----Debtors who owe money on a debt that is being collected from this guy, beware. He sends out a lot of "illegal" letters stating he will get you arrested and send you to jail ( and probably has been sued for it multiple times in the past) if you don't do such and such. In fact, there are a lot of illegal things he will say to you when you call him, so do record your conversations with him.
---he entered me into a judgment when I never even received the initial demand letter. One of the office employees accidentally said "it was sent to the wrong address, but...". If it was sent to the wrong address and they know it, they are supposed to resend it to the correct address and are not allowed to enter a judgment. She denied saying that afterwards. Also, no one from his office ever attempted to call me about a debt I owed so I could arrange some payments (but they pretended like they were calling me all the time according to another debt collection agency), instead he entered me into a judgment and forced me to tell him where I worked, what I owned, and give him my bk act numbers - he said it was an order from the court.
---Making payments with him was so difficult, he collected more money than I was supposed to owe (not sure what kind of fees he was adding on his end). Every time I got close to paying off my debt, he would tell me some nonsense and then threaten to throw me into jail if I didn't pay, or garn my wages and bank accounts. I paid for the last two months in advance which would have officially paid off my debt and close the case because I was going to be in and out of surgery (and who knows if I would have enough to make payments then). And somehow his office manager and accountant lost the payments, even after showing him the receipt they wrote off to me, they charged me all these late fees and said I defaulted on payments. No one ever got back to me about the money I paid in advance, instead he refused to meet in person (he was too busy) and continued conversations over the phone (threats/bullying), telling me that I must have lost the payments - he didn't even let me get a word in.
Also, I ran into one of his "former employees" and this person said that he abuses the law in multiple ways when collecting debts from debtors - suing him would be cake since he is pretty much disliked by most judges in CO (for being a incompetent, I suppose). This person also told me aside from his illegal law practices, he abuses his employees in multiples ways.
This guy is completely abusive and insane. Please do consider your legal rights when dealing with this attorney. Research what is legal and what is not, even consult with another lawyer if you are not sure. Make sure you record your conversations and keep everything he sends you. Also, be sure to call the original debt company to verify the amount owed. He will definitely take more than he is supposed to.
Horrible, horrible, experience.
I concur completely with SSS1970's statement as this is exactly what he is doing in 2012. I have owed debts of many type including child support (which I have paid in full) and never have I ever experienced anything quite so criminal in the collection of a debt.
He talks like some city slicker gangster when you contact him regarding his placing a 99:Legal Process "Hold" on all your assets even though having explained the current employment status he still carries on as though nothing real life has anything to do with a less amount payment or no payment periods. I have never "taken" anything and am now paying for it he "takes" and banks should protect their clients better. Kicking a person down for trying as hard as you can to comply is not gaining him anything in the long run.
Ball should be put on the predator list!!! – The first post got it dead on!!! I would file for bankruptcy if you have to deal with him and that wonderful staff!! After seconds of talking to this
Pathetic collector with a law degree – Frank Ball gets his jollies from trying to throw people in jail. He wasted years & money going to law school, just to be a collector. Growing up he said “I want to be an attorney some day so I can ruin lives.” He is so sick that he devoted his legal life to screwing people over instead of doing good.As a credit card collector with no morals, he sues immediately & demands court ordered interrogatories so you provide your assets to him. Then he will garnish your wages or freeze money in your bank. This disgusting human even has debtors arrested for not paying. If someone owes $, it does not make them a bad person, & there are decent ways to collect. He chooses to use intimidation, harassment, & taking your freedom.It is despicable that when you do try to pay, w/ a plan that you can afford, he refuses. He just demands your asset list so he can force you to pay his way. He obviously does not care if a mother needs her $ to care for their kids, he will just put her in jail. How does he sleep at night? No decent person would do this job & hurt so many. DONT USE CITIBANK, they endorse the behavior of monsters like F.Ball by allowing him to mistreat their customers in collections.
