Assignee or Owner?


Recommended Posts

I believe that "assignee" is commonly used in this context, i.e, a lawsuit, and it means they were not the original creditor. But now Arrow owns it, as they must, in order to sue. They certainly couldn't sue if it was still owned by the original credit card issuer.

Sorry, but there's no misrepresentation here.

Arrow, huh?

I dont know the specifics of your case, but my plan with them would be to challenge their records on this alleged debt. They probably don't have evidence to back up their claim. They are hoping you ignore them or don't show up in court. IMO they are one of the bottom of the barrel JDB's.

Scouse,

Misrepresenting (or causing confusion about) ownership of the debt has been considered a violation of FDCPA by several courts. One such case is Gearing v. Check Brokerage Corp 233 F.3d 469 (7th Cir. 2000) .

Thanks for posting this. I think it's something we can use in our situation.
