U.S. Equities Corp. is exclusively represented by an attorney named Linda Strumpf from Connecticut. It is believed by many that Linda Strumpf is far more than just the lawyer for U.S. Equities – she is its owner.
Linda Strumpf’s office claims to be located at 69 Fox Run, South Salem, NY 10590. Calls to Linda Strumpf’s office at their reported phone number – (212) 566-6800 – will usually be directed to its debt collector who calls himself “John Murphy”.
Linda Strumpf and U.S. Equities have been accused of violating federal debt collection laws known as the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) and has been sued by consuenqrs for those alleged violations.
