Stop the
Harassment

You have legal rights. We can help.

 


When you’ve lost your job, paying your bills can become impossible. Your personal difficulties, however, don’t concern the debt collector who is trying to collect the account.

They may even threaten you with arrest or public exposure to scare you into paying. If this happens, they’re breaking the law and you can sue.

Your Rights Under the FDCPA

The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) restricts what third-party debt collectors can say or do to collect an outstanding debt. Under the FDCPA, the following manipulative and harassing actions (and others like them) are illegal.

  • Using profane and obscene language
  • Contacting your friends, family and co-workers and discussing the debt with them
  • Threatening to call your company’s payroll department and garnish your wages
  • Calling at inconvenient times, such as before 8:00 a.m. and after 9:00 p.m. in your time zone
  • Pretending to be attorneys, police officers, or federal agents
  • Failing to identify themselves during each communication as a debt collector seeking to collect a debt

Alleged Violations against Check Law Recovery Systems, Inc.

According to PACER, on March 22, 2010 a Check Law Recovery Systems, Inc. collector named “Martha” called an Arkansas resident and tried to collect a debt allegedly owed to U.S. Bank.

She requested verification of the debt before she would agree to any payment plans, but Martha allegedly denied having any documentation and stated that she only knew the amount allegedly owed.

She also allegedly told her that if she wanted the debt validated, she would have to contact U.S. Bank herself.

Feeling harassed by Check Law Recovery Systems, Inc., the Arkansas resident hired a consumer attorney and sued the company for allegedly violating the FDCPA in the following ways:

  • Using unfair and unconscionable means to collect a debt
  • Using false, deceptive, and misleading means to collect a debt
  • Failing to send a debt validation letter

The matter was later dismissed.
