If you are feeling angry towards Revco Solutions, you're not the only one. As of 2022, Revoc Solutions has received 120 complaints on its BBB profile over a three-year period. These complaints mention several violations of the FDCPA, and they demonstrate just how aggressive Revco Solutions can be when trying to collect on a debt.
Let's take a look at a real example.
“Revco Solutions, Inc. is attempting to collect a debt that I do not owe. I have never signed a contract nor have I ever received any monies from Revco Solutions, Inc. They continue to send intimidating letters with an attempt to collect money from me. I do not owe Revco any money nor do I ever intend to pay them any money for which I never received. I would like an apology for their negative tactics and have all negative information removed from all credit reporting agencies IMMEDIATELY! Furthermore, Revco should compensate me for loss of time to handle this matter and taking my important time with unwanted letters and telephonic calls.”
Understand your legal rights when Revco Solutions contacts you about a debt
Revco Solutions is known to try to take advantage of people who do not know their rights under the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act. The FDCPA lays out many rules and regulations that restrict how debt collectors can contact and treat you. Some of these rules include the following:
A debt collector may not call you before 8 a.m. or after 9 p.m.
A debt collector cannot use rude or vulgar language when they contact you.
A debt collector is not allowed to threaten you with a debt collection lawsuit.
A debt collector cannot call you at your workplace.
Respond to a debt lawsuit against Revco Solutions
If Revco Solutions sues you for debts you allegedly owe, it is vital to respond to the lawsuit quickly and aggressively. Do not ignore the lawsuit and throw the notices in the trash. The lawsuit will always be there and even if you ignore it, it will not go away. Ignoring the suit means Revco Solutions wins by default. This gives them the right to garnish your wages and put liens on your property. Never make this mistake of ignoring a debt lawsuit—you can fight back!
Follow these three steps to respond to a debt lawsuit against Revco solutions:
Respond to each claim listed in the Complaint document. You can admit, deny, or deny due to a lack of knowledge. Most attorneys suggest that you deny as many allegations as possible. This makes Revco Solutions work harder because they have to gather all the necessary documentation to prove the debt is actually yours.
Assert your affirmative defenses. These are legal reasons that Revco Solutions doesn't have a case against you. A common affirmative defense to raise in a debt collection lawsuit is the statute of limitations. If the debt is past the statute of limitations, then Revco has run out of time to sue you for the debt. If this is true, the case will be dismissed.
File the Answer with the court, and send a copy to Revco Solutions. Make sure to file before the deadline, which is 14-35 days, depending on which state you live. Make a copy to send to Revco Solutions via USPS-certified mail. You should also request a return receipt so you can prove that you properly sent the Answer to the opposing party.

Now, let's break down each step a little further.
1. Respond to each claim listed in the Complaint document
When you're sued for a debt, you should receive two court documents called the Summons and Complaint (also known as a Petition in some states). The Summons notifies you of the lawsuit, while the Complaint lists the specific claims being made against you.
The most important section of your Answer is the part where you respond to each claim listed in the Complaint. You can use one of the following responses:
Deny (like saying, “Prove it.”)
Deny due to lack of knowledge (like saying, “I don't know.”)
Admit (like saying, “This is true.”)
Most attorneys advise denying as many claims as possible. This forces Revco Solutions to do more work to prove their case. If they don't have the proper documentation to prove their claims, they may choose to dismiss the case altogether.
When you answer the debt collection lawsuit filed by Revco Solutions, you have a chance to highlight any problems with the allegations contained within the Complaint. As mentioned earlier, debt collectors are legally obligated to prove that you owe what they claim you owe. This means Revco Solutionsmust prove these things before you are legally responsible for the debt:
The debt collector is legally authorized to sue you.
You are the person who owes the debt.
You owe the amount noted by Revco Solutionsin the complaint filed with the court.
If Revco Solutions cannot prove the above points, there is a great chance that you can win in Court and even get the lawsuit tossed out.
Depending on your case facts, you could argue that Revco Solutions did not file the suit within the statute of limitations timeline. The statute of limitations states the time that someone has to sue you. The debt collection company needs to file the suit within that time limit or they have no legal recourse.
If the case facts show that Revco Solutions sued you for something where the statute of limitations expired, you may file a motion to have the legal action dismissed with prejudice.
There are other things you can do to defeat Revco Solutions at their shady game. Think about filing a counterclaim if you possess evidence that Revco Solutionsdid something that violates the FDCPA. If you have such evidence, Revco Solutionsmay need to pay you damages as well as cover your legal fees.
After you've filed the Answer, be sure to send a copy of it to Revco Solutions. The copy should be sent via USPS certified mail with a return receipt requested. This serves as documented proof that your Answer was properly delivered to the opposing party.
