Are you being called by Delta Financial Services?* Here’s what you need to know.

While some people go into debt with the intention of never paying their bills, others are hardworking individuals who became ill, lost their jobs, or experienced a financial setback that made it impossible to stay current with their debt payments. Debt collectors don’t always differentiate- they will hound everyone equally. If they cross the line with you, you have standing to fight back.

Your Rights Under the FDCPA

The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) was passed in 1977 to prevent third-party collection agencies from harassing consumers. Since then, collection methods like those listed below have been illegal and any debt collector that applies them can be barred from the profession.

  • Using profane or obscene language
  • Leaving messages that do not identify them as debt collectors
  • Calling you at work after you’ve told them that your employer won’t let you take such calls
  • Refusing to prove that a debt is valid and they are authorized to collect it
  • Ignoring a formal cease communications request
  • Calling at all hours of the day and night

Is Delta Financial Services?

Company Profile: Delta Financial Services

Delta Financial Services is a debt collection company located in Lafayette, Louisiana. It was established in 1985, has approximately 16 employees, and is managed by Guy Rials.

Alleged Violations against Delta Financial Services

Plaintiff vs. Delta Financial Services*

According to PACER, on or about March 26, 2014, Delta Financial Services sent a collection letter to a Georgia resident. The letter included a bolded headline that stated “FINAL DEMAND FOR PAYMENT” and further stated, in part, “Demand for this claim was sent to you previously. According to our records neither payment nor valid reason for non-payment has been received. We must make final disposition of this claim within ten days time. To avoid further measures remit by cash, check, or money order immediately.”

When the Plaintiff was unable to pay the debt, Delta Financial Services sent him another, nearly identical letter titled “FINAL DEMAND FOR PAYMENT”, leading him to conclude that the first communication had been calculated to alarm him and expedite payment.

Feeling harassed by Delta Financial Services, The Plaintiff hired a consumer attorney and sued the company for allegedly violating the FDCPA by using false, deceptive, and misleading means to collect a debt.

The matter was later dismissed.
