Who is LVNV Funding/Resurgent Capital Services? Is This A Scam?

Resurgent Capital Services is a debt collect agency based out of Greenville, South Carolina. The agency was founded in 1998. Resurgent focuses on many types of debt, specializing in the credit card and health care industries. The agency is associated with LVNV Funding, who is a debt buyer. This means that they purchase outstanding debt from other companies at a large discount, and then try and collect the full amount of the debt from consumers.

LVNV/Resurgent has received many consumer complaints claiming Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) violations. Some consumer reviews have accused LVNV/Resurgent of making false statements or representations in pursuit of debt collection. Other examples of alleged violations include attempting to collect a debt not owed, threatening to contact an employer and sharing information improperly, and improper communication tactics.

Nonetheless, LVNV/Resurgent is not a scam and they are in fact an authorized debt collection agency. LVNV/Resurgent purchases packages of debt from banks and other businesses, and then tries to collect the debt from consumers. If LVNV/Resurgent has contacted you, it is important that you learn your rights and how best to protect yourself before offering any response.

What Are Common Complaints Against LVNV Funding/Resurgent Capital Services?

As of October 2018, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) has received over 3,600 complaints related to the debt collection practices of Resurgent Capital Services. Examples of common complaints against Resurgent include trying to collect a debt not owed and improper communication tactics.

The following two real-world examples of complaints against Resurgent Capital illustrate these types of alleged violations.

Consumer alleges Resurgent uses improper communication tactics
“The company [Resurgent] calls me at least 10 times a day sometimes in repeated succession back to back. I have advised through representatives to stop calling at this point due to method of harassment and that I would handle the debt through paper correspondence or legal method.”
 
Consumer alleges attempts to collect a debt not owed
“I settled my debt with XXXX XXXX a while back. The debt was resolved. Now, a collection agency name XXXX/Resurgent Capital is reporting this debt on my credit report and trying to collect monies from me. I have told them that I have already settled the debt with XXXX XXXX, but they don’t seem to care. They seem to want me to pay it twice.”

What Actions Can Resurgent Capital Services/LVNV Funding Legally Take Against Me? Can They Sue Me Or Garnish My Wages?

As a debt collector, Resurgent/LVNV is not legally allowed to threaten to sue you, or threaten to garnish your wages. They are allowed to contact you via phone, text, or mail. However Resurgent/LVNV cannot call you at inappropriate times including before 8 a.m. and after 9 p.m.

Though they are not allowed to threaten lawsuit or wage garnishment, if you do not pay a valid debt owed to them, Resurgent/LVNV may legally sue you in a court. If they get a default judgement against you in court, the judgement will state the amount you owe and allow them to garnish your wages for that amount.
