Consumer Complaint: I had received a letter from Rausch, Sturm, Isreal, Enerson & Hornick, LLC. Attorneys at Law (? ) representing XXXX XXXX XXXX, XXXX regarding a XXXX XXXX XXXX . The letter states they are attorneys. Yet online no listing in the XXXX XXXX XXXX nor Wisconsin Bar ; the letter states that they work out of XXXX, WI. The only time a debt collector needs to hire attorneys is to protect the firm against the Unfair Debt Collection Act and other regulatory complaint. The firm is asking me to pay an additional {$120.00} to take the case. It is XXXX XXXX XXXX that hired them not I. Again, Debt Collection agencies only hire law firms if the Debt Collector has broken the law or are knowingly engaged in illegal or unethical practices. The law firm in question has several illegal and unethical outstanding complaints. I believe there is collusion on both companies and would like my debt handle by another firm not has no association with the law firm or this debt collector. The phone number for the law firm is XXXX XXXX XXXX ‘s phone number is XXXX I believe that after investigation of this matter that the fake law firm should be fined to the point that they must file bankruptcy. Also, XXXX XXXX should be monitored more closely as their workers do n’t sound licensed or that it is current. XXXX XXXX XXXX is aware that Raush, ect. Is not a real law firm. Anyone that is an actual lawyer that collects debts works on high end side like yacht and jet loans recovery. Not my account. A simple debt collector just needs a high school diploma, pass a background check and pass regulatory testing.
