Marval and Associates. The settlement was great.

1k overnighted. 500/mo for the next 12 months settlement contract with acceleration clause (yes they set up a payment arrangement with me).

400 something dollar debt erased.

CRA reporitng deleted

42 dollar check with "Life, The Universe, and Everything" in the memo line

Documentation of FDCPA compliance training no later than April 31st 2010.

Whole thread was outlined on debtorboards and it's now the second google hit when you search Marval and Associates without quotations. DB thread:

To see the saga please read the old posts.

We agreed to a confidentiality clause for the amount, but EACH COMPANY ended up paying, sort of. Midland settled and made Bursey and Associates pay for the claim against them.

So in the end we got our home, we got our credit report corrected including the erroneous TL removed and we got a very nice check from Bursey and Associates.

All I can say is sometimes the little guy does win and if you are willing to stand up for yourself in the end it is worth it.

Anyone dealing with any JDB or variation there of does themselves a great disservice if they don't know their rights and assert and enforce them.

More money, I will be sure to let you know if this goes to a class action. Did you read my thread linked above? My case with them stems from a Sprint account as well.

I've had a sheriff go out to a collection agency with a writ of execution on a judgment the CA refused to pay. He walked out with a check. :)

Running up against Palisades Collection... Yeah those bottom feeders. Well, this is my first time and I expect to have the judgment vacated. The contradictions in their own paperwork is ridiculous! These guys total clowns... and their parent co Pressler and Pressler are worse.

I actually put this post up in another thread. I won my case against Palisades Collections, LLC. in federal court today and got 5k to boot.

Couldn't have done it without you guys.

Thanks.

Outstanding! I'm glad you slammed those SOBs in court.

Thank You! It only took less than an hr to do so. The attorney needed to step out & call Erica Brachfeld, let her know he was losing...lol He was squirming when the judge kept asking him where Ashley Hoffman *witness/affiant* was. He even asked the judge for a continuance! HAHA!! 8-) So I won b/c Ashley didn't respond to the subpeona Calawyer told me to get. I got it in at the last minute. 11 days til trial. It felt grt!!!

I also was awarded my court cost & cost for the process server. So that was awesome!! :wink:

I haven't told him anything. He really steered me in the wrong direction. I am so happy I listened to my gut feeling. Came here & made some unselfish 'real' friends!!

LoveYouGuys!!! :waah::waah::waah::waah:

I can't mention their name (confidentiallity agreement), but they are a real "Asset" to the JDB community. Filed all of my paperwork, and within 3 weeks they sent me a Mutual release notice. I was relieved to get my first win. Working on a case with Advantage Assets right now. Nothing attached to complaint. Not even the bogus affidavit or a statement. Hoping to actually get a settlement offer on this one. Maybe my first check if I work it right. Really good FDCPA and other violations.

Thanks to the community with a special thanks to BV80, who got me focused early on.
