Sued by The Moore Law Group? Settle your debt and move on with your life.
The Moore Law Group is a collection law firm that pursues people who owe debts to third parties, like credit card companies and other lenders. According to its website, the company comprises attorneys, negotiators, and support staff.
The Moore Law Group claims to pursue collections in accordance with the law and to interact with consumers with compassion and respect. Its website offers clients a payment portal to repay their debts.
The company has five offices in California, Colorado, New Mexico, Arizona, and Nevada. Moore Law Group’s mailing address is PO Box 25145, Santa Ana, CA, 92799-5145. You can also reach The Moore Law Group at (800) 506-2652 or by fax at (714) 754-9568.
The Moore Law Group has a Better Business Bureau (BBB) profile with a current rating of A+. However, the business does not have BBB accreditation. As of March 21, 2023, there are seven complaints against the company.
One complaint comes from a customer of The Moore Law Group who claims the company didn’t manage the collections process for their account correctly. The customer says there is no communication between departments, and the website is outdated.
Another customer came across a title lien from The Moore Law Group when trying to refinance her mortgage. She tried calling the company daily, but no one answered or replied. She couldn’t refinance her home without a clear title.
One client claimed that The Moore Law Group didn’t correctly validate their debt and regularly harassed them. They claim that the company’s representatives visit their home late at night, punching and kicking their doors.
The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) has also received dozens of complaints against The Moore Law Group, ranging from fraudulent debt issues, problems with debt validation, receiving threats from the law firm, and more. Here’s an example of a real complaint from the CFPB:
“Moore law group filed a suit to collect a debt and never gave me any opportunity to review the debt. Moreover, they falsely claimed to have served me and filed suit in the incorrect jurisdiction! I haven't been given any rights to accept or deny anything. I can not give an amount as I have no clue if the debt is accurate.”
Luckily, there are laws in place to protect consumers from unfair treatment by debt collectors like The Moore Law Group. For example, the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDPCA) stops collectors from certain actions, such as:
If you have experienced any of these actions in communicating with a debt collector, you may be eligible for compensation. Check out our guide on FDCPA Violations List to learn more.
Don’t ignore the letter if The Moore Law Group contacts you regarding an old debt. Your first step is to review its contents and ask The Moore Law Group to validate the debt. Asking for debt validation requires the company to prove the debt is yours and that it has the right to collect it from you.
In your Debt Validation Letter, ask The Moore Law Group to provide the following:
You should ask The Moore Law Group to cease all communication until it properly validates the debt.
Sometimes, collection agencies don’t have the proper records to validate an obligation. If The Moore Law Group can’t validate your debt, it will stop contacting you.
If The Moore Law Group validates your debt, you must determine how to repay it. If you can refund the total amount, do so. Once The Moore Law Group receives your payment, it will stop collection activities and report your account paid in full.
You can ask for an installment agreement if the amount due is more than you can afford. Under an installment agreement, you’ll make monthly payments until you pay off the debt. Dividing the amount due into smaller payments can make it easier to manage.
Before entering into an installment agreement, read the terms and conditions carefully. Be wary if the company says it will charge you interest during the repayment period. You may pay much more in an installment agreement than if you paid the debt now.
Settling debt is advantageous for both you and The Moore Law Group. You’ll save money on the total amount due and halt further collection activities, while The Moore Law Group will obtain some money toward your debt.
In a settlement, you offer The Moore Law Group a fraction of the debt’s total value. The Moore Law Group agrees to accept your lump-sum payment and release you from the remaining amount you owe. Following a settlement, The Moore Law Group will report your account settled to the credit reporting bureaus.
Your first step in a settlement is determining how much you can afford. Ideally, you’ll offer at least 40% of the debt’s value. The Moore Law Group may disagree with your offer, so prepare to negotiate. Give yourself some extra room if it demands more money.
Let’s consider an example.
Example: Jane owes an old credit card obligation of $4K. The Moore Law Group partners with her creditor and starts collection activities against her. Jane requests a debt validation, which The Moore Law Group provides. Jane can’t afford to repay the obligation, so she uses SoloSettle to negotiate a debt settlement, offering 40% of the debt’s value, or $1.6K, in a settlement. The Moore Law Group tells Jane it will accept $2.5K to settle the debt. Jane agrees to The Moore Law Group’s offer, and SoloSuit sends Jane’s money for her, keeping her financial information private and secure. The Moore Law Groups releases the remaining debt and reports the account settled to the credit reporting bureaus.
