It doesn’t take much to be overcome by debt. Many consumers who always paid their bills on time lose their jobs or are hit with a catastrophic illness that puts them far behind. Debt collectors are rarely sympathetic about the cause of your misfortune, however.
They want your money, and sometimes they break the law to get it.
Your Rights Under the FDCPA
All consumers in the U.S. have rights under the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, or FDCPA. This law permits them to dispute a debt, tell a collection agency to stop calling, and sue any agency that subjects them to collection methods like the following:
- Threatening to take you to court
- Leaving vague messages that do not identify them as debt collectors
- Calling you at work even when they know that such calls violate company policy
- Yelling and swearing at you over the phone
- Harassing you over someone else’s debt
- Misrepresenting the amount of the debt

Alleged Violations against Condor Securitization Trust
According to PACER, on or around early 2013, Condor Securitization Trust allegedly attempted to collect a debt from a Pennsylvania consumer by repossessing a vehicle that she had purchased from and financed through them.
The company claimed that she had defaulted on the loan, a fact that she disputed.
Feeling harassed by Condor Securitization Trust, the consumer consulted an attorney before suing the company for using unfair and unconscionable means to collect a debt.
The matter was later settled.
