Stop the
Harassment

You have legal rights. We can help.

 


No one wants to hear from a collection agency, especially when you’re in financial straits and can’t afford to pay what they’re demanding. When you refuse many of them can turn rude and relentless. You may be surprised to know, however, that by treating you this way, they are actually breaking the law.

Your Rights Under the FDCPA

The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, or FDCPA, was passed in 1977 to protect consumers from third-party debt collectors who routinely harassed them for payment. Under the FDCPA, actions like the following are illegal when used to pressure consumers into paying a debt.

  • Using profane or obscene language
  • Making threats they cannot legally carry out or have no intention of carrying out
  • Discussing your debt with anyone except you, your spouse, or your attorney
  • Calling at inconvenient times, such as before 8:00 a.m. and after 9:00 p.m.
  • Claiming to be police officials or government agents
  • Failing to report disputed debts as such to the credit bureaus

Alleged Violations against Biorn Corporation, Inc.

According to information on the PACER website, in or around March 2009, Biorn Corporation, Inc. allegedly started calling a New York consumer to collect an equestrian-related debt. The consumer alleged that the calls were prerecorded and came from a person who identified herself as ‘Anne.’

When he spoke to her, he insisted that the debt had been paid to the original creditor before they went out of business and ordered the company to stop calling. However, more calls allegedly followed.

Feeling harassed by Biorn Corporation, Inc., the consumer sued the agency for allegedly:

  • Using false, deceptive, and misleading means to collect a debt
  • Failing to send a debt validation letter
  • Failing to identify itself as a debt collector in all communication

The matter was later dismissed.
