Florida Trial Judge Gives Notorious Zombie Debt Buyer The Boot In Attempt To Collect From Consumer Without First Providing Evidence That It Independently Verified Accuracy Of Original Creditor's Billing Statements

From The Consumer Financial Services Blog:
  • The County Court of the Twelfth Judicial Circuit Court of Florida [ie. Sarasota, Manatee, & DeSoto Counties] recently held that a debt buyer could not use the original creditor’s credit card statements to try to collect on the underlying debts, as the debt buyer failed to present evidence that it independently verified the accuracy of the credit card statements.

For the court ruling, see Midland Funding LLC v. Nole, Case No. 2016-SC-319 (Cty. Ct., 12th Jud. Cir., Manatee County, May 26, 2016).

Representing the consumer was Arthur Rubin, We Protect Consumers, P.A., Tampa, Florida.
