Are you being called by Accelerated Financial Solutions?* Here’s what you need to know.

According to ACA International, the Association of Credit and Collection Professionals, collection agencies make an average of over one billion contacts with consumers every year. While many of these situations are resolved swiftly and amicably, others are rife with complaints of abusive debt collection practices. If you encounter a hostile collector, it is important to know your rights.

Your Rights Under the FDCPA

Debt collectors can be overbearing when trying to get you to pay, but don’t forget that you have rights. The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, or FDCPA, prohibits collection agencies from using abusive collection tactics like those below:

  • Using profane and abusive language
  • Calling you at work after you tell them that you can’t take personal calls there
  • Demanding outrageous ‘fees’ in addition to the original debt
  • Calling you at an inconvenient time, such as before 8:00 a.m. and after 9:00 p.m. in your time zone
  • Telling you that you can be arrested and sent to prison if you don’t pay
  • Discussing the debt with uninvolved third parties

Alleged Violations against Accelerated Financial Solutions

Joe Silverman vs. Accelerated Financial Solutions*

According to PACER, in early to mid-2013 Accelerated Financial Solutions allegedly contacted Colorado resident Joe Silverman on an ongoing basis to collect an alleged debt. Calls were made to both his business and personal cell phones. Mr. Silverman complained that even though Accelerated Financial Solutions had his contact details, the company persisted in calling his in-laws, telling them that it was urgent that he respond.

During one conversation, Mr. Silverman told the collector that he was not aware of any debt and wanted validation. Moments after he hung up, Accelerated Financial Solutions allegedly called him back using an automated dialer.

Feeling harassed by Accelerated Financial Solutions, Mr. Silverman hired a consumer attorney and sued the company for allegedly violating the FDCPA in the following ways:

  • Discussing his debt with uninvolved third parties
  • Using harassing, oppressive, or abusive means to collect a debt
  • Using false, deceptive and misleading means to collect a debt
  • Using unfair and unconscionable means to collect a debt
  • Failing to validate the debt

The matter was later dismissed.
