When dealing with crooked companies look for federal laws to sue (FCRA, TCPA, etc.)
Recently, I was speaking with a client about some bad conduct that a company was doing to him. He was upset about this conduct, and rightfully so.
But when we looked at the situation legally, what the company was doing was not actually illegal. It was dishonorable, unprofessional, but technically not illegal.
So, I suggested he pull his credit reports.
Once we pulled his report and started looking over the details – payment history, balance, etc. – we realized that these were inaccurate.
We had a bad, crooked company doing bad things. But under Alabama law, there was no protection against this behavior.
Sometimes companies do bad things that are not illegal.
We recognized that if they were crooked in one way, they would likely be crooked in another way.
These violations can provide us with an avenue by which to sue the bad company and get damages for our client.
So, if you find yourself dealing with a company that you know is bad but what they are doing is technically not illegal, dig deeper.
We may find that they are violating the law in other ways.
This is how we can drop the hammer on these corrupt companies.
Then, their bad behavior is simply icing on the cake when presenting the case to a judge.
Pull your credit report – then build the case on top of the laws they have violated.
We recommend that you pull your credit reports regularly. Right now you can get your credit report weekly for free through AnnualCreditReport.com. Review your credit reports. Look for discrepancies. If you find errors, dispute them.
If the issue does not get fixed you may have a lawsuit to file.
