Summary: If you've been sued by the Sherman Financial Group, use SoloSuit to respond in 15 minutes and win your lawsuit.
There are two words, and only two words, you need to know to beat Sherman Financial Group (or any debt collector, for that matter) in court. Those two words are – Prove It.
Americans are awash in debt, and that is a gold mine for unscrupulous debt collectors who want to make money by collecting on that debt. These debt collectors will often use aggressive tactics to achieve their goal, up to and including filing lawsuits against alleged debtors.
The debt collectors use these tactics because they know that, in almost every case, the person who owes the debt will not respond. The debt collector hopes to get a court judgment against the debtor to garnish the debtor's wages, or worse.
That is where those two powerful words – Prove It – come into play.
If a debt collector files a lawsuit against you, then you need to demand that they prove to you that you truly owe the debt that they claim you owe. You will be shocked to discover that the debt collector will rarely be able to prove its case in court.
Sherman Financial Group is one of those aggressive debt collectors that you need to stand up to. So, if you just received a notice that Sherman Financial Group (or some subsidiary of Sherman Financial Group) is suing you in court on a debt, do not throw it away. And do not run and hide. Rather, respond to that suit, and demand that Sherman Financial Group prove its case in court.
In this article, we will give you a little background on what Sherman Financial Group is all about. But more importantly, we will give you an easy way to demand that Sherman Financial Group put its money where its mouth is and prove its case against you in court. You too will be able to stand up to an aggressive debt collector and say those two powerful words – Prove It.
Sherman Financial Group, LLC is a massive debt collection company that purchases and administers consumer debt that has gone into default. The company buys the debt from credit card companies, phone companies, student loan providers, mortgage banks, and other businesses with consumers who are unable to pay their bills.
It pays for the debt at a very low price (often pennies on the dollar) and makes its money by keeping the difference once it gets the money from the debtor. Not surprisingly, that business plan motivates Sherman Financial to be aggressive in collecting from debtors.
Sherman Financial has a rather confusing set of intertwined organizations. It is owned by Sherman Capital, and it owns many debt collection subsidiaries including Sherman Originator and Sherman Acquisition. Also, it is somehow affiliated with companies called Resurgent Capital Services, LVNV Funding, and Alegis Group.
Are you confused by all the companies? You should be. The confusion is by design. It is a way for the billionaires who own the companies to hide assets behind different corporate forms when any one company is sued for illegal debt collection activity. As you would expect, Sherman Financial Group's subsidiaries have been ordered in the past to pay millions to settle allegations of illegal debt collection practices, including making false claims about consumers.
As noted above, the key to beating Sherman Financial Group in court is to force it to prove its case against you. Sherman Financial, and other aggressive debt collectors, often go into court unopposed. Sherman Financial counts on that. So, it is rarely, if ever, prepared to provide adequate evidence to demonstrate that it owns your debt and that you owe money on the debt.
