Feferman, Warren & Mattison sues debt collectors for:
- Threatening to bring criminal charges against the debtor, have the debtor arrested, garnish the debtor's wages or foreclose on the debtor's house
- Contacting friends, neighbors or relatives about the debt
- Harassing or obnoxious conduct, such as calling multiple times per day or using racially derogatory language
- Filing a lawsuit when the suit is barred by the statute of limitations (for example, filing a lawsuit to collect on an auto loan after repossession of the auto, where the suit is filed more than 4 years after the last payment was made)
- Contacting the debtor after receipt of a letter that requests the collector cease communication with the debtor or after notice that the debtor is represented by an attorney
- Charging more than the face amount of the check (plus any posted return check fee) in connection with collection of a bounced check
- Reporting the collection on the debtor's credit report, without noting that the debtor disputes the debt.
