Was never served and currently being illegally garnished

stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full
I received an order of garnishment for 25 percent on 1-5-17. The address I was supposedly served is a place I haven't lived in 10 years. I am sole provider for a family of 5 so 25 percent is illegal to take. I've tried repeatedly to get ahold of them to no avail. Looks like I'll be part of the growing number of people suing them

This company lies both to Judge as Defender.This company ,(Elfman Elfman and Cooper,) can not produce documents. They intimidate the Defener.

Michele White in Coral Gables, Florida works for Elfman Elfman and Cooper very unprepared when she comes to court. This is a million dollar company that buys old Debts for pennies.

Eltman Eltman Cooper - Debt Collection Review from Bronx, New York

stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full
Hello, I'm seeking information that can help also a lawyer if possible. I've been a victim of identity theft for many years & recently received mail about a NY Unclaimed funds. I tried to receive the funds but found out a NY Marshall office collected a debt from the year 2002. I contacted the Marshalls who collected a Fraudulent debt and was told their case has moved on to a law firm by the names of (Eltman & Cooper). I was sent at first on a railroad runaround till I finally got a real contact for this law firm. When I explained to them you collected my earnings but should've investigated that i was a victim of identity theft they explained they would clear my name and refund my unclaimed funds. They said there located in New Jersey so there isn't a need for me to come in (Lie no.1). They said there gonna mail me a packet of identity theft and for me to fill out, Well one month went by and no pack at came so I recalled and same note they'll send it. Three months so far and nothing. I tried calling today and was talked to extremely rude by a worker/lawyer I'm assuming. I was told I'm the blame and my post office behind my address? But how's that? They never mailed anything. Then I find out this company lied to me about their location which is actually right here in NYC ? Its been a long stressful story and the amount of my Unclaimed fund is from what was told a decent amount over 4,000 I believe but I asked how can someone collect a persons debt with no real evidence. My debt had to do with a stolen identity credit card in my name in a state I never lived in. I told them also explained I have paperwork from those years to prove, also identity theft proof and paperwork from my credit bureau in the timeframe of the year they claimed I owed. Due to me speaking and letting them know this was a fraud act and in my own words (A scintilla of evidence) they got impatient and very rude and placed me on hold for almost a half hour?. So I hung up, still waiting for a fraud packet, was lied to about office location and to top off no help?. I'm seeking help or a lawsuit against this situation and know I have Perfect Evidence to show for. If possible I'm seeking help/advice thank you. Im sending to a lawyer as a civil case!

How do t contact you. The Altman number is out of service.

I work at the firm and would like to help you resolve this. Unfortunately this sounds like a complicated situation involving numerous issues going back well over 10 years.

If you call the main line 212-660-****, please ask for our Disputes Department, and I will give them a heads on this issue to make sure it gets resolved ASAP. I'm not sure why you were told that we are located in NJ, but either way we do not allow for in-person visits for compliance reasons. I apologize that you have had difficulty in resolving this.

We deal with such a large number of consumers that at times, despite our best intentions, we have complications in getting to the bottom of complicated issues like this. When calling the main desk, please reference this "pissedconsumer.com" review to make sure you get the urgent attention that I will direct the folks who can help you to give you.

File # 4196P05969

There is no way this debt can be paid. Over the years all tax returns have been taken, which probably doesn't even cover the interest. It has put a hardship on Wayne Miles due to his inability to work. He has lost both legs below the knees. He has less than a $1,000.00 income per month. He counted on tax returns to help him. There is no reason to file taxes any more, it will never settle the debt. He pays over $500.00 per month rent. Due to his credit. he cannot live in a less expensive apt.

Illegal garnishments

eltman,eltman and cooper set an illegal garnishment against me by putting john doe and my name connected. How the heck do they get away with this!?? low income people who are in debt dont have the tools or finances to fight back. is there anyone out there who knows of a way to stop these jerks from doing this to unsuspecting people? I want to know how the courts allow these people to get away with this. i saw something about a class action suit against them but it didnt give a link as to how to contact and be a part of this suit. any help would be appreciated!

These creditors are all about money, and they don't give a *** how they get it, or what effect it has on you. The attorney for this company is a heartless, well you know what.

I hope every dime they collect from peoples they choke on it.

They best way of beating them at their game is consider filing bankruptcy or have a good attorney. However, I did find someone that use to work for them, he left them because of the way they do business, what that tell you.

Guest

It is clear the previous post must come from either a collector or an attorney who would prefer not to help people , but to try to inflict additional issues to someone going through hard times.

TO MYLIFE: Most major cities DO have attorneys who will help you with fighting the bottom feeding collectors. Look under consumer protection in either the yellow pages or the internet. GOOD LUCK!

Guest

Do you owe the money? If yes, then pay your bills as you stated you would and are contractually obliged to do. If you don't, provide proof to the company and I'm sure they will rescind the garnishment.

Commit's FRAUD lawsuits to get default judgments: Eltman, Eltman & Cooper w/Erin Capital Management

Eltman, Eltman & Cooper with Erin Capital Management commit illegal collection actions to make money on old charged-off credit cards; they purchase from other debt collection agencys, obtain credit reports on consumers with old credit card debts that's been charged-off and they will file a lawsuit and serve you with alternative servive at your previous address so that they can show the court that as if you never responded, when you already living at another place. They will request for a default judgment against you even though you've never been physically served nor been contacted by mail at your current address, because they show the court that you were served at your previous address and can just leave the documents to whoever lives at your previous address. This is their strategy and numerous consumers including myself have been violated and currently filing a lawsuit against them. You have to file a lawsuit, as you are not the only person that have been violated. As for people making comments about being dead beats and paying bills, well that person most likely would only say that if they work for this firm. And this person probably have experienced and not know how it feels to experience being terminated from your job so that the company would not have to pay for your medical insurance because you have been diagnosed with a pre-cancer illness that requires immediate surgery in order to save my life. If you get sick and lose your job, have no income and can't work until you get better from your illness,you can't even get another job because you are too sick to work, so then you can't pay your mortgage, car loan and credit cards. So I guess getting over stressed from your and get terminated for being diagnosed with pre-cancer makes me a dead beat because I lose my job and don't have to pay my bills. Well thank you very much. I hope you don't get sick and lose your job 2 days after you are diagnosed with pre-cancer illness.

Eltman,Eltman & Cooper

These are low life *** debt collectors who go to court and say they served you papers and didn't. Then they get a judgment against you, freeze your bank account, and then garnish your wages. There are many on this site and on ripoffreport.com who have been wronged by these low life's. We must all get together and fight back!! Contact me at EltmanRevenge@***.com for information on a major class action suit. This company is owned by Erin Capital Mgt. These *** are debt buyers. And currently this is a $30 Billion a year industry. Erin has millions from collecting from people illegally. And we intend to get every penny of it.

YOU WOULDNT BE GARNISHED YOU WOULD STILL HAVE YOUR PERSONAL AND REAL PROPERTY AND YOUR BANK ACCOUNT...IT'S YOUR OWN FAULT OR SHOULD I SAY LACK OF CARE OR UNINFORMED BY LISTENING TO THE ATTORNEY THAT NOW HAVE YOUR MONEY AND YOU STILL OWE THE DEBT...WHO HAVE THE NICE CAR CONDO FOR HIS MISTRESS AND HOUSE FOR HIS WIFE THE SAME ATTY THAT PUT YOU HERE....

Guest

You guys call yourself debt collectors?? Cant even speak proper English is debt collectors?

I have citibank account but For some reason I had another citibank account. Same types of accounts. I paid off one thinking its the one I opened. 2 years later I had a so called judgement for a citibank account tthat went to court and need to be paid...

Imagine that approve for 2 accounts with the same company?. Fraud! I paid the judgement because I cared for my credit.. Before taking my money EEC assured they would contact my credit bureau to *** the judgement..

4 yrs now.. Nothing I had to do it my self..

Believing these crooks!,, u might as well burn down your own house! Do it yourself people!, deal with your cc company or just consolidate your debt the crooks just hang up on them.

Guest

I don't understand all of the comments on this site. Why don't you people pay your bills on time.

If you can't afford what you are buying on credit why don;t you stop bying things on credit.

All you are doing is driving up the cost of goods for the ret of us who get this ... pay our bills.
