Are you being called by CBV Collections, Inc.?* Here’s what you need to know.

Debt can become overwhelming without advance warning. Unless you have a sizable emergency fund, all it can take is job loss, illness or a financial crisis like a divorce to send your monthly obligations into arrears. When debt collectors begin to contact you, you might be tempted to declare bankruptcy to stop the embarrassing calls and letters. Before you take that step, be aware that harassing indebted consumers is against the law.

Your Rights Under the FDCPA

The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, or FDCPA, regulates what third party debt collectors may say and do while trying to collect a consumer debt. Activities that are now prohibited include:

  • Swearing and calling you names
  • Calling you at work after you’ve told them that your boss does not permit such calls
  • Talking to uninvolved parties such as your friends, family, and co-workers about the debt
  • Calling you before 8:00 a.m. or after 9:00 p.m. in your time zone
  • Demanding an amount that is not supported by law or the original debt agreement
  • Pretending to be police officers or federal agents

Alleged Violations against CBV Collections, Inc.

According to PACER,On April 2, 2014, CBV Collections, Inc. mailed a collection letter to a Georgia resident. This letter stated in part, “IF THIS ACCOUNT IS NOT PAID IN FULL WITHIN 30 DAYS, THIS COLLECTION WILL BECOME A PERMANENT PART OF YOUR CREDIT FILE FOR 6 YEARS 11 MONTHS.”

The resident felt that demanding payment within 30 days overshadowed her dispute rights. Feeling harassed by CBV Collections, Inc., she hired a consumer attorney and sued the agency for allegedly violating the FDCPA by using false, deceptive, and misleading means to collect a debt.

The matter was later dismissed.
