If you’re afraid to answer your phone, expecting another round of verbal abuse from a debt collector, you’re not the only one. Thousands of people across the country have a debt in collections, and judging by the complaints to the Federal Trade Commission each year, collectors aren’t always civil when pursuing it.

Your Rights Under the FDCPA

The U.S. Congress passed the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, or FDCPA, in September 1977. It regulates what these debt collectors can say or do while attempting to collect payment for a debt, and provides consumers with a way to protect themselves when confronted with an unethical and abusive collection agency.

  • Swearing and calling you names
  • Calling you at work when your employer does not allow such calls
  • Telling you that you will arrested if you don’t pay
  • Persisting in trying to collect a disputed debt
  • Calling at inconvenient times
  • Calling your family and telling them that you owe money

Alleged Violations against Ability Recovery Services

According to PACER, in or around July 2015, Ability Recovery Services started contacting a Pennsylvania consumer to collect a debt. She complained that the messages on her voicemail did not identify the callers as debt collectors. Instead, they simply said they were with ‘ARS’.

Feeling harassed by Ability Recovery Services, she hired consumer lawyer and sued the company for:

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

The matter was later resolved.
