Are You Being Called By Datamax Corporation?* Here’s What You Need to Know

When debt collectors are chasing you, hearing the phone ring can result in enormous stress. You might be tempted to declare bankruptcy, but there are other legal measures you can take to make the harassment stop.

Your Rights Under the FDCPA

Although the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act requires them to behave professionally, too many debt collectors abuse your rights to collect a payment. No matter what they tell you, actions like the following are illegal.

  • Swearing, yelling, and using profanities
  • Threatening to have you arrested
  • Calling you at your workplace
  • Demanding amounts that are not supported by law
  • Pretending to be attorneys or police officers on the phone
  • Trying to collect when you refuse to pay

Alleged Violations against Datamax Corporation**

According to PACER, on or around August 18, 2016, Datamax Corporation sent a collection letter to a North Carolina consumer to collect a debt. Although this medical obligation had been included in a Chapter 13 filing, the letter stated, in part, that if she did not pay the account in full, the agency would report the account “to credit bureaus, for listing in credit files” thirty-five days after its initial letter. The letter also claimed that her failure to pay the debt “may affect any future state income tax refund.”

Feeling harassed by Datamax Corporation, the consumer sued the company for the following alleged violations:

  • Misrepresenting the legal status of the debt
  • Threatening to report inaccurate information to the credit bureaus

The matter was later dismissed.
