Mon, 09/13/2010 - 17:23



These people started calling my parents and work numbers when I was out of town. It took me SIX times to get thru to them today to find out what this "legal matter" was about. The lady kept disconnecting me. They are supossedly from "Tom Landis' Law Office". Now, I don't know any law office that works out of a call center, which is obviously where this call was taking place from! I had to ask him to stop the buzzing noise and the background chatter so I could hear him.

The man I spoke with (ED HEISENBURG) was trying to tell me I owed $4500 to a Citybank account from 1999. Said he was working with Pennecale Credit Services. Here's the funny thing. I asked how long he had my file on his desk and he said since APRIL 26TH and he had just started calling on it in SEPTEMBER. WTF?!? IF this was real and IF it was a time sensitive matter, I doubt it would be sitting there for 4.5 months on someone's desk. All the information he had on me was at my parents address, nothing new and he only had my new phone number because my mom gave it to him.

All of my credit cards have been paid off and I tried to tell him that and offered to send him the copy of my credit report showing it paid off (with everything else marked out obviously) and he replied "So, everything you have ever had in your life is paid off?" Told him with the exception of my student loans and current utilities and rent, yes. I just kept asking him to mail me proof or email me proof and he wouldn't. Said "this matter had to be taken care of by 5pm today". My guess is they are bottom feeders/junk debt collectors trying to scare people into paying old debt that is ready to fall off.

Sub: #7 We received a letter from them today. Tomorrow we will be sendinTue, 07/06/2010 - 17:22



We received a letter from them today. Tomorrow we will be sending a certified letter/receipt reuested to them. We will be asking for proof of debt (if you go to court they must show it) including signature;a chronology of all fees/schedules to justify what they say we owe;their license information for our state (they must be licensed to sue in your state normally);a copy of the original document I supposedly signed with the bottomfeeder that supposedly bought the debt. Now, having said that, they can file suit after the DV letter but if you request the information and they don't show it, it will get thrown out. MOST IMPORTANTLY, if your state allows, record your conversations with them..tell them you are recording and don't bluff them..do it! Every time I do that they hang up and I don't hear from them for a while. FILE A COMPLAINT WITH YOUR STATE ATTORNEY GENERAL OFFICE FOR YOUR STATE AND PA and the FTC. I filed on another bottomfeeder out of CA and I ca tell you it does make a difference.

[QUOTE=Rebecca Miller;688673]The SOL will save your interest,and there is nothing to worry.Things will be taken care of.It is known to a lot of people that the company has people who are extremely rude.They threaten people of taking away everything they have if they are not able to pay back or make timely payments.Someday they will definitely loose their ability and identity as a law office.[/QUOTE]
