Are You Being Called By AAA Collections, Inc.?*

Stop the
Harassment

You have legal rights. We can help.

 


Every year, the Federal Trade Commission receives several complaints about third-party debt collectors. If you are being chased by a collection agency whose tactics border on the abusive, learn about your rights as a consumer, which protect you from such treatment.

Your Rights Under the FDCPA

The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, or FDCPA, was in 1977 to stop the rise in bankruptcies due to debt collector harassment. For over 40 years now it has been illegal to use tactics like those listed below to collect a debt:

  • Reporting incorrect information to the credit bureaus
  • Refusing to provide you with information about the debt upon request
  • Trying to collect when you refuse to pay
  • Showing up at your house to intimidate you
  • Threatening legal actions that they have no intention of taking
  • Pretending to be members of law enforcement

Alleged Violations against AAA Collections, Inc.

According to PACER, in or around April 2010, AAA Collections, Inc. started contacting a Minnesota consumer to collect a debt. She alleged that on or around April 9, a collector left her a voicemail that stated, “I expect this call returned and I expect it returned in a timely manner. My name is David Jensen. My office number is 1-800-611-7370, my extension is 642. I look forward to talking to you.”

Feeling harassed by AAA Collections, Inc., the consumer hired legal counsel and sued the agency for allegedly violating her rights by:

  • Using false, deceptive, and misleading means to collect a debt
  • Failing to identify itself a debt collector in all communications

The matter was later dismissed.
