Worldwide Asset Purchasing LLC is a client of Protocol Recovery Services which is crap, and as of right now, I work for the Pensacola branch of West Corporation. No bad news there, they are sticklers for laws and procedure. They do not allow room for mistakes. What experiences do you have with West?

I was contacted about a debt that was originally Radio Shack. About a month ago a guy (forget where from, not even sure if he said)I told him, mail me a letter proving you have my debt and how much I owe. He says he has wrong address, I give him correct address no letter. 2 wks ago someone from Gerald E. MOore calls and starts same story, they dont have my right address, not enough time to mail a letter and wait for my response. I did NOT say I didnt owe the debt, I just dont agree to the amount. My credit report shows the account as charged off at $2520 about 3 or 4 yrs ago. So show me proof on paper on what I owe and to whom. Well yesterday another guy from Gerald E. Moore's calls me, says I gotta pay it, agrees to "settle" for $2500. I told him, no paper, no money... So right or wrong I agree for them to fax me a letter. NOW IT GETS INTERESTING!!!
The time stamp on the fax is 9/22/2013, the time was right but it was stamped for over 7 years from now!!!
That was my first warning sign.... Then it shows the creditor as World Asset Purchasing... THEN in the part called Settlement Offer, they claim their client is actually Worldwide Asset Purchasing.. Am I knitpicking details?? or is the as fishy as I think it is??? This whole deal just dont seem right to me..

They asked me if their was a Bank of America nearby I could deposit the money there, or give them my debit card number, or Western Union the money. Needless to say I am not dumb enough to give my bank information to anyone. Western Union well, anyone can make up information and pick my money up, they claim that after they are sure the funds clear they would mail me a confirmation letter, excuse me, if they can't mail a letter to prove the debt, why would I think they would mail me a confirmation report, they also said they would take this debt off my credit report and I just read somewhere that they don't have that authority.

Any suggestions???

Did you get the court orders? A legal judgment asks for a court appearance where you need to show your cause. I will suggest you to get in touch with the credit card company and clarify the matter. Also, show your proof to the CRA requesting to correct your file.

I've had a bad deal with worldwide asset purchasing also. They approached me with a supposedly debt of $6000.00. I questioned who they were and what the debt was about. Worldwide asset purchasing never gave me an answer. I received some papers in the mail later that indicated this was a sort of credit card debt, problem is, I have not had a credit card in over 10 years. They filed a judgment in which I filed a written response denying claim with the clerk of the courts, however when court date arrived I did not attend because I did not think I had to. My error needless to say, the judgment was granted becuase I did not attend. I still want to pursue the company though for filing a false claim.

Can someone explain how one trusts a company asking for money. I know or believe that I have an outstanding debt. My problem is that I want to pay the correct monies to absolve this debt and after falling under one scam - Miracle Mangement/Risk Management, just google them and see. I find it hard to trust anyone... any suggestions? I am now being called on a daily basis from lawyers that say they present Direct Merchant Banking via West Asset Mngmnt.... but they won't send me paperwork or work with me in the payoff. I alreayd lost $3K when I thought I was paying them off to begin with....

I am so frustrated!!! This Worldwide Asset Purchasing aka West Assett Management is definitely a big FRAUD! I paid an account for Checksmart to them in 2006, went through the whole "you are being tapped for quality" bit, only to get a letter in the mail from Gerald E. Moore stating that my original debt has never been paid. I think everyone that has experienced this fraud needs to come together, get an attorney and put these thieves away, legally.

They filled suit against me. The summon's was handed to my daughther who was visiting me at the time so unfortunately I never seen it. I did not show and they were awarded a defaut judgment. I filled Chapter 7 and was awarded discharge of debtor including judgemnts upto and thereafter. My attorney had sent a Decoration of Bankruptcy to the courts but they were not forwarded to the proper department until recently (2 years later). I just found out the judgment was attached to my Deed. Now the court does not want to honor the United States Bankruptcy Court ruling. They called Worldwide and the so called gentleman Tim (don't have to give my last name) was rude and told them for me to get a lawyer and sue them if I want a satisfaction of judgment. They buy up peoples credit for pennies on the dollar and then try to collect the amount plus what interest they want to put on it and attorney fees. Not even sure if they are licensed attorney. Well I feel better now. Good luck to anyone who has and is dealing with this scam company.

The phone number I have for them is one that showed up on my caller id (678) 528-5858. This company is suppose to be located in Atlanta, GA. The first problem is the same as everyone else stated, they want to collect money through a bank account draft or western union. Second, they are very unprofessional. This one particular guy keeps calling and one day he'll say his name is Micheal and the next day he identifies himself as Mr. Striker. Striker is very rude and tends to lose his temper. Someone how they have even contacted my in-laws and began harrassing them about a debt they say my husband owes. Companies are not suppose to contact people before 8am and after 9pm. He called our home after 9pm. I am in the process of trying to report them to the Better Business Bureau. If anyone else have any further information or have reported them in the past, please comment....Thanks

The first I heard of owing this company a debt was by checking my credit report and seeing a judgement against me. I contacted the credit bureau to protest and get more information about the company which was useless. Figured I'd check for the company online and here I am, evidently not the only that has no clue about this company and owing them a debt. Thanks for the information. Will post my results of contact once I receive a response from the lawyers office.

These people are what is wrong with this country.
I wonder if the Blackwater Group takes on private assignments. I'd like them to represent me and handle this credit matter. I would be willing to pay twice the debt they are charging me. They are quick to get a judgment letter to my address but when i check the county clerks site it states that service of process was returned. Wow! How convenient. This is terrorism of new sorts. My credit is good and they viciously are attempting to slaughter my life with their greed and nonsense. It's the new form of slavery I guess.

Thanksgiving day I went to withdraw $ from my account. My balance indicated $ there but wouldn't allow transaction. Assuming the ATM had no cash, I went to grocery store with debit card. Card denied.... Black Friday I call my bank, to learn my account was "restricted". WAP (Las Vegas) had aparently filed a suit against me and won a judgement for an amount almost 3 times the original debt amount! I never received a summons or ANYTHING (from WAP or the Court) to notify me of lawsuit apparently filed last June. I have no access to my account, checks are out, I have direct deposit, I need a lawyer!! Can anyone reccommend an honorable/reputable attorney (that works on a contingency basis)? Any advice would be appreciated.

Guest, for an attorney in your area check . As to Ebony's post, collectors have been know to stiff their clients. I read of a case recently where a collector in Georgia, I think, stiffed her clients and left town. I'm sure this happens with the larger companies as well. Many of them are not beyond breaking the law on both ends.

Law Student, Thanks for your tip... Can you tell me, How can I be sued without being served? How did WAP know my account and successfully "restrict" it? Must the bank have received an order from the court? Do I have any recourse regarding access to my account?

Submitted by on Mon, 11/26/2007 - 03:59

Your bank account could easily have been found by an asset search. Apparently they must have gotten some judgment, because that's the only way your account could have been frozen. First, I would contact the collector/creditor and demand a copy of the judgment. Then you'll know when and where they sued, and can begin the process of having the judgment vacated. By law, every defendant, or, respondent (terms used depending on where you live), must be properly served.

Thank you Law Student! You have been my greatest source of help and information these last few days! I did call the County Court last Friday. They are sending me all the court papers. They indicated that the process server left the summons with a "neighbor", who apparently doesn't have to sign a receipt. Then gave me the description of "neighbor" as white male with black hair. Needless to say, I have yet to meet this neighbor, for the last three years! Does this sound "properly served"? Or, does that vary by state too? Thank you again- for giving me hope. Ali

Hey Law Student- I spoke with an attorney from the naca website. One of TWO in my area(+200 miles away), and the only one with experience in this field. He know's "Frank" the attorney from WAP. Apparently, they went to school together and are friends.... He said it would cost me 650.00 to file the motion to vacate, with no garantee the judge would agree. Should I get something in writing from the attorney before I retain him? He indicated his fee was for filing the motion and, if the judge agreed to open the case, he wouldn't charge more than that. I'm waiting on Court papers, to fax to him, before I retain him. Are there questions I should ask him, before retaining him? My sister said I could file the motion to vacate myself, for a minimal fee, is this accurate? Would it be a galactic mistake? Thanks again for helping me. Ali

Actually 650.00 doesn't seem all that expensive when you think of filing fees etc (which would probably be at least half that sum). If you should deside to retain the attorney, he will send you a standard agreement in writing for you to go over, and to sign if you wish. I would want someone with experience in these matters, unless you're familiar with litigation and the areas of law such as this. It might help if he personally knows this guy on the other side.

Thank you Law Student! I was surprised by your response. One last thing..... How can I find out about the statute of limitations regarding CC debt? I've gone to a web site that lists the statutes for my state (NY) but can't decipher the "lingo" to determine which statute applies to a credit card debt. I'm curious if WAP had the right to sue me, at all. Thanks again. Ali

Regarding the statute of limitations; Is it six years from the original agreement with original creditor? I've recently received a copy of my credit report, it has the original lender and "written off as bad debt",as well as "purchased by another lender" listed twice. I had only the one account with this lender, but it appears as though it's two seperate accounts. Each has a different account #, different balances and limits, and each have different dates as to when it was opened/closed/paid. Can anyone tell me if this is what happens when it's "purchased by another lender"? How does this effect the statute of limitations?
Thanks for all your help everyone! Ali
