Are You Being Called By Brown’s New Credit Bureau?*

Stop the
Harassment

You have legal rights. We can help.

 


Collection agencies can be your worst nightmare when they’re trying to collect money that you can’t afford to pay. Sometimes the communications can be so intense that you’re tempted to declare bankruptcy to stop the harassment.

Before taking that step, understand that you have the right and legal standing to make it stop.

Your Rights Under the FDCPA

The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, or FDCPA, is a consumer protection law that restricts what a collection agency can do to collect money from you. Any debt collectors that use these types of abuses to harass you into paying have broken the law and can face serious consequences.

  • Saying they have court papers to serve on you when no lawsuit has ever been filed
  • Shouting and swearing at you
  • Calling you in the middle of the night
  • Ignoring your written request to cease communications
  • Adding high and illegal ‘fees’ to the original debt
  • Using an auto-dialer to send nonstop calls to your cell phone
  • Saying that you can be arrested for not paying a debt

Alleged Violations against Brown’s New Credit Bureau

According to PACER, in or around mid-2017 Brown’s New Credit Bureau started trying to collect a debt from an Arizona consumer. On August 15, the consumer called the agency to inquire about the debt. During the call, the collector allegedly attempted to solicit payment again.

When the consumer asked how long the debt would be reported on his credit report, the company representative allegedly replied that it would be reported for seven to ten years, and that the exact time period was at the discretion of the credit reporting agency when this is actually not the case.

Feeling harassed by Brown’s New Credit Bureau, the consumer hired an FDCPA attorney and sued the company for allegedly using false, deceptive, and misleading means to collect a debt.

The matter was later settled.
