Are you a victim of Lakeside Recovery Solutions Harassment?
Under the federal Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, generally speaking, a debt collector is classified as a person or a company that regularly collects debts owed to creditors, companies, and original lenders. Lakeside Recovery Solutions is one of such debt collectors, and usually, a debt collector only steps in when the debts that are meant to be collected on are past-due.
Debt collectors, according to the FDCPA, is a category extended to include collection agencies or lawyers who collect debts as part of their business. There are also companies like Lakeside Recovery Solutions that buy past-due debts from creditors or other businesses and then try to collect them. These are the debt collectors that are referred to as debt collection agencies, debt collection companies, or debt buyers.
If you are getting calls from a debt collector, they may be trying to contact you for any of the following reasons:
- You may be past due on a debt, and the creditor you owe it to may use their own in-house debt collectors to make an attempt to retrieve the debt, or may have referred or sold your debt to an outside debt collector.
- A debt collector may be calling you to get information about someone you know. This is perfectly legal, provided that the debt collector does not reveal that they intend to collect a debt or reveal any details about that debt to you.
- An instance where your debt has been purchased by a debt buyer.
If you are receiving calls from a debt collector over the payment of a debt and you have concerns about the legitimacy of the debt, they claim you owe, the amount they are claiming, or if the company contacting you is real, you might want to speak to an attorney by calling (877)-700-5790 or report the matter to a credit counseling organization.
It is important to have a plan and to know what you want before speaking with a debt collector. If everything goes well, or better still, if you have an attorney or representative on your side, then you might be able to set up a payment plan or negotiate with them to settle the debt for pennies on the dollar.
Additionally, you are allowed to ask a debt collector to stop contacting you; this is what is known as a cease-and-desist letter, and it should be put forward to Lakeside Recovery Solutions in writing.
However, note that asking Lakeside Recovery Solutions to stop contacting you will not prevent them from suing you or reporting the debt to a credit reporting company, it will only put a stop to the pesky phone calls you receive, however, you will need a more solid, long-term plan.
If you are convinced that you do not owe the debt or have evidence that you have already paid the debt, or that it has been discharged in bankruptcy or in a settlement agreement, then it is important to take action to contest the attempt to collect the debt.
Lakeside Recovery Solutions and the FCRA
In your experience with Lakeside Recovery Solutions, you should note that they are allowed to make a negative report to a consumer reporting company, and this can potentially have a negative impact on your credit report and your credit score.
In many of the cases we have seen, the debt has exceeded the statute of limitations, and thus it may be too old to affect your credit report or credit scores. Additionally, you don’t think that you owe the debt, that you are being contacted about, you have a right to dispute it with the debt collector and the credit reporting company. If this debt verification is made within a 30-day time period of receiving information about the debt from the collector, then the debt collector is required by law to send you a verification of the debt. You can ask for whatever additional information will be relevant to you towards the identification and resolution of the debt they claim you owe, and they are required to provide it.
