I woke up yesterday morning to find my bank account overdrawn by almost $5000 and when I called BANK OF AMERICA, they instructed me to contact Mullooly, Jeffrey, Rooney & Flynn-an alleged law firm in the Long Island, NY area. The law firm was representing a company called ARROW FINANCIAL who I had NEVER done business with. They had apparently put a restriction on my BoA bank account.

I consulted with an attorney and found out that what had probably happened was that ARROW FIN. bought an old debt (I question the validity of that debt too) and then retained Mullooly, Jeffrey, Rooney & Flynn to sue me for the debt. They then falsified some documents to make it look like I had been served with a summons IN PERSON and had not appeared in court at a date that was in the summons. They then got a DEFAULT judgement because I was not in court. Again, just to clarify-I WAS NEVER SERVED WITH THE SUMMONS SO I DID NOT GET THE INFORMATION AND SO I DID NOT SHOW UP TO COURT. (At the time the summons was supposedly served to me (March 2008) in person, I had moved out of state (I moved a month prior) and have a lease and hotel bills to show for it!)

The proof that I actually recieved the summons stated that I was a MALE (I'm a female), that I was 5'5 (I'm 5'8 and usually look like I'm 5'10 because I am laways in heels), it also stated that I was 115 pounds (I'm actually closer to 180 pounds!).

I got all the information from the City court that all these documents were filed in and am now in the process of filing an "order to vacate judgement".

In summary:
1. My bank account is frozen so I do not have access to close to $3000 of MY money
2. Mullooly, Jeffrey, Rooney & Flynn committed fraud when they said that I was served with a summons IN PERSON
3. The debt is from a company that I have never done business with

Once they have re-opened the case, I plan to report Mullooly, Jeffrey, Rooney & Flynn to the New York State Bar association and I may take it further by suing them because of all the expenses that I am incurring dealing with this mess.

IF anyone else has had a problem similar to this regarding either the law firm of Mullooly, Jeffrey, Rooney & Flynn OR Bank of America please respond.

I know that Bank of America also has some very suspicious methods because they seem to sympathize with the creditors/law firms more than their own clients (account holders). Also, everytime a restriction is put on a bank account, BANK OF AMERICA benefits because they apply every fee that they can possibly think of!

SO, AGAIN IF YOU HAVE HAD A PROBLEM WITH EITHER BANK OF AMERICA OR THIS LAW FIRM WE CAN START A CLASS ACTION LAW SUIT!

I WILL NOT TAKE THIS LYING DOWN-I PLAN TO GET MY MONEY BACK AND I PLAN TO BE REIMBURSED FOR EVERY FEE THAT I HAVE PAYED OR WILL PAY BY THE TIME THAT THIS IS OVER!

If anyone has any suggestions or addtional information, I would like to hear from you.

Same problem

AUTHOR: gizmo - (United States of America)

Hi

I have the same problem with Mulloney, Jeffrey, Rooney, Flynn.  I called the ATTY General on them and FDC. The Atty General is sending out a complaint form for me to fill out.  Any one who has had an issue and wants to make a difference contact the ATTY General at  General Helpline: 1-800-771-7755 back.  There are many collection law firms being investigated because of these problems. I am lucky to have a lawyer in my family which still has not made this mess any easier. But what about people who have no clue they broke the law. Please contact me if you have been in this situation with these guys.

 

Thanks

Mullooly, Jeffrey, Rooney & Flynn - unethical debt collecting

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

I had same situation- They pretend that they served you, (twice) - consumer is a no-show in civil court-they get the judgement, send it to all banks in NY-and sheriff- to freeze you assets if any are there. I am curious has to how many "orders to vacate" have been filed against them in last 3 years. with the same scenario-(cirmustance for circumstance). However, the debt that they claimed against me, was from 1988, - Im so glad I never throw anything out...In my mortgage documents was a statement drom the original company, that this was in error. So, I too filed a "show cause", - but with a Counter-suit.

I then - served them. (with the answer, a copy of the document that I kept--thank goodness, and asked that they give me, all charges for returned items, send statements to my creditors explaining them as the cause for returned items, -- loss of interest, pain and suffering, as a single mom, head of household, who did not have access to any funds during they time it took to file and get notice to show cause. as I said to judge, (I have in my possession a valid legal document proving this not to be a debt, and it is from the original creditor) So, who were they representing? and if they had sent any notice, I would have simply produced the document. So this proved, a. they never served anything. b. they were working off some bogus details from 1988....and it was 2008. The Attorney General needs to look into MJRF. Now!

Problem with the same company. I have no idea what is going on please someone help.

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

I am having problems with this company as well. Today I tried to get an apartment, and when they ran my credit they reported this and told me it looks extremely suspicious. I haven't lived in New York since a brief stay in 2003, never in schenectady where they say this happened, and have never heard of Mullooly, Jeffrey, Rooney, and Flynn until today when I found out some charge they bought from someone I've never heard of for $864 in 2003 jumped to over $3,000 dollars in February 2009. I am unable to get in touch with anyone in their offices, and am really confused and kind of freaking out about this whole thing. If anyone can help please I could really use it.

Thank You
David

Order To Show Cause (Vacate)

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

Nikki:

Now in the same situation you were in, we'll be engaging our attorney, already sent a certified letter to plaintiffs attorney to validate debt, and will be going to the Court's clerk office in the to get all paperwork submitted that awarded them a default judgement

How did you go about filing the 'order to vacate judgement'? Did you get the paperwork or form from the clerk's office and if so, how much to obtain and/or file? Can it be done via certfied letter to the Court, attorney, and Marshal's office?

And this was done on your own, right? No attorney?

Like to do some legwork on my own before fully working with our attorney, any helpfull webites out there in regards on filling the order to vacate?

BTW, for you New Yorkers, can we file 'Claim of Exemption' and 'Financial Statements; against the Earnings Witholding Order (EWO) in order to either eliminate or lower wage garnishment?

Thanks in advance...

I did get a check

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

J G Shrugged,Austin, Texas, U.S.A.---Please check your facts. I did get a check for aprox $1000 from the "law firm" without doing any of the things that you say would make it possibe for me to get the check. I called the "law firm" and basically told them that I knew that they had committed both fraud and perjury and on top off all that, they had a case of mistaken identity. I write a letter to them detailing all the expenses that I incurred dealing with THEIR mess (time off work, gas for travel to and from the city court house, attorney phone consulation fees etc) and I got a check for 900 and something dollars!
The reason why they paid the money is that they knew that if I sued them, which I had every right to do, they would end up paying me. They never served me with a summons, so by claiming that they did, and getting a judgement, they had committed perjury. Also, on the fake summons that I supposedly signed, there was a signature so one of then committed fraud by signing on my behalf and the list goes on. They knew that if they had to answer to all those charges in court, they would be in a very bad situation. If they are indeed attorneys, they could be disbarred. I reported them to BBB, FTC and the Attorney General AFTER they sent me my check.

In summary, if this happens to you, the first step is to get a copy of the judgement from the court house. More often than not, they will have claimed that they served you with a summons even though they didn't. Check the debt to see if it is even yours or if it has not exceeded the statute of limitations. We have an obligation to pay our debts(if indeed we have incurred them) but we all need to abide by the laws and companies like Arrow Financial, Mulloly Jeffrey et al tend to ignore the rules and bully people because they count on YOUR ignorence.

I am more than happy to answer any more questions about this matter---I am not an attorney or any legal professional but I took it upon myself to eduacte myself about this matter and in the end, I won the battle!

go to www.budhibbs.com

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

read what this consumer advocate has to say about Arrow Financial.

The website exposes the nasty ILLEGAL TRICKS Collections use. So collection agencies do not want you to know about this site

Some of those tricks used include phony service on summons as you experienced and falsefied documents filed with the courts. YES they use those illegal tactics in court as well.

Nikki, did you get a check from them?

AUTHOR: J G Shrugged - (U.S.A.)

It makes no sense that they would agree to it.

Also, you would probably have no standing to sue them separately for this - all the default judgment does is start the counter back to zero - on the original court case. So they would serve interrogatories, etc. You would probably need to file a counterclaim against them in the same lawsuit, otherwise you're probably out of luck since the original matter would have been adjudicated. Did you see a local attorney?

same people came after me

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

i had the exact same thing happen to me..yesterday i woke up checked my bank

account.and there was a lean on it from the mullooly people..i didnt owe anybody

any money,as a matter of fact i have proof that i paid all my debts..and i also

never dealt with the arrow company either..apparently mullooly have an imaginary

account that i owe..so they over drew my bank account by almost five thousand

dollars..i spoke to a man named mr.bar from the mullooly firm he told me he was

the attorney handling my case..i had a friend of mine who is an attorney call

them ..and come to find out mr.bar is not an attorney,my friend asked to speak to

a attorney who works there and no one could give him a straight answer,then

they told him that there weren't any attorneys persently in the office so they

would have to call him back.but no one ever did...i would appreciate any help u

can offer and i hope maybe i was of some assistance...

UPDATE ON MULLOOLY JEFFRY & FLYNN AND ARROW FINANCIAL

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

NIKKI-LOWELL< MA

So I filed the "order to vacate judgement" and my bank account was unfrozen and all the charges assesed by BOA were reversed. It took hours of telephone conversation, 3 or 4 trips to the local branch, dealing with the Court in Albany, Telephone consulation with attorneys and a lot of research, but it was all worth it in th end when about 5 days later I started to see the money come back.

Mullooly Jeffrey and Flynn have agreed to reimburse me for all expenses incurred because of this mess and am still waiting on my check-I will re-post when/if I get it. (check amount = almost $1000)

IF I DO NOT GET THIS CHECK WITHIN THE NEXT WEEK, I WILL SUE BOTH ARROW FINANCIAL AND THIS LAW FIRM AND I WILL REPORT BOTH OF THEM TO EVERY AUTHORITY THAT I CAN FIND; BBB, FTC, NEW YORK STATE BAR, JUST TO MENTION A FEW.
