Debt Collector Ordered to Stop For being Unlicensed

A Chicago City lady was told to prevent performing debt collection function without a license, according to a purchase signed by the state Department of Commerce final month.

Elizabeth Watterson, acting as Rent Recovery Service, taped a dunning (collection) letter for an apartment door in Forest Lake in September 2009, 2 days after the landlord changed the locks following a dispute using the tenant, the order said.

Watterson threatened to harm the tenant’s credit and put the person’s name on the bad tenant site when the renter didn't pay the landlord $1,681.

Later, she texted the tenant, identified only as R.P.: “I don't have any authority to complete something. I'll police and also the attorney.”
Watterson may perhaps request a hearing or seek an injunction to stop enforcement of the order.
