These guys sent me a letter trying to collect for a company called Elite Recovery Acquisitions that appears to be defunct and that I've never heard of regarding a credit card from 2003. They have $3900 as the principal and the principal was originally $1500. Is it legal to collect for a defunct company and to give the incorrect principal?

Bud Says                         Consumer Comments Below


Anyone receiving court papers with affidavits by Sue Argentieri are warned her affidavits may be false, bogus, full of hearsay and perjury.  Sue claims to have knowledge on accounts by stating she has care, custody and control of all records concerning account of...

Sue's a LIAR!

She's employed by LVNV Funding - they acquired the account after charge off.  Her statements are hearsay and blatantly false, yet they plead as true in court filings.  This is just another example of lying and using the courts to extort money from consumers.  Sue Argentieri should face criminal prosecution for lying on court papers.

To see how these organizations are structured go to:
All of these bottom-feeders started from the same mold, Sherman/Alegis out of Houston was originally started by Frank S. Russo, Tony M. Ettinger, Thomas E. Upton, Samuel Bergman and Richard Dunn all of Houston, Texas. They purchased old debts for pennies, and then set up collection agencies to collect on them at inflated prices.
As with most bottom-feeders, they have had to resort to placing all accounts on consumer credit reports, inflate the balances and demand settlements. Alegis became Sherman, which became LVNV and now Resurgent and Ventus are all in the bottom-feeder business. They do file lawsuits, most with bogus affidavits and pleadings. They use under-educated employees such as Allison Moon of Greenville, SC to sign affidavits where she lies about the authenticity of accounts (see Allison Moon is a Liar below) in their attempts to give credibility to their bogus pleadings. The problem with liars like Allison B. Moon is she makes statements known to be false. Her swearing is nothing more than hearsay and an attempt to defraud consumers out of monies they may not legally owe, not to mention the fraud she and her organizations bring into the courts. Consumers dealing with these bogus filings and affidavits are urged to challenge their validity in order to avoid becoming another victim to their scam and being ripped off.
You are further urged to go after these bottom-feeders for the lies they place on your credit reports. Under provisions of the federal law, the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) any item placed upon your credit bureau reports MUST be accurate. In my experience, I doubt anything placed by a bottom-feeder could ever meet the legitimacy of that test. Consumers are urged to dispute any LVNV, Sherman, Alegis, Resurgent, Ventus account with the credit bureaus and make demand upon the organizations and their owners to abide by the law. They receive a fat check to lie about things that cause you misery, higher interest rates, credit denials and in most cases, dont have the required documentation that would meet the definition of accurate. All of these owners, board members, attorneys and employees can and should be held strictly responsible when that information does NOT meet the legal definition, as stated by law.
The reason the Allison B. Moons of this industry are getting away with this is because no one is going after her. That can easily change if enough consumers decide they are fed up at being taken advantage of and strike back at these bogus filings, pleadings and credit bureau placements. 
We need to heed the lessons of ENRON and make sure that Allison B. Moon is held accountable when she breaks the law. 

CAUTION: I recommend you NEVER disclose your bank account or credit card information to a debt collector, as you risk them emptying your account, or maxing out your credit card. If you feel they are reporting on your credit bureau files in error or need assistance in dealing with them, email  the details w/your location.  Assistance and referral to a consumer legal specialist may be available.   Email for Assistance 


good luck and fight back

#3 General Comment

You owe nothing

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

This is long past the statute of limitations, if you give them anything as a part payment then and only then will it be current and then they'll sue.

Give them NOTHING send a letter saying it's past Statute of Limitations and to cease communication.

By law they can only send you a compliance letter saying they won't contact you again.

But they will pass it along to another bottom feeder slimebag.

Ignore any threats, they can't do anything but try to scare you. You can't be arrested or garnish your pay, tell them to f*k off and they'll have to stop.
