  • Debt Buyers Abusing the Legal System

    Debt buyers are companies who buy debt from other companies who were unable, unwilling or prohibited from collecting those debts from consumers.

    Arbitration is a process where the parties avoid going to court by using a private process to resolve disputes that would otherwise normally end up in court.
