Auto lender objects to discharge in bankruptcy -- unsuccessful

Ohio consumers who decide to file for personal bankruptcy do so for multiple different reasons. Some may have overwhelming credit card debt while others may have committed to loans or purchases that they cannot afford to pay back. An insurance salesman in another state started driving for Uber on a part-time basis in Oct. 2014. His intentions were to enhance his income, but he ultimately sought bankruptcy protection.

Consumer sues company for alleged unfair debt collection

Although there are laws to protect consumers against unfair debt collection, the practice remains prevalent. Not all victims of such harassment know that they may take legal action against companies that unfairly hound them.

In the meantime, penalties and interest rates accumulate, worsening an already dire situation.
