Are you being called by Fairway Capital Recovery, LLC?* Here’s what you need to know

No one wants to hear from a debt collector, especially when you know you can’t afford to pay what they’re demanding. It’s even worse when they are rude and aggressive each time they get you on the phone. Fortunately, you have rights no matter how much you owe, and when collection agencies disregard them, it can mean trouble. For them, not you.

Your Rights Under the FDCPA

In 1977 Congress passed the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, or FDCPA, to protect indebted consumers from unethical debt collection tactics. Since then, it has been illegal for a third-party collection agency to use methods like the following while attempting to collect a debt:

  • Calling before 8:00 a.m. and after 9:00 p.m. in the consumer’s time zone
  • Trying to collect more than the law and / or the original creditor agreement allow
  • Talking to anyone except the consumer, their spouse, or their attorney about the debt
  • Use profane or obscene language
  • Failing or refusing to identify themselves as debt collectors in every communication
  • Demanding amounts not supported by law or the original creditor agreement

Alleged Violations against Fairway Capital Recovery, LLC

According to PACER, on or about November 15, 2012, Fairway Capital Recovery, LLC sent a collection letter to a Wisconsin resident, seeking payment for an outstanding payday loan debt. This letter stated, in part, “This collection agency is licensed by the Division of Banking, P.O. Box 7876, Madison, Wisconsin 53707.’ However, an investigation failed to turn up confirmation that Fairway Capital Recovery, LLC was licensed by the Division of Banking, or any other Wisconsin governmental agency.

Feeling harassed by Fairway Capital Recovery, LLC, she hired a consumer attorney and sued the agency for allegedly violating the FDCPA by using false, deceptive, and misleading means to collect a debt.

The matter was later settled.
