You have legal rights. We can help.


Debt collectors have always been known for being brazen, but in recent times, it seems as if they’ve crossed an invisible line and become malicious. They use vile and insulting language when you pick up the phone, threaten lawsuits, and call your friends to tell them what a deadbeat you are.

This conduct is illegal under federal law, and if it happens to you, call an attorney.

Your Rights Under the FDCPA

The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, or FDCPA, protects the rights of consumers who owe money. It allows you to dispute a debt, tell a collector to stop calling and sue them if they use collection methods like the following on you.

  • Threatening action they are not in a position to legally take
  • Failing to report a debt as disputed to the credit bureaus
  • Calling you outside of the hours of 8:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. in your time zone
  • Phoning your friends and family and telling them that you’ve committed a crime
  • Demanding amounts not supported by law or the original creditor agreement
  • Using an auto-dialer to send nonstop calls to your phone
  • Making information about your debt publicly available

Alleged Violations against AscensionPoint Recovery Services

According to PACER, on or about September 14 and 15, 2011, AscensionPoint Recovery Services sent collection letters to a New York consumer who claimed that the estate they were seeking to collect from did not exist.

She had the impression that the agency was trying to collect money from the family members of deceased debtors instead of the estate itself.

Feeling harassed by AscensionPoint Recovery Services, the consumer sought the advice of an FDCPA attorney and sued the company for allegedly:

  • Failing to disclose itself clearly as a debt collector in the letters
  • Using false, deceptive, and misleading means to collect a debt

The matter was later settled.
