Alleged Violations against Central Collection Corporation

According to PACER, on or about November 1, 2016, Central Collection Corporation sent a debt collection letter to a Wisconsin resident, demanding payment for an alleged debt.

The letter, which appeared to be generated by computer, stated that the “Client Name” was “920.71” and “Total Due” was $0.00. Her attorney had to research her file to determine that the company was actually trying to collect a medical debt on behalf of “Allergic Diseases S.C.”

Feeling harassed by Central Collection Corporation, she hired a consumer attorney and sued the company for allegedly violating the FDCPA by using false, deceptive, and misleading means to collect a debt. The matter was later dismissed.
