Is Deanna Natale Law Offices a scam or the real thing? The big question Canadian’s have is am I going to be sued?
The amount of questions we get from people looking for answers about Natale Law Offices is unreal; they are a boutique law firm that advocates for collection agencies and as such they have a huge reach and a nasty sting. Tens of thousands of people have lost sleep because of one very effective collection notice they use called a “draft statement of claim”.
It’s essentially an unregistered statement of claim; so it’s in draft form only. It’s accompanied by a covering letter indicating that Deanna Natale’s office has been retained to collect monies owed to “XYZ creditor” and that some really bad things may happen to you if you don’t make full payment within 10 days.
Do they actually follow through and sue debtors to collect money for creditors? I’m sure they do, but by the sheer volume of inquires we get, I have to assume their drafted versions outnumber any follow up legal action.
Deanna Natale Law Offices isn’t the only firm using this technique, but from what we have seen her office seems to be the most active. There are so many lawyers using this collection technique that Brian Pitkin, the Ontario the Registrar of Collection Agencies lettered 176 collection agencies frowning on their use of draft statement of claims. But there isn’t much he can do about it because the practice is technically taking advantage of a loophole he doesn’t control.
Either way, if you are having difficulty paying your debts and have received any notice from a collection agency it’s a good sign that it’s time to act and do something about your debt.
