Stop the
Harassment

You have legal rights. We can help.

 


Debt is prevalent today. As long as we don’t experience any financial setbacks, we can usually manage. But what if you lose your job, become too sick to work, or your spouse files for divorce and you have to incur massive legal bills to protect what you own?

That’s when you can start missing payments, and once you miss a certain amount, debt collectors will be calling.

Your Rights Under the FDCPA

The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) regulates what third-party debt collectors may say and do when dealing with indebted consumers. They are legally required to be professional and transparent at all times, and refrain from activities like the following:

  • Using profane or obscene language
  • Failing to identify all communications as coming from a debt collector
  • Calling you at work after you’ve already told them that your employer doesn’t let you take personal calls
  • Persisting in calling you even after you dispute the debt
  • Making threats they cannot legally follow up on, such as having you arrested
  • Calling you before 8:00 a.m. and after 9:00 p.m. in your time zone

Alleged Violations against Accounts Service of Colorado Ltd.

Kimberly Bergen vs. Accounts Service of Colorado Ltd. et al*

According to PACER, in 2000 Accounts Service of Colorado Ltd. began calling Iowa resident Kimberly Bergen to collect a debt that had been included in an earlier bankruptcy. She mailed a dispute letter, but the company allegedly failed to report the account as disputed to the credit bureaus or reinvestigate the debt. As a result she was unable to obtain a real estate loan and other credit.

Feeling harassed by Accounts Service of Colorado Ltd., Ms. Bergen hired a consumer attorney and sued the company for allegedly violating the FDCPA by communicating false information to the credit bureaus.

The matter was later dismissed.
