PYOD LLC Lawsuits


PYOD LLC purchases old consumer debt at steep discounts. It then sues people on that debt for profit. Lawsuits filed by debt buyers often are defective, due to a lack of evidence and witnesses. In other words, there’s a good chance you can beat PYOD in court.

Why Is PYOD LLC Suing Me?

Some debt buyers "filed lawsuits against consumers without the intent to prove ... the debts."

CFPB Press Release

PYOD LLC is suing you to profit off your debt. It purchases old debt at considerable discounts. After buying your debt on the cheap, it often will try to collect the full amount of debt from you. PYOD may call you, send you letters, or sue you.

According to public documents filed by the Federal Trade Commission and the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, debt buyers like PYOD pay as little as 3 to 4 cents on the dollar for the delinquent consumer debt they purchase. 

One tactic used by debt buyers, like PYOD LLC, to profit off the debt they buy is the mass filing of collection lawsuits. For example, in early 2019, one debt buyer was filing 500-750 lawsuits a week. If that debt buyer filed lawsuits at that pace for the whole year, it would file between 25,000 and 35,000 lawsuits in Pennsylvania in just on year. Additionally, according to public reporting, some debt buyers have filed as many as half a million lawsuits in a year.

Can I Win If I Get Sued By PYOD LLC?

There’s a good chance you can win PYOD LLC lawsuits. When debt buyers sue consumers, they often lack the documents and witnesses necessary to prove their case in court. For example, in Pennsylvania, debt buyers need the following things to win their case:

  • Contracts: these documents are necessary to prove the interest fees, and terms agreed to by the parties.
  • Account Statements: these documents are necessary to prove the purchases, interest, fees, charges, debits, credits, and other amounts that make up the debt at issue.
  • Assignments: an "assignment" document is required to show the debt buyer owns the debt at issue in its lawsuit.
  • Witnesses: witnesses are required to authenticate the contracts, account statements, and assignments, and testify how these documents apply to the case.

Debt buyers like PYOD LLC usually don’t have the required documents, and they rarely (if ever) bring witnesses to court. When PYOD doesn’t bring the documents or witnesses it needs, you should win and they should lose. In our experience, this is often the case in debt buyer lawsuits.
