You have legal rights. We can help.


Owing more money than your current situation allows you to pay back can leave you feeling helpless, angry, and stressed, especially if a debt collector is constantly calling to collect it. If you tell them to stop contacting you, they must comply.

If they don’t, and the situation escalates, there are legal remedies available to you.

How Your Rights Fall Under the FDCPA

If you owe a consumer debt, the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, or FDCPA, controls the ways that third-party debt collectors can collect it. Methods like those below are illegal and can get an agency closed down:

  • Demanding amounts that are higher the amount of the original debt
  • Impersonating law enforcement or federal agents
  • Trying to collect a debt barred by statute
  • Using profane or obscene language
  • Calling you at work when your employer does not allow such calls
  • Failing to report to the credit bureaus that a debt is in dispute

Alleged Violations against Capital Collection Service*

According to PACER, in or around mid-2010 Capital Collection Service began calling a New Jersey consumer to collect a debt. One collector who identified herself as Ms. Lewis allegedly told the consumer,

“I know you type of people. I know what you people do.

I’m gonna check up on you because you’ve probably done this before! You have no idea what you’re talking about.”

The consumer also complained that collectors accused her of fraud and stated that she would be arrested if she did not pay the debt immediately. Other alleged threats including filing legal action and garnishing her wages.

She added that Capital Collection Service misrepresented the amount of the debt and never sent her a validation letter within 5 days of contacting her.

Feeling harassed by Capital Collection Service, the consumer hired an FDCPA lawyer and sued the company for allegedly:

  • Using profane and abusive language
  • Harassing her by phone
  • Misrepresenting the character, amount, or legal status of the debt
  • Threatening to take legal action, without actually intending to do so
  • Using false and deceptive means to collect a debt
  • Failing to send her a debt validation letter
  • The matter was settled at a later date..
