  • What should I do?

    I received a call from NRA, Llc telling me there are 2 allegations against me for not paying back a loan I supposedly borrowed from Manhattan Processing. Jane from NRA was extremely rude and said I would be served papers if I didn't pay immediatel...

    Tregg’s Answer

    My guess is this is a scam. If this is a real third party collector, there may be violations of the FDCPA. My guess is, it's not. I personally, would not pay Jane but would call her bluff and tell her to serve her papers. If you are served, then you know who to counterclaim for FDCPA violations.

  • I bailed my girlfriend out of jail and we broke up... If she shows to court how do I get my money back?

    I payed $700 to bail my girlfriend out of jail. When she goes to court does that money go to me or her?

    Tregg’s Answer

    If you have the receipt, it probably goes to you, assuming no judgments, child support arrears etc. If she has the receipt, then she will probably get the money.

    I had a credit card quite a few years back, I was told opened in 2008 and defaulted in 2009, I thought it was further back than that. I was curious how long they have to collect. It was sent into collections and I just recently was contacted by th...

    Tregg’s Answer

    In addition to the good advice already offered, you should pay attention to when the last payment was made on the debt. Typically, at least in my state, that SOL begins the day after that payment.

  • If I pay the amount stolen can my charges be dropped

    My friend and I were caught shoplifting, I have a job , kids & I'm in college

    Tregg’s Answer

    In my state, you would still be charged. The caption will read State v. You, not Victim v. You. It is the people of your state who are aggrieved, not simply the alleged victim.

  • What is the proper legal process to collect a time barred debt? ( Debt is from Tennessee)

    I received a total of three private phone calls in two days. When I finally answered, I was referred to another number to call which was a litigation company, Williams & Rivera Litigation Gp. I was told that I was being sued for a debt that was t...

    Tregg’s Answer

    If the debt is time barred and a third party collector sues to recover the debt, you not only have an affirmative defense to the case, but the collector may have violated the FDCPA. You may want to speak with a consumer attorney in your area.

  • Filing for a new judge

    my current judge ruled against my wishes for my son to start Head Start. He said that my son can stay in daycare. This is because his father would have to drive 15 minutes to my town on his visit days and he doesn't want to. I have final say and ...

    Tregg’s Answer

    You don't get to pick a different judge just because you disagree with a ruling. You may be able to file an appeal to have the next court review the ruling for errors, but you have time limitations in play.

  • What can I do about charges that were incurred even though I was never given my Miranda rights?

    Tregg’s Answer

    I will add tot eh excellent answers posted by my colleagues here by telling you that failure to remind someone of their Miranda rights is not a get out of jail free card. At best, failure to warn might get incriminating statements solicited by law enforcement suppressed.

    • Selected as best answer

    You may want to consult with a consumer attorney to see if you have a case against the collector under the FDCPA. If the collector violated the Act, they may be responsible for statutory damages of up to $1,000, plus attorney's fees and costs (dealing with the FDCPA claim). In addition, you may be able to claim real damages in the form of your prior attorney's fees. Good luck.
