Complaint Review: Weltman, Weinberg & Reis
Weltman, Weinberg & Reis323 W. Lakeside Avenue, Suite 200 Cleveland, Ohio United States of America
Weltman, Weinberg & Reis Weltman, Weinberg & Reis is an unreasonable, unethical and deceptive company. Cleveland, Ohio
I asked how the court process worked since I had never been sued before and they lied to me, and basically insinuated that I could just wait for the court date. WRONG. You have 20 days to respond after being served, if you fail to respond they automatically get a judgement against you. They were obviously hoping I wouldn't figure that out and would sit back and do nothing. In PA they are allowed to levy your bank account and put a lien on your home after they get a judgment against you. Clearly they wanted me to simply let the clock run out so they could do this to me as they've done to countless other poor people.
Weltman, Weinberg & Reis does not purchase debt from the creditor, they actually represent the creditor, in this case Discovercard. They produced original loan documents and monthly bank statements. They have a high success rate for suing people, which is why they love to sue people.
Why would a company take the last couple hundred dollars in your bank account? Greed. Why wouldn't they negotiate with you for a reasonable settlement? Greed. I do not expect anyone to feel sympathy for me, however this is just bad business. You can ask an idiot would you rather have $2,000 or nothing and the idiot would say $2,000 of course. Settlements are common in business and everyone makes settlement agreements. Not this company, they want it all. I had other credit cards and debts too, obviously. I grew tired of the harassment and heavy weight on my shoulders. When your income is cut by over half you have few choices. So I filed bankruptcy, that stopped all collection activity dead in its tracks. They will not be getting a judgment against me and taking the last small amount of money I have to live. So now Weltman, Weinberg & Reis you get nothing. Happy now?
