Realize the attorney is merely using his status to scare you. Don't get me wrong, you can be sued, but rarely does it happen. * Attorneys do not call debtors, in all likelihood the person was a collecton agency rep. The debtor will receive a letter from the law firm outlining the options available to him or her, and a specific time in which they can contact the attorney or the firm to accept or decline. In regards to being sued it is not rare at all. The average circuit court has 100+ lawsuits in which creditors sue debtors for monies owed. The debtor under no circumstances should impart any financial or personal information to a collector or anyone claiming to be legal counsel representing a creditor.
