Asset Acceptance is an organization that claims to help creditors discharge the delinquent debt of consumers and point consumers on the path to financial success. Unfortunately, the reality of what this company does is quite a different story. Asset Acceptance is known for attempting to collect debts people don’t owe and filing erroneous class action lawsuits.

If you’ve been harassed or sued by Asset Acceptance, you do not have to sit back and endure this illegal behavior. A Michigan bankruptcy attorney may be able to defend you from their claims against you. With over 20 years of experience, you can trust Hensel Law Office, PLLC to fight aggressively for your rights.

What do I need to know about Asset Acceptance?

There are numerous different acts that protect consumers from unfair collection practices, including the Federal Trade Commission Act (FTC), the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA), and the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA). Based on blatant violations of these acts, the Federal Trade Commission sued Asset Acceptance.

Asset Acceptance was charged with the following violations:

  • Lying about ownership and validity of debts
  • Failing to notify consumers when providing negative information to creditors
  • Failing to authenticate debts when they had been disputed in writing
  • Knowingly reporting wrong information to creditors
  • Breaking the statute of limitations

These violations show just how dishonest Asset Acceptance really is. If you’ve been sued by this organization and are unsure of how to proceed, you need a knowledgeable and aggressive attorney in your corner. The last thing you want is to lose hard-earned money unnecessarily based purely on fraudulent and illegal claims.

Client Testimonials

  • Tom Hensel is definitely the right attorney to call!

    “I was referred to Tom Hensel by a friend. My first impression was not only was Tom professional but he's so kind and caring too. He helped my husband and I through an embarrassing, scary situation and definitely made it more positive one. He guided us through our options and helped us make the right decision for us which ended up being a chapter 7 bankruptcy. Tom was so knowledgeable and helped us throughout the whole process. He never once made us feel uncomfortable or dumb when we had questions. He was also very easy to get a hold of when questions would come up and would always return our calls and emails promptly. I strongly recommend Tom to anyone going through this kind of financial nightmare. Do yourselves a favor and call him right away. He will help you get on the right path again. Our only mistake was waiting so long to call him!! When we in court waiting our turn all the other attorneys referred to their clients as "The debtors" Tom on the other hand acknowledged us by our names. Little things mean a lot and that left a lasting impression with us. Tom Thank You again for all your help!!”

  • He always responded quickly and intelligently.

    “Mr. Hensel made a difficult and uncomfortable situation as easy as possible for me. He always responded quickly and intelligently to my questions and never made me feel as if I were bothering him. He explained the unknown aspects of bankruptcy, the court system, and my options in clearly understandable terms. I felt confident that he was handling my case in the best possible manner and in my best possible interests. I feel lucky to have found the Hensel Law Office and I never hesitate to refer others who could use assistance - because I know they will get superior service and help.”

    Kelly

  • Mr. Hensel walked me through every step.

    “I would highly recommend the Hensel Law Office!! Mr. Hensel walked me through every step, got my garnishments stopped very quickly (even got garnished wages returned to me!) and told me what to expect along the way. He answered all of my questions in a very timely manner- no matter what time I sent an email or gave him a phone call. Also, I felt his price was very reasonable compared to some of the other places that I called. Mr. Hensel answered plenty of questions that I had before I even became a client.”
