Stop the
Harassment

You have legal rights. We can help.

 


Once you miss a certain number of debt payments, eventually a collection agency will either be hired by your creditors or buy the debt and attempt to collect it themselves.

While contacting you to discuss payment is legal, harassing you is not. Read on to learn more about your rights as an indebted consumer.

Your Rights Under the FDCPA

In 1977 Congress passed the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) to stop abusive behavior on the part of third-party collection agencies. Under the FDCPA, any company that uses collection actions like those below risks significant sanctions.

  • Using profane or obscene language
  • Telling you that you can be arrested for not paying your debts
  • Calling you at inconvenient times and places, such as before 8:00 a.m. and after 9:00 p.m. in your time zone
  • Calling you at work if they know what such calls are not allowed
  • Telling your friends, neighbors, and co-workers that you owe money
  • Failing or refusing to identify themselves as debt collectors trying to collect a debt

Alleged Violations against Direct Asset Management of Royalton

According to PACER, on or around January 24, 2016, Direct Asset Management of Royalton attempted to collect a debt from a Minnesota consumer by repossessing her vehicle. The collector informed her that she was “$900.00 behind on her payments.”

The consumer exclaimed, “No you cannot take my car, this can’t be right, I have receipts showing all of my recent payments!” The collector allegedly responded that her receipts meant nothing to him and that he was there to take the vehicle regardless of whether she had receipts or documents providing evidence of recent payment. He then proceeded to take the car.

Feeling harassed by Direct Asset Management of Royalton, the consumer retained an attorney and sued the agency for allegedly using unfair and unconscionable means to collect a debt.

The matter was later settled.
