Stop The Harassment

You have legal rights. We can help.

 

You’ve been trying to pay your debts, but since you lost your job, it’s been nearly impossible. Now debt collectors are calling you every day and making threats that leave you depressed and unable to sleep. Is there anything you can do to make it stop?

Your Rights Under the FDCPA

Debt collectors can be overzealous when trying to get you to pay, but don’t forget that you have rights. The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, or FDCPA, prohibits collection agencies from using abusive collection tactics like those below:

  • Swearing and calling you names
  • Talking to uninvolved parties such as your friends, family, and co-workers about the debt
  • Calling you at your workplace when they know that your employer doesn't permit you to take such calls
  • Demanding outrageous ‘fees’ in addition to the original debt
  • Telling you that you can be arrested and sent to prison if you don’t pay
  • Discussing the debt with uninvolved third parties

Alleged Violations against CMI Credit Mediators, Inc.

According to PACER, on March 1, 2017 CMI Credit Mediators, Inc. sent a Nevada resident a written demand for $37,425.00 on behalf of a boat company. On March 28, he faxed the agency a dispute letter and demanded validation of the debt.

Two days later he received an email stating that it was imperative that he mail a check for the balance of $37,425.00 that day. It was followed on April 17, 2017 by a payment demand that stated in relevant part that: "We have extended to you every possible opportunity to resolve this matter in a prompt and amicable fashion."
Despite two letters calling your attention to this obligation, you have persisted in ignoring this financial responsibility. Feeling harassed by CMI Credit Mediators, Inc., he hired a consumer attorney and sued the company for allegedly violating the FDCPA in the following ways:

  • Failing to send him a debt validation letter
  • Demanding payment within the 30-day dispute period
  • Using false, deceptive and misleading means to collect a debt

The matter was later dismissed.
