I have been receiving notifications from Financial Recovery Services, Minneapolis, MN and from Alegis Group LP starting in February of this year on what they say is an account seriously past due that has to be paid in full for the amount of $2,299.50

Right away, I submitted a dispute to FRS requesting verification of debt and name and address of credit grantor.

Weeks later I received yet another note, this time from Alegis Group LP, Greenville, SC stating, This account was purchased by Sherman Acquisition LP and placed with Alegis Group LP for servicing. We have received your recent inquiry regarding this account and are in the process of investigating your claim. Once a determination is made, we will contact you with the results of our research.

It's been almost three months since I submitted the request for verification of debt and I haven't received any record of the original debtor.

Last Friday, May 6th I received another note saying, Information you provided regarding this account has been forwarded to the Customer Service Department for research (which basically is what they told me previously) However, we have been unable to contact you to discuss this account. If we are unable to establish contact with you within 15 days from the date of this letter, this account will return to the Collection Department and active collection efforts will resume for your account.

In my best interest I've been trying to get in touch with them over the telephone in several occasions this week. I even left a voice mail with a phone number for them to reach me to discuss this issue, but the person that is supposedly handling this account is always on the other line' or out to lunch' so I have to take it as the phone calls are being ignored.

I have no record that I owe anything to Household guitar center, I have never had any dealings with them and don't even know them and as the name that appears in the statement is not even my legal name, I am being lead to believe that this is just a case of mistaken identity and therefore, I'm asking them to cease all inquires requesting payment from me with this collection process and to dismiss the case.

Today, I decided to check their name on the web and I bump into your website. Judging by the information that is coming up about the dealings of these groups I'm taking action in reporting this incident with you and perhaps will need to get some legal assistance to try to solve this matter and to make sure that I don't fall victim of faudulent billing.

#1 Consumer Suggestion

Sherman/Alegis Rip Off ..This company recently also started doing business as NVLV out of Las Vegas. organised crime

AUTHOR: Harry - (U.S.A.)

This company recently also started doing business as NVLV out of Las Vegas. In any other terms they'd be called organised crime. Keep an eye on credit reports. They are also fond of illegally re-ageing old debts.

They are also known to litigate on debts that are far past statues of limitations (hoping that you won't show up) to get a default judgment.

Never talk to them on the telephone (unles you are recording), only communicate by mail. You can find a violation of the FDCPA in almost every letter you get from them. When the debt purchasing industry id finally brought to light in government, etc. I'd bet that this is one of the first companies to go down, with even jail terms for the higher-ups.

Palasicades a scamwer

FOLKS THESE PEOPLE IF YOU LOOK AT YOUR COLLECTION LETTERS HAVE ABOUT 25 LAW FIRMS UNDER THEIR HEADINGS.AND CREDIT COLLECTION SERVICES TOO.

THEY ARE ALL LOCATED IN THE SAME BUILDING IN NORTH CAROLINA.

I GOT THEIR PAPERS ONA OLD CREDIT CARD I DID NOT PAY OFF DUE TO FRAUD BYT THE CREDIT CARD COMPANY.THE CARD COMPANY WAS INVOLVED WITH CRIMINAL CONSUMER FRAUD AND WAS TAKEN TO COURT IS A CLASS ACTION LAW SUIT.

IN FACT THE CREDIT CARD COMPANY LOST 3 LAW SUITS BACK TO BACK,AND WAS FOR ALL PEOPLE THAT HAD ACCOUNTS DATING BACK TO THE YEAR 2000.

I was in all three of the courts,and class actions and then closed and told the company about their loose in feceral district court.

Since that time I am a disabled Veteran,and this law firm started to write and call me WELL I PUT stop on them too real fast. I wrote them and showed them the law suits and court papers as to the losses in court and did a cease and desist on not only their main law firm but all companies,lawyers,and collection agencies and if they contacted me again i would sue them under the ADA laws and rules. Also this firm was going to ake out money from my bank account and take me to court. Well, as a disabled veteran there is a law under federal rules CFR-38 , that all collections for disabled veterans can not be garnished,stolen, released, tranferred,or collected upon. I even wrote my bank BOA and let them know about CFR-38 and the law too which is in my file.

Haven't heard a word form these people in months either. I did respond to every letter as to a DISPUTE too and not to contact me cause of the Federal calass action lawsuits where the credit card was found to be GUILTY of Numerous Charges,and fraud agasint the card holders Nationwide. I found that the credit card company had lost to the law firm at www.bigclassaction. com

Hope this helps others.

#3 Consumer Suggestion

Federal Trade Commission Issue!

AUTHOR: Catherine - (U.S.A.)

I was referred to this site from a friend after I told him FRS (Financial Recovery Services) had been calling & leaving their toll free number, but then when I returned their call per their request, they said they were looking for "John Souza" and would hang up on me. Their activity strikes me as odd, to say the least. Especially using telemarketing tools to "search" for an individual.

Now, after reading the above reports, I am convinced this company--and their affiliantes--is conducting their "business" inappropriately, maybe even illegally. So, if I may suggest to all those who are having problems with this company to contact the Federal Trade Commission and/or the Federal Communications Commission, and regarding the letters received from FRS, the U.S. Postal Inspector General's Office to report mail fraud. Here's some helpful Websites: www.ftc.gov, www.fcc.gov, www.usps.com. Go to the government Websites' "consumer protection" pages to get info on how to report this company.

Good luck to you all!

They are all the same company

AUTHOR: Ken - (U.S.A.)

Joseph: Please dont fall for this con.

Sherman Financial GP, Alegis GP LP, LVNV Funding, Ventus Capital Services and Resurgent Capital Services are all the same company.

Address: 15 s. Main St, Suite 600, Greenville SC 29601. FAX #(864) 678-8794.

Resurgent Capital Services, may try to send you a "Original Affidavit of Debt" as verification of debt, (it is not worth the paper it is written on. Demand a signature card or a copy of the sell with your signature on it. Chances are they cant. If you can FAX your demand to them also and keep the record of the Fax.

Good Luck

Another threat from Financial Recovery Services

AUTHOR: Joseph - (U.S.A.)

Back in the last part of June, I received yet another "initial notification" from FRS stating: 'LVNV Funding LLC has acquired your above-referenced account and the current servicer of account, Resurgent Capital Services, Inc. has place it with this agency for collection.'

As they have done before, they give the same treatment by changing company names to make it sound very serious matter.

Today July 21, I have placed with them, yet another dispute on the validity of the debt or any portion thereof and "m requesting them to obtain verification of debt as well as name and address of the original credit grantor.

The first time I did, they never sent any replies and I'm sure I won't get any this time either.

A company with just a P. O. Box and no physical address is not to be trusted.

This is just another cheap shot at trying to get people's money by scarring them with "legal notices"

My next step is to get a lawyer to come after them for fraudulent billing.

Financial Recovery Services, what a big SCAM
