Milwaukee Wisconsin Consumer Violation Attorneys

At Welcenbach Law Offices, we help victims of consumer violations.

We have experience in helping people who were injured due to a creditor's violation of consumer protection laws including the Fair Debt Collections Practices Act, Fair Credit Reporting Act and Wisconsin Consumer Act.

We help people with the following situations:

  1. A debt collector or company is collecting from me and I do not own the money because I'm the wrong person.

  2. A debt collector or company is collecting from me and I do not own the money because the debt was already settled, paid or discharged in bankruptcy.

  3. I filed bankruptcy and after bankruptcy a company or debt collector is: 

  • Sending collection letters on a debt I discharged.

  • Sending notices related to a house debt that I discharged in bankruptcy demanding payment of money.
  • Making phone calls trying to collect on debt I discharged. 
  • Reporting discharged debt on my credit report.
  1. A company is illegally checking my credit report.

The only permissible purposes of checking a credit report are: 

  • Review of an existing account. 
  • In connection with an unsolicited firm offer of credit. 
  • As part of an application for credit. 
  1. A debt collector or company is making unwanted calls to my cell phone including robo-calls trying to collect debt.

  2. My bank or credit union took money from a checking or savings account to pay a credit card late fee, over limit fee, or for another reason.
