Pressler & Pressler, Foster and Garbus, and Cohen & Slamowitz among several New York debt collection firms sued by Attorney General

Hey Folks:

Remember when you would get some sort of notice from a court about an old debt and you had no idea you were being sued in the first place?  Remember how you claimed that you never were served with any court papers?  Well there may be a good shot you were right.  Here is a link to the New York State Attorney General website, listing an investigation into debt collection firms and the process servers they use.  In a nutshell the AG is stating that many of these so called “process servers” werent serving at all, and were instead filing fraudulent papers with the court.  Furthermore, the AG is looking to invalidate many of the judgments entered against creditors, because countless people may have been sued without being given the proper notice required.
