You have legal rights. We can help.


Are you dealing with rude and intrusive calls from debt collectors? Are your friends, family, and co-workers being contacted with details about your alleged debt?

If so, you are understandably upset, but remember: you do not have to tolerate such mistreatment. No matter how much you owe, you have rights, and an attorney can help you assert them.

Your Rights Under the FDCPA

The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, or FDCPA, grants you the right to dispute a debt and tell third-party collection agencies to cease all contact. It also prohibits the use of activities like those below when collecting or attempting to collect a debt.

  • Using profane and obscene language
  • Claiming that you can be arrested, have your assets seized, or have your wages garnished for nonpayment
  • Reporting inaccurate information to the credit bureaus
  • Asking you rude questions like why you don’t pay your bills
  • Pretending to be attorneys, police officers, or federal agents
  • Calling at unreasonable and inconvenient hours

Alleged Violations against Check Plus Systems

Teri Sbrissa vs. Check Plus Systems*

According to PACER, Check Plus Systems began calling Florida resident Teri Sbrissa in November 2010, both on her cell phone and at her brother’s home. One collector, Mr. Tucker, allegedly threatened her with arbitration and legal action on March 15, 2011 and said he would see her “in court.”

Feeling harassed by Check Plus Systems, Ms. Sbrissa hired a consumer attorney and sued the company for allegedly violating the FDCPA in the following ways:

  • Using false, deceptive, and misleading means to collect a debt
  • Threatening legal action that could not be taken
  • Failing to identify itself as a debt collector in all communications
  • Using harassing and abusive means to collect a debt

The matter was later resolved.
