Consumer Complaint: On XX/XX/XXXX I was sent an alert from my financial institution my checking and savings accounts had been wiped clean. I learned it was done by a debt collection company based out of XXXX, NY with offices in state I reside New Jersey. Pressler and Pressler was the company, I phoned and was told a summary judgement had been passed with regard to a collection agency XXXX XXXX for a charged off credit card account from XXXX. I know I should have been contacted to appear in court a supeona should have been sent registered mail for signature it was not. I also know according to FDCPA I have the right to request all of the information about this account payment history signed documents of transfer basically all information you would have from a transfer of ownership. They would not comply. Instead they probed my for more information they didnt have such as contact number employer information and vital details. I researched this collection agency/law office and they have hundreds of complaints of similar situations where they routinely operate outside the scope of the law yet it seems no action is taken. I formally request since I am unable to get the evidence I requested and they have seized all of my monies checking and savings for my housing and essentials. If they went through the proper channels I would have been notified how is it this office can operate legally.
