Our client received correspondence from Selip & Stylianou, LLP who asserted a balance due, including post-judgment interest. In this letter, Selip & Stylianou, LLP also threatened to restrain our client’s bank account, and enclosed a notice to judgment debtor. However, there was no money judgment against our client. In other words, Selip & Stylianou, LLP misrepresented to our client that there was a judgment against her and attempted to collect on this non-existent judgment. Creditor Harassment Attorney Jason Shear then sued Selip & Stylianou, LLP under the FDCPA and obtained a confidential settlement for our client.
