The Consumer Sentinel, which collects complaint information from both consumer watchdog groups and law enforcement agencies, says that one-quarter of the complaints it receives each year involve debt collectors.

Collection agencies have a wide range of legal tactics they can use to collect money, but they often use bullying and harassing pressure tactics to get paid.

Your Rights Under the FDCPA

The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, or FDCPA, is a consumer protection law that penalizes debt collectors who take their collection tactics too far. If you are subjected to abuses like those below, see a consumer lawyer about protecting your rights.

  • Using profane and obscene language on the phone or in voicemails
  • Contacting you directly when they know that you have an attorney
  • Saying that they will file a lawsuit that day if you don’t pay
  • Trying to collect when you refuse to pay
  • Calling you at work when they know that your boss doesn’t allow such calls
  • Demanding payment for a time-barred debt

Alleged Violations against 21st Mortgage Corporation

According to PACER, on November 24, 2014, 21st Mortgage Corporation sent a letter to an Illinois consumer demanding payment for a mortgage debt. The consumer had filed a Chapter 7 bankruptcy in 2011 and included that debt, but the phone calls, letters, and emails from the company allegedly continued.

Feeling harassed by 21st Mortgage Corporation, he hired a consumer lawyer and sued the company for allegedly:

  • Trying to collect a discharged debt
  • Contacting him directly when he was represented by an attorney regarding the debt
  • Using harassing and abusive means to collect a debt
  • Using false, deceptive, and misleading means to collect a debt
  • Misrepresenting the character, amount, or legal status of the debt

The matter was later dismissed.
