Are you being called by Capital Alliance Financial, LLC?* Here’s what you need to know

If you’re being chased by debt collectors for overdue financial accounts, it’s normal to be stressed and worried when you don’t know your rights as a consumer. Fortunately, those rights include the ability to tell the collector to stop contacting you effective immediately and suing them for violation of the FDCPA when they don’t.

Your Rights Under the FDCPA

The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, or FDCPA, grants protections and rights to indebted consumers. It mandates that third-party debt collectors may not use methods like those below to collect debt payments from you.

  • Calling at inconvenient times, usually before 8:00 a.m. and after 9:00 p.m
  • Calling you at work after they’ve been advised that such calls are not allowed
  • Telling you that you can be arrested and imprisoned if you do not pay the amount they are demanding
  • Contacting you directly even after you’ve hired an attorney to represent you in the matter
  • Using abusive and/or obscene language
  • Keep contacting you even after you dispute a debt or demand its validation

Alleged Violations against Capital Alliance Financial, LLC

According to PACER, in a letter dated December 27, 2011, Capital Alliance Financial, LLC attempted to collect a debt from a Minnesota resident. She had already received a collection letter from the original creditor, U.S. Bank, the previous November, and this new demand identified Capital Alliance Financial, LLC as the creditor instead.

In light of the existing claim against her by U.S. Bank, the resident felt that the letter from the collection agency put her in the unfair position of forcing her to deal with two different law firms representing two different alleged creditors simultaneously pursuing her for the same alleged debt.

Feeling harassed by Capital Alliance Financial, LLC, she hired a consumer attorney and sued the company for allegedly violating the FDCPA in the following ways:

The matter was later dismissed.
