Ferry & Nichols Said Barclay’s Bank Sued Me. – Amanda

“Dear Steve,

I just received a letter in the mail from Ferry & Nicholas, Inc., which reads almost identical to the letter from them posted on your website. They indicated Barclay’s Bank has filed a claim against me and the Sherrif will serve me soon. They also stated the creditor may attach my checking account. They provided me a case number but no court date. Is this legit? I do not know how to verify if a suite has been filed. Thanks so much for any assistance you can provide.


Dear Amanda,

First off you need to understand this company is now a lawyers office. They say so in their letter, “We are not a law firm.” But from the look of the letterhead it would be easy to think they are.

I’ve written about Ferry & Nichols before, here.

It is easy to check and see if you have actually been sued. Just call your local county court house and ask them if they can confirm or deny the lawsuit allegation.

The company says they can help settle your claim so they look as if they are a debt settlement company.

I would recommend that anyone considering using such a company should read the following free guides.
