Unifund Lawsuits – Have they sued you?
Have you received a collection letter from Unifund? or a telephone call? has a lawsuit been filed against you by Unifund? Fortunately, you have found this website and you have found a Consumer Attorney who is willing to help defend you.
Unifund is a company that buys bad debt to try to make a profit. They buy large blocks of allegedly defaulted credit card accounts for pennies on the dollar, sometimes for even less, for the sole purpose of attempting to collect whatever they can on those accounts from individuals just like you. They file dozens of lawsuits daily in hopes of collecting on old debt claims that have been charged off by the original creditor.
Our approach to defending lawsuits filed by Unifund is twofold. First, we defend the case based upon a lack of legal sufficiency. In general, when a party files a lawsuit in Pennsylvania, there are several issues that need to be recited in the lawsuit. In other words, facts must be established that tend to prove that you had a credit account, that you defaulted on it and that Unifund has the right to sue you and collect on the alleged debt.
In my experience, I have found that the lawsuits filed by Unifund are usually legally insufficient. We object to these lawsuits on insufficiency grounds with great success.
In the event that Unifund is able to cure the insufficiency objections, we then move on to defending the claim on its legal merits, i.e. whether you actually had the account, whether you actually defaulted on it, when the alleged default occurred, et cetera.
