Debt buying is a massive industry. Some of the debt buyers are so huge that they are publicly traded companies on the stock market. Portfolio Recovery Associates, Midland Funding, LVNV Funding, CACH, CACV and Jefferson Capital Systems are some of the major debt buying companies that buy hundreds of millions in bad debt for pennies on the dollar. These companies then file lawsuits against you demanding that you pay back the full balance on the account (although they may offer you a slight discount).
However, if your account was purchased by a debt buyer, it makes it easier for you to fight a debt. There are certain additional defenses available for you to use to defend your lawsuit only on accounts that were purchased by a debt buyer. In addition to proving the debt, they have to prove that they purchased the account, gave you notice of their purchasing your account, and have the appropriate supporting documentation. There are also legal requirements that they must meet prior to testifying about your account. Debt buyers are usually not provided with your complete file, but only get certain documentation on your account. An experienced debt defense attorney can help you exploit their incomplete file to make them dismiss the lawsuit or win the case outright!
