  1. Thomas L Gardner says:

    I recently had a lien put on my bank account by Resurgence Financial LLC for a judgment that was made in 2006. I was never served with the court papers, so I was not aware of the debt that I thought I paid off. What Resurgence told me was that the papers were served and signed by the co-occupant of the apartment I was living in, one problem, I was living alone at the time they said they served the papers. I was wondering if I could sue them or if I even should sue them in small claims court over this. Had I been served the papers I would have appeared in court and done whatever the judge said I needed to do if I lost.

    What is your opinion?

  2. Melissa says:

    Same thing happened to me! I received a letter from an attorney about a judgement against me. I never was served either with any information about the hearing date or time. This was in 2006! Same company Resurgence Financial LLC. They have sneaky tactics.

  3. nastassia says:

    Yeah same happened to me for something back in 2006 as well!

  4. Harry says:

    I have been harassed by this company but you can’t get to their web site to make a payment and I will not make a payment over the phone

  5. Lori says:

    I just got wage garnishment papers at my job. I guess back in 2001 I had a VISA card that was written off. Resurgence bought my debt and went to court in 2009 (I was never told) and judgment was placed against me. They are now (in 2013) trying to garnish my wages. Is there anything I can do?

  6. Jeremy M Bootz says:

    Yes, every thing the people said above has happend to me. Resurgence Financial, LLC bought a debt back to 2000 and then got a judgment against me in 2006. I was never served and the only way I found out about it was from my bank, when I went to get a loan and I didn’t know what to do. They never contacted me to collect the debt and I didn’t know how to contact them. then in 2011 they served papers to my work for a debt of 9687 dollars and the original debt was 3500. Then in 2012 my wages where getting garnish by the IRS and Resurgence Financial, LLC sold the debt. Then when i got the IRS problem fixed, they put the debt back and started garnishing my wages. If they sold it, don’t they lose the judgment and have to file for a new judgment? Any help you can offer would be appreciated.

  7. Ken Zamvil says:

    Ken says: The same thing as what occurred with Jeremy happened to me as well. A joint credit card account from my divorce, finalized in 1992, was held by Citibank for many years, had the last payment in 1998, was closed, written off by Citibank in 2004 and was sold to New Century Financial in 2008, then Capital Financial in 2008 and finally to Resurgence Financial in November, 2008. It appears that the account was so far beyond the statute of limitations that Citibank Recovery, New Century Financial and Capital Financial all passed it on to anyone who would buy the debt. After Resurgence Financial bought the outdated debt,there was no notice to me, no service to me and no knowledge of any lawsuit. Finally, on December 17, 2013 a levy for $11,366.00 was served on my bank account the same day as I transferred $4,000.00 in from my retirement account. Despite showing Resurgence and Wells Fargo Levy Dept. that my only source of funds is Social Security and my retirement assets, both of which are exempt, they refused to release the funds back to me. I am now making a motion to dismiss and filing an application for an order shortening time, trying to get the Court to rule in my favor. I haven’t checked my credit report, but I am certain Resurgence is on it. I verified with NATHAN A. SEARLES (head debt collector) in the Los Angeles office of Resurgence Legal Group that they are the same company. They should be barred from filing lawsuits in the United States unless they apply for, and receive, approval from the Court first.

  8. dee johnson says:

    These guys are nasty. They claimed I signed for papers on a judgment back in 3/2009. Can they pursue a judgement in 2014 to garnish.

    • Marilyn says:

      Unfortunately they can! They recently put a Lein on my boyfriends account for an alleged debt. They lied and stated that he was served through a co-occupant while he was living alone. Two days after freezing his bank accounts, they garnished his wages! Get a lawyer or go to the courthouse where the judgment was filed and get a motion to set aside the judgment. Best of luck!

  9. Marilyn says:

    This has also recently happened to my boyfriend. The Judgment was from 2006, he was never served with papers! Hire an Attorney and have them file an exemption of default!
