We recently had the privilege of being retained by consumers in a pair of debt collection lawsuits filed by Mainstreet Acquisition Corporation. We have noticed a trend of Mainstreet Acquisition filing debt collection lawsuits in Central Florida in the past few months. They have been active in purchasing debts originally owed to HSBC Bank Nevada, NA. Their lawsuits have been filed in the Florida County Courts throughout Central Florida. Often, they are represented by the Law Offices of Erskine and Fleisher out of Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
On the surface, their lawsuits appear intimidating. They often include an official-looking alleged Bill of Sale. Sometimes they include a purported “Plaintiff’s Affidavit in Support of Claim”. In some cases, the Complaint or Statement of Claim is prepared in such a way that is very difficult for consumers to understand, including the use of Latin legal phrases.
Despite their appearance, however, our investigation revealed that the debt collection lawsuits filed by Mainstreet Acquisition failed to comply with Florida law. Using our knowledge of Florida statutes and Court Rules, we were able to get both lawsuits dismissed, without our clients having to pay a penny to Mainstreet Acquisitions.
If you have been sued by Mainstreet Acquisitions Corp. in Central Florida, we would be honored if you would choose us to assist you in defending against this debt collector. Even if you have a judgment already entered against you by this company, we may still be able to assist you.
