You have legal rights. We can help.


People fall into serious debt for a number of reasons that may not be their fault, but the outcome remains the same: Once an account goes into arrears, creditors will assign them to third-party debt collectors who have the potential to go into overdrive to settle the accounts. If this has happened to you, there may be resources and assistance available to get the calls to stop immediately.

Your Rights Under the FDCPA

The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) places limits on what third-party debt collectors and collection agencies can do while attempting to collect consumer debts. Actions like the following are strictly prohibited:

  • Using profane and obscene language
  • Ignoring a formal request to cease communications
  • Threatening consequences they cannot legally inflict, or have no intention of carrying out
  • Discussing the debt with anyone except you, your spouse, or your attorney
  • Calling at all hours of the day and night
  • Claiming that you owe an amount that’s not supported by law or the original creditor agreement

Alleged Violations against Williams & Fudge, Inc.

Samantha Sharp vs. Williams & Fudge, Inc. et al*

According to PACER, on December 11, 2014, Williams & Fudge, Inc. sent Illinois resident Samantha Sharp a collection letter demanding payment of a debt she allegedly owed to Lewis University. Because she didn’t recognize the debt, Ms. Sharp referred the matter to her attorneys. Accordingly, on December 19, 2014, Ms. Sharp’s attorneys sent Williams & Fudge, Inc. a letter advising it that she was represented by counsel, that she disputed the debt, and demanded validation of it. Despite confirmed receipt of this letter, on January 22, 2015, Williams & Fudge, Inc. allegedly wrote directly to Ms. Sharp and demanded payment of the Lewis University debt.

Feeling harassed by Williams & Fudge, Inc., Ms. Sharp hired a consumer attorney and sued the company for allegedly violating the FDCPA by contacting her directly when she was represented by an attorney.

The matter was later dismissed.
