Owner of shady debt collection agency in Atlanta area is arrested

Judge Gavel, Scales of Justice and legal books on the desk

Atlanta residents who struggle with debt may be surprised to learn that federal law actually bans debt collectors from threatening and harassing debtors. Many debtors in Georgia have been subjected to creditor harassment and other illegal debt collection tactics, without knowing that they are protected from such treatment by law. When a person begins to face wage garnishment, liens or aggressive communications from debt collectors, it can be critical to contact a debt relief and bankruptcy attorney in order to protect one’s rights.

The owner of one ruthless debt collection company in Cobb County was recently arrested in the wake of shuttering her company; the company went out of business after CBS Atlanta began reporting on the aggressive measures the company was taking in order to collect debts. Gov. Nathan Deal’s Office of Consumer Protection is now investigating the company.

The owner of the company has told CBS in the past that she fired some of her employees who were being too aggressive in their efforts to collect debts. The measures reportedly included scaring debtors into paying money that they did not even owe, and using legal jargon to confuse and worry debtors. 

The woman has now been arrested in an unrelated case, according to CBS, which involves allegations of fraudulently collecting unemployment insurance.

While this company has closed down, there are others out there like it. Those who are subjected to this type of harassment do have rights and options. It is important to talk to a reputable attorney in order to understand one’s options and get out from underneath debt and harassment.

    They did an excellent job with my case. Jamie took the time to really listen and understand things. She delved into the details and was extremely knowledgeable and non judgmental. Very professional and they know what they are doing. Would definitely recommend!

    Dear Mr Gingold, There are so many reasons to be thankful for all you have done and will do. Anyone who has ever had unfavorable experiences with an attorney or the legal system will feel the trepidation that I experienced once I realized that my situation seemed hopeless. It was by chance and happily good luck that I decided to put my future and sanity into your hands. I was mortified at having to deal with my debts by claiming bankruptcy. I remember in our first meeting how you assured me that I was not alone and should not feel ashamed. And, anyone in this position obviously does not have money to spare and you were clear about all the costs and allowing me to pay according to my own ability to do so. You advised me in all aspects of the law, but also, you were at each meeting incredibly supportive and complementary of my personal and professional plans. Anyone else in this situation should feel blessed to have access to your expertise and support.

    I thought the process of filing bankruptcy was going to be a difficult one. However, Gingold & Gingold treated me with respect and dignity from the moment I walked through their door. I had the pleasure of working with Jamie. She is very responsive, professional, and knowledgeable. She took the time and listened to my every concern and handled each and every one of them to my satisfaction. My experience with filing bankruptcy under Gingold & Gingold's representation exceeded my expectations in a major way. They gave me such a peace of mind. I am very pleased with my decision of going with Gingold & Gingold to represent me when I filed Chapter 13 bankruptcy.

    Wow! I am finally out of debt and can say that I am debt free after completing my chapter 7 bankruptcy case with Gingold and Gingold. Mr dangled was very knowledgeable and direct with regard to my debt situation. there were no surprises and the case went as I was advised. The staff was also very helpful whenever I had a question. I will definitely recommend them in the future to my friends.

    I contacted getting old and getting old regarding some old tax debt and credit card debt that I needed to address and had been putting off. miss Irving in the office was very very nice and put me at ease. I met with Jaime Gingold. She was very nice and explained the procedure to me and what would be left owing to the Internal Revenue Service and the State of Georgia after my case was done. My case has now been completed and I am on my way to a new start. Thank you Gingold and Gingold for all of your help.
