If debt collectors are harassing you by making incessant phone calls, threatening to take you to court, and contacting your friends and family, you may have an unfair debt collection practices claim.

Both federal and state law prohibit collection agencies from using certain practices to collect a debt and if they cross the line, you can sue.

Your Rights Under the FDCPA

The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) is a federal law that governs the interactions of third-party collection agencies with indebted consumers. Actions like those listed below are illegal and can incur serious sanctions from the Federal Trade Commission.

  • Calling before 8:00 a.m. and after 9:00 p.m. in your time zone
  • Discussing the debt with your family, friends, and co-workers
  • Calling you several times per day using an autodialer
  • Using profane or obscene language
  • Threatening you with consequences or actions they can’t legally take or have no intention of taking
  • Contacting you even after you send a cease communications request

The important rights included below apply to each account individually and you have the right to dispute any or all of the accounts included in this notice.

When he called the agency to dispute the debt, the representative allegedly snapped, “You have no valid dispute.” When he sought to confirm whether he could dispute the debt over the phone, the other party allegedly stated, “No, there is no dispute on this amount…that is not a dispute.”

Feeling harassed by Arcadia Recovery Bureau, LLC, the consumer hired a consumer lawyer and sued the firm for allegedly violating the FDCPA by using false, deceptive, and misleading means to collect a debt.
