Alleged Violations against Seneca Mortgage Servicing

According to PACER, in or around October 2014, an Illinois consumer checked his credit report and saw that Seneca Mortgage Servicing, under the name of AMS, reported to the Experian credit bureau that there was a balance of $386,698 on an old mortgage loan.

This matter had already been dealt with in an earlier foreclosure action, and the judge had specified that the creditor did not receive a deficiency judgment.

Feeling harassed by Seneca Mortgage Servicing, the consumer engaged legal counsel and sued the agency for:

  • Reporting incorrect information to the credit bureaus
  • Using false, deceptive, and misleading means to collect a debt
  • Misrepresenting the legal status of the debt

The matter was later settled on a later date.
