What Types of Situations Result in Debt Collection Lawsuits?

Some of these debts include:
If you fall behind on payments, your creditor has a right to engage in debt collection activity. Creditors often hire a lawyer or collection agency to do the dirty work—harassing phone calls, letters, emails, etc. They are even allowed to contact people you know in an effort to track you down to collect the debt. Jacovetti Law, P.C. can stop the harassment.
