Anyone can forget a debt or get behind on making payments. If you have gotten behind on a debt, a third-party debt collector may have taken it over. Because of some debt collectors harassing consumers and making false claims to recover payments, the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) was enacted in 1978. If a consumer believes Avante USA, Ltd., has violated the FDCPA or has harassed them, a claim can be pursed in court so compensation can be recovered for the violation. You will need to maintain documentation to support your claim against Avante USA, Ltd., and to prove the violations.
Avante USA, Ltd.
Avante USA, Ltd., is a Houston, Texas-based collection agency. Established in 2003, the collection agency has 125 employees. The General Manager, Jeremy Moore, is in charge of operations. Many consumers have filed claims in court against Avante USA, Ltd., alleging that they have harassed consumers, violated the FDCPA, and made threats while collecting debts.
How Much is Frequently?
Harassment can be considered “the frequency and persistence of noncompliance by the debt collector” according to the FDCPA. But, the FDCPA doesn’t specify the number of calls that are necessary for it to be considered harassment. Needless to say, the more calls that you receive from Avante USA, Ltd., the more likely you are to have success with your claim against the collection agency in court.
For example, if you received a call from Avante USA, Ltd., at your place of employment and you told the representative you weren’t allowed to receive calls at work, they must stop calling there. If they continued to call you two or three times a day at work – and you have documented these calls – you are likely to have success with your claim against them for harassment and FDCPA violations in court. If you don’t tell them to stop calling you at work and they continue to do so, then you will not be able to pursue a claim against them and prove harassment. Any time you receive a call from Avante USA, Ltd., you should make note of it, indicating the date and time of the call, summarizing the conversation, and making note of the representative’s name.
Stop The Harassing Calls
If you believe you are being harassed by Avante USA, Ltd., you should consult with an FDCPA lawyer who handles such claims in your state. With the help of an attorney, you are much more likely to succeed with your claim. FDCPA lawyers work on the contingency basis, which means they aren’t paid until you win your claim.
