Being sued by Portfolio Recovery Associates?
Portfolio Recovery Associates is one the nation's largest debt buyers. Portfolio Recovery Associates makes profit by buying old or discharged debt from banks and other lenders for a fraction of the original amount. Portfolio Recovery Services then tack on years of unpaid interest and fees in an attempt to collect on the entire amount owed. This type of creditor is the worst to deal with as a consumer, as they will try any and all methods to get you to pay even a portion of the debt over several years. Luckily, this type of creditor is also easier for us to fight, as they rarely have all the original paperwork for the outstanding debt.
Portfolio Recovery Services has substantially increased the amount of lawsuits they file to collect delinquent debt, even over small amounts. Portfolio Recovery Associates pays pennies on the dollar to purchase your debt from your original creditor, and they will try every trick in the book to collect. This includes filing lawsuits in the hope you don't respond, and let's Portfolio Recovery Associates receive a default judgment for the entire amount. These lawsuits happen quickly, often occurring after only a few attempts to collect.
