Are you being called by Accurate Collection Services?* Here’s what you need to know

Unethical debt collectors harass people in several different way. Common examples include swearing at you, calling every day, and threatening to seize your home. Such behavior is 100% illegal, but these offenders bet on the fact that most consumers are too unfamiliar with their rights to protest.

Your Rights Under the FDCPA

Not all debt collectors are unethical but enough of them are so abusive that the Federal Trade Commission receives multiple complaints every year. The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) makes it illegal to use tactics like those below to collect a debt, so any agency that mistreats consumers risks serious penalties.

  • Claiming that you owe an amount that’s not supported by law or the original creditor agreement
  • Calling at inconvenient times, normally before 8:00 a.m. and after 9:00 p.m., in your time zone
  • Refusing to prove that a debt is valid and they are authorized to collect it
  • Using profane and obscene language
  • Failing or refusing to report a debt as disputed to the credit bureaus
  • Threatening legal actions they cannot take or have no intention of taking

Alleged Violations against Accurate Collection Services

Linda Roglen vs. Accurate Collection Services*

According to PACER, beginning in or around March 2014, Accurate Collection Services representatives allegedly started placing collection calls to New Jersey resident Linda Roglen. She disputed the alleged payday loan debt and requested no further contact, but the calls allegedly continued. One collector allegedly threatened that unless she made payment on the debt, she could be served “with court papers.” Another call was allegedly placed to Ms. Roglen’s elderly mother, during which the collector informed her about Linda’s debt and asked for credit card information to pay it.

Feeling harassed by Accurate Collection Services, Ms. Roglen hired a consumer attorney and sued the company for violating the FDCPA in the following ways:

  • Discussing the alleged debt with an uninvolved third party
  • Using harassing and abusive means to collect a debt
  • Harassing her by phone
  • Using false, deceptive, and misleading means to collect a debt
  • Misrepresenting the character, amount, or legal status of the debt
  • Using unfair and unconscionable means to collect a debt

The matter was later dismissed.
