Can a Debt Collector Take Everything You Own?
This book is designed to help you understand and prepare for what they’re planning to do.
You'll know what to do to protect yourself as much as possible from what they're planning to do to you.
If the debt collectors find your bank accounts, they can drain them of all your money without a warning, and since the banks don’t tell you what's going on very quickly, you could find yourself with many checks bouncing, racking up huge fees, annoying creditors, and all too often, getting county prosecutors on you for writing bad checks.
If at the same time your wages happen to be garnished, you could be facing a problem that could destroy you financially.
If there is a lawsuit against you that has not reached a judgment, you need to defend yourself. You can do that without hiring an expensive lawyer, by representing yourself pro se. If there's already a judgment, you need to take immediate action to protect yourself. This book will give you some valuable clues and point you to other resources that can help.
Your Legal Leg Up is a website and business designed to help ordinary people defend themselves from debt collectors before or during a lawsuit. Many debt collectors rely on unethical and unfair collections methods that violate the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA), which is the first and best source of debtor rights, among other laws.
