ATLANTA, GEORGIA -- If any of you ever gets into financial trouble (like I did, and am), and
founf NationWide Credit, Inc. on your credit report, here is some very useful information to use against not only them, but the original creditor who hired them:
1) United States District Court for the
District of New Jersey
NationWide Credit Information Services Inc.
NationWide Credit was successfully convicted of numerous allegations
of the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA). NationWide was
ultimately fined $1,000,000 (the largest civil fine awarded against
a collection agency at the time. NationWide also had to sign a consent
2) In The United States District Court

Precusor for suit above. NationWide was again successfully sued and
convictedof numerous allegations of the Fair Debt Collection
Practices Act (FDCPA). Nationwide was fined $100,000.

A "suggestion" for your readers: If they get contacted by an attorney
trying to collect a debt, "look up" the attorney on their state's Bar
web site, to see if the attorney has a record of "disciplinary action,"
which can be used against the attorney.
