Client Services, Inc. is the defendant in a proposed class action lawsuit filed by two New York consumers who claim the debt collector failed to clearly communicate in collection letters the amount of their alleged debts. The letters supposedly contained a “balance” followed by an asterisk that was not linked to any further explanation. Both plaintiffs were under the impression that the amounts they allegedly owed would increase due to interest or fees, but the letters neglected to mention whether the “balance” would change, according to the complaint. As a result, the plaintiffs argue that they were unable to determine the amount of their alleged debts and could not make informed decisions about how to respond to the debt collection letters.

A reckless new bill represents an unprecedented threat to consumer rights, essentially gutting class action and mass tort litigation. Congress has tried to ram it through without us noticing. Read more about the implications of this bill, and contact your members of Congress to protect your rights.
