Consumer Complaint: Consumers need to be on the ALERT about a law group name, XXXX XXXX XXXX XXXX XXXX XXXX a.k.a XXXX XXXX XXXX XXXX XXXX and other alias. The are a debt buying firm and they obtain FALSIFIED judgments. An Earnings Withholding Order was received by my employer from this firm claiming they have a judgment against me for a debt from XXXX card. I called XXXX card and they notified me that the debt was charged off ( sold ) and if anyone is making an attempt to collect it is for their benefit not XXXX. I gave them the name of the firm and they told me that I needed to contact them because XXXX has NO ties to this firm. Upon reviewing the ” court documents ” it appears that XXXX XXXX XXXX XXXX XXXX alleged to have served me, however according legitimate court documents XX/XX/2016 shows that papers were returned due to not found/no service. They then started to submit false documents to the court stating I was served as to obtain a default judgment. I am not the only person that this has happened to, matter of I have a co-worker that they are pursuing as well. Please investigate the practices of this business.
