#5 - What can you do if you are sued by a collection agency?

5. Sue Them Back

If a debt collector has violated provisions of the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, you may be entitled to sue them. “Once you attach their lawsuit as Exhibit A to your lawsuit against them the tables turn, and if you or your attorney knows what they are doing, the alleged debtors can get damages and attorney’s fees and costs,” says Howard. He’s talking about consumers who successfully sue for violations of the FDCPA are entitled to statutory damages of $1000, plus punitive and economic damages, if awarded. Keep i mind, the collection agency will be required to pay the attorney’s fees and costs.
