Just as with any type of lawsuit, debt collectors must prove their cases before they can expect the court to decide in their favor. In many cases, however, debt collectors can be hard-pressed to produce so much as a statement that shows you ever held the allegedly delinquent account in the first place.
If you have been notified that an action against you has been initiated by a debt collector, don’t think that you have no rights in the matter. State and federal laws, including the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA), impose certain requirements on the debt collector and protect you with certain rights as the alleged debtor. A reliable Syracuse debt collection lawsuit attorney can help you understand your rights and work with you to ensure that they are protected.
