Ever heard of "FREDERICK J hANNA AND ASSOCIATES ?

member profile picture

THEY ARE OUT OF MARIETTA, GA. I received a "Collection letter" from a Dennis E. Henry, supposedly one of their attorneys.

I replied with a Demand letter requesting complete and accurate VALIDATION in accordance with the fdcpa. I also ask for proof that they are licensed to practice law in my state. I asked for further proof that they have in fact been retained by the Client ( Chase Bank) or if they have purchased this debt from another Collection Agency. The attorney never replied, instead he had his "legal assistant" to reply, basically stating that, "yep our Client says you owe this much money"...no Validation, no copy of the signed original agreement....nothing !
And to cap it off, the Legal Assistant...never even signed the letter she sent back to me !

I did contact the Supreme Court on line data base in my state....neither the Firm or Dennis Henry( attorney) is licensed in my state...either by annual license, or under the provisions called "PRO HAC VICE" ( limited license )

I"m pretty sure that they have bought this from another collector..in which case Chase Bank IS NOT THEIR CLIENT, and would constitute sending me "false and mis-leading presentments via US Mail. my suspicions are supported by the fact that I had received a letter from another agency regarding Chase Bank several weeks ago....and whom I 'slam-dunked" with A cease and desist letter because they could not VALIDATE THE DEBT !
I am going to send "Hanna" a DEMAND TO CEASE AND DESIST all communication and collection efforts until such time as they can provide sufficient proof that they are Licensed in my state as well as a signed affidavite or "letter from Chase Bank" authorizing them to collect for them..

Your take on all of this, please !

Not required under the FDCPA. You would have to request these in the Discovery phase of litigation.

A cease comm is an all or nothing. You can't tell them "Don't contact me" and "send validation".

I am dealing with them now...I received a summons from them last week. I have read all the things that have been said on here about them and what bud hibbs has to say. I have contacted another attorney that has an office in marietta for information on hanna. I have to put in a call to his office tomorrow. Have to wait and see what happens.

yup this guy is quite slick the way he works. from what I have read lately,this work envirenment is full of toxic black mold and people are urged not to accept or open any mail from them. I don't know for sure,but the word is many employees came forward and reported very unfair practices going on there. like I said,I just read this,so don't know.guess the place had to be evacuated a couple weeks ago. the cdc, and osha are involved,so we will see.

Sub: #4 Getting Harrassing phone calls
Sat, 07/25/2009 - 07:46

We have been getting naty phone calls from Hanna Reps for the past month. The company we are working with to settle our debts have sent them a cease and desist notice. They are alway trying to record us saying "I will not pay this debt." We keep referring them to the company we are working with. Their story to us keeps changing. They say they want to settle, but they want payments of 5,000.00/month. Who has that kind of $$$. If we did, we wouldn't need debt settlemnt. Don't know if he has license t practice in Utah. I will check into that.

I have dealt with them, they are bottom feeders and the worst of all of them if you ask me. They will use scare tactics to get you to pay----and I don't think they are licensed in very many states. They gunned me until i finally said yes i would make payment to them. I made six payment could not get a balance from them and finally called them, froze them out of my bank account, and told them no more and proceded to ignore them.
Consequently they sold it off to someone who is working with my debt program! Dot all your i's and cross all your t's when dealing with them! Also don't put to much into letting them tell you that you are talking to an attorney, 90% of the time it is someone trying to get the commission on the other end of the phone. Most attorney's are not going to make collection calls they have the demons do it!

Sub: #6 Blood suckers
Wed, 08/26/2009 - 08:28

I have had an episode with these blood suckers as well. I left on maternity leave and was not paid for 3 months and therefore used plastic money (Chase) to pay off some bills. I did not buy a big screen or stereo or anything else that I could sell to get this money back, I paid off bills while I was out of work with my daughter. They contacted me and threatened legal action if I did not settle this right away they would take me to court or garnish my wages. The man I spoke with gave me false promises "what if I could do $200/mo" I said sure, he put the manager on and she says $360, I said what happened to $200? She said oh well he can't quote that, we can't do it, I said neither can I! After they did get my account information and whacked me 3 months in a row, screwing up my account and me ending up with overdraft fees I cancelled the account. They STILL got money out of my NEW account through my old card because it was set up with both accounts for a short time until I got my new card. They told me on the phone we "can't post date debit card payments" yet thats exactly what they did. I told him he made his money and leave me alone or do what you have to do. I'm glad I'm not alone with this battle.

Mon, 10/12/2009 - 12:23

I am in the midst of dealing with them as well. The alleged original creditor was CHASE BANK U.S.A. NA. I sent them (CHASE) a request for verification and validation including specifics of what I was asking for. One of their financial advisors sent me almost everything I asked for except a copy of the original contract (application) with my signature on it. The corrospondence included a letter stating in the later paragraphs that they could not locate it.

They continued to send statements with continuing inflation of interest.
6 months later I get a self executing contract from Frederick J Hanna, stating that if I do not dispute within 30 days of receiving thier notice they will seek a judgement. So I sent them an acceptance of thier offer to contract opon terms that I have illustrated in the form of a sworn notarized affidavit stating the facts of the situation with attached copies of my corrospondence with CHASE.

I am still awaiting a response from them.

They have judgments against them.

Try to find them their collectors names on their facebooks or myspace, linkedin. It's a world of possibilities.

Also, do a google map search to find where and what their office exactly looks like.

I have found them in Kennesaw, GA, Marietta, GA, and Roswell, GA, Madison, GA.

Look at the public records of Cobb County in Georgia. In the past, I have been able to place the name with the face because of all the social networks.
