No, almost definitely not. What they can do is take you to court and win a judgment against you. If that judgment isn't satisfied, they can obtain a court order to garnish your wages.

What they can't do is threaten you with jail or putting a lien on your home. Know your rights. Check out the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act online.

Can a collection agency put a lien against your home for late and unpaid unsecured debt in Pennsylvania and if so could that lien ultimately cause you to lose your home?

Unless the collection agency is an assignee for a firm who provided labor or materials for your real property, they cannot place a lien against your home. They can, however, obtain a judgment, which will act as a lien against your home. They cannot foreclose on your home unless the debt is secured to a mortgage or deed of trust.
