National Action Financial Services – has anyone dealt with them?

member profile picture

I am helping my neighbor out with National Action Financial Services. Before he had a different company, N/R/A trying to collect on an old debt from him. The debt is at least 10 years old since hr made a payment and the SOL in our state is 6 years. N/R/A had it on his credit report and Trans-Union deleted it but Experian verified it and Equifax we are waiting for an answer. I called N/R/A and they had no information so I bitched them out for verifying an account with the credit reports when they have nothing in the office. I told them if they verify the debt again, they will b liable for FDCPA and FCRA violations.

Now he gets the letter from National Action Financial Services Inc.. It says who the original creditor is, Mobil and is for $75. They have the 30 day dispute on the letter but says and I quote:

"Your account is seriously past due and must be paid in full or we will proceed with appropriate collection activity."

I plan on calling them and see what that means, play a scared person role,lol. They have not been on his credit report yet and by law, they can't the debt is older than 7.6 years and is beyond the credit reporting period. I also see that this company has many lawsuits against them and I would like to help my neighbor add to that.

What is the best possible thing to do at this point? Should I send a debt validation letter OR would you just send a Cease and Desist letter stating the SOL has expired and that the credit reporting period has expired? What would you do?




Since the debt is beyond SOL and reporting period, I would first DV National Action Financial Services, ONE time. If they don't comply, then send them a total cease & desist and tell them to take a flying leap.

See if you can find out the owner of the debt. Have you seen the name Pinnacle on any of the paperwork, by any chance?

National Action was sicked onto me me by Pinnacle. I DV'd NAFS and they sent this lame attempt at validation, which was basically the name of the account and the amount typed on Pinnacle's letterhead. I sent them a letter back telling them this wasn't good enough and to try again.

I didn't hear anything more from them.

Skip ahead a couple of months and Pinnacle has now put the Law Offices of Thomas Landis on me for the same account. They just pulled the account from National Action Financial Services and sent it to another CA for collection, when they knew I had disputed it with NAFS and they couldn't properly validate it.

Add to that, the fact Pinnacle is reporting it on my credit report and they aren't reporting it as disputed.

My attorney is sending a demand letter to Pinnacle advising them they need to respond or we will sue. Pinnacle is just one of two CA's I am currently in the process of suing.

Original creditor is: Mobil

Current creditor is: Cavalry Portfolio

National Action Financial Services is collecting for: Cavalry.

I looked around for him and I can't see Pinnacle anywhere.

I would send DV letters to both National Action Financial Services and Cavalry.

Nope. The people who dare to charge 30% interest are the thieves and their unchecked Greed is what is destroying the economy, Mr. Debt Collector. Besides, if the economy was good and people could afford to pay your unethical extortion, you wouldn't have a job, would you?
