    I'm on Sarpy county probation, and I got a trespassing charge in Douglas, will she find out? Do I need to tell her?

    Yes. Your conditions of probation probably includes no new law violations, so you should self report.

    You don't have as clear a picture of the case as the two charged defendants. They each have their own counsel to represent them. Each defendant has his or her own interests and their attorney's will each deal with that.

  • How do you stop scamming debt collector calls? Can you sue due to them harassing family & calling your work?

    For 2 years scammers have been calling me & my family saying that I owe money from a payday loan that was never paid. This is untrue and yet we continue to get harassing phone calls. How can this be stopped? Or can harassment charges be filed?

    Tregg’s Answer

    If these scammers were legitimate collectors, you could sue for violations of the FDCPA. Typically, these folks work off shore or in the Buffalo NY area (for some reason) and work off of throw away cell phones out of basements. If you can find out where the agency is, you have a bit more info about them. You can sue them, but if they are scammers, you'll end up chasing shadows. Your best bet may be to let them know that you know they are scammers and they will not be getting any money from you. The AG in Nebraska will almost certainly not be helpful. I have called often, left dozens of messages and never once gotten a person or a call back.

    Tregg’s Answer

    Is it housing or a third party collector trying to collect money from you? If a third party collector, you may want to speak to a consumer attorney about possible violations of the FDCPA.

    I will add to Mr. Corbin's excellent answer. There is no public right of action regarding HIPPA violations. That is, you have no standing to sue for any HIPPA violations. Now, it could be possible that the collector has violated the Fair Debt Collections Practices Act in some other way. That might by misrepresenting the amount or character of the debt. That is actionable and if there is a violation, the third party collector is responsible for your attorney's fees and costs in addition to statutory damages.

    Tregg’s Answer

    The other attorneys here are correct. You may want to speak to a consumer attorney regarding a FCRA or perhaps an FDCPA claim. Under both of those Acts, the offender may have to pay your attorney's fees and costs if they violated the Act. I have heard similar stories from a particular lawn service in Omaha doing this exact same thing. If you do have an FCRA claim, there are steps you will need to take prior to filing suit. They are not difficult, but there needs to be an attention to detail. Don't let these guys treat you poorly.

    Tregg’s Answer

    The lender can sue you for the money owed. They can also sell or assign the debt to a third party collector. You can attempt to settle with any of these entities. Without knowing more, there is no way to tell if bankruptcy is right for you.

    This question is far too complicated to answer here. Either you're going to have to read the Nebraska Court Rules or you are going to have to hire an attorney to answer your questions.
