Issue: Took or threatened to take negative or legal action

Consumer Consent Provided to Share Complaint: Consent provided

Consumer Complaint: I ‘ve had issues with cavalry portfolio services. They purchase old debts threaten to sue you and collect on old debts. My wife and I had given this company money on old debts that I feel they did n’t have a right to collect. Anyway now they have their last frutal attempt to collect a debt that is beyond the statue of limitations in my state. They are not the original creditor and it seems they are re-aging the debt so it stays on my credit report longer than necessary. I would like this removed from my credit report and the company punished for being unscrupulous.
