I have been paying off a debt with BOA to Frederick J Hanna & Associates for 6 months. I paid BOA last month. A rep from Frederick & a*s. called me to confirm a payment. She insisted that I had authorized the payment for August. I told no dear that was July I did not authorize anything past July. I also told her I already paid August. So she tells me oh, ok. I remove the amount you owe and call on 9/12 to set up the payments.

I check my bank account today to find a withdrawal for Fred & a*s. I immediately went to my Bank to make a claim of unauthorized withdrawal and file a fraud case.

I called Fred & a*s. after the Bank to ask what is this UNAUTHORIZED withdrawal on my account. The rep is telling me hold on a minute and that she needs to look it up. I told her that I have the check sitting in front of me. I repeatedly had to tell her that I did not authorize YOU to withdraw anything from my account for August. She keeps telling me that she has records that I told her it would be there by the end of the month. I told no I told you I already paid this month YOU are NOT Authorized for anything.
She put me on hold and I went to voice mail.

Now I get a call back right after I leave a message. Still insisting that I authorized the withdrawal. I told her I have everything written down and I know d**n right well what I authorized and what I did not. I also expressed one last time that You withdrew money from my account without authorization which is fraud. She tells me no its not. What the hell is misrepresenting yourself to someone's bank and taking their money without consent called then?

After this long ordeal I was told that my funds would be returned. I have gotten a phone call from someone else from this law firm which I chose not to answer and finish typing this. I am sure it more of the same BS.

#1 Consumer Comment

More Info. vs. Hanna

AUTHOR: HannaH8R - (USA)

It looks like Rip Off Report redacted my links on how to fight debt collector lawsuits for Hanna and Zwicker, and for help blogs.  For help with the lawsuits you can do a Google search for a book and website by Allen Harkleroad titled Stick it to sue happy debt collectors.  The help blog I linked is Next Level Unlimited Credit.  I do not have any stake in any of these sites, I am just posting to try to help other consumers.  I do understand why Rip Off Report redacts links however.

#2 Consumer Comment

Info. vs. Hanna

AUTHOR: HannaH8R - (USA)

The Georgia Supreme Court says Hanna is a "law firm," so you have to submit a bar complaint vs. them (and not a consumer complaint with the state OCA or federal FCC -- but fine if you do that too anyway).  You may submit a bar complaint vs. Fred Hanna (the owner of the "firm") and any atty. that may have contacted you that also violated bar rules for atty.s:

(Call and ask for a bar complaint, and if they have them online):

State Bar of Georgia
104 Marietta St. NW, Suite 100
Atlanta, Georgia 30303
(404) 527-8700
(800) 334-6865
FAX: (404) 527-8717

RE:  Request for Validation of Debt, 15 U.S.C. 1692g

Dear Sir or Madam:

This is my formal notice that I am disputing this debt, and requesting immediate validation under Section 809 of the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, 15 U.S.C. 1692g, of the debt from your office.  I am requesting that your office immediately send me a copy of the following documents: (a) the name, address, and phone number of an employee of the original creditor that can validate the debt, (b) proof of who is the current legal owner of the debt, and that you represent the original creditor or debt buyer, and (c) the original signed note, contract, credit agreement, or instrument creating the debt.

I am disputing this debt for the following reasons:  this debt has not been validated.  I do not know whether your debt collection company is the legal owner of this debt or not, or if the amounts charged are valid.

This is also my formal notice under 15 U.S.C. 1692c, to you to cease all further communications with me, my family members, and my associates and all third parties, unless I give you express permission to do so.  You have my express permission to mail me the requested validation documents to the address listed below, but I do not give you permission to contact me over the phone, or in any other way except as specifically addressed in this letter.
This letter is not meant in any way to be an acknowledgment that I owe this money.


John Doe
P.O. Box 0000
Atlanta, GA  30300

#3 Consumer Suggestion

File a police report for theft, and also a Bar Association complaint for the ethics violation.

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

Don't let these morons get away with that crap!

See my posts here on ROR on Fred Hanna and his band of misfits.

I filed a Bar Association complaint against him.

Get a copy of the fraud complaint you filed with your bank and then send that along with your complaint to to the police dept in the jurisdiction of Hanna.

Get the FBI involved too as it is interstate fraud.

Stay off the phone. Do everything in writing and send only by certified mail, return reciept requested. Keep copies of all letters and put the certified # on each letter before copying and sending.

Nail these pricks to the wall, and then put someone in jail where they belong.
