Cavalry Portfolio Services is an notorious “debt buyer”, buying up portfolios of old debt from banks, credit card companies, hospitals, doctors, cell phone companies and car companies for pennies on the dollar.
According to the New York State Unified Court System, Cavalry filed more than 2,500 New York debt collection lawsuits in 2014 alone. Debt collection cases like these are most often brought in New York’s civil, city and small claims courts.
You may be asking – “having filed this many cases in New York alone, how can Cavalry be sure I owe them money?” The simple answer is they can’t. To Cavalry you are little more than an entry on a spreadsheet, you are data.
In a debt collection lawsuit, Cavalry must prove that you are responsible for the debt. To meet this burden, Cavalry must prove that: (1) it has the right to sue you; (2) that debt is yours; and (3) you owe the amount they sued you for.
Cavalry Portfolio Services, LLC regularly makes debt collection phone calls from (800) 501-0909 and is located at:
500 Summit Lake Drive
Valhalla, NY 10595
Cavalry is a notorious violator of federal debt collection laws known as the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) and is sued regularly by consumers for these violations. The FDCPA is a federal law that regulates the collection of consumer debts. It precludes third party debt collectors from using false, misleading, deceptive and harassing debt collection tactics.
