Are You Being Called By Felt & Lukes?

Stop the
Harassment

You have legal rights. We can help.

 


If nearly every call you get is from a debt collector, you’re probably anxious and stressed. Collection agencies are notorious for going to extreme measures to get consumers to pay debts they can’t afford. Fortunately, there are laws in place to protect you.

Your Rights Under the FDCPA

The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, or FDCPA, protects your rights no matter how much you owe. Any debt collector who subjects you to measures like those below can be fined thousands of dollars and closed permanently.

● Refusing to validate the debt
● Claiming to be police officers or federal agents
● Calling your friends and family and telling them about the debt
● Using an autodialer
● Demanding payment for a debt included in a bankruptcy
● Reporting inaccurate information to the credit bureaus

Alleged Violations against Felt & Lukes

According to PACER, on or around September 2, 2011, Felt & Lukes sent a collection letter to a Wisconsin consumer for a judgement that had been obtained the previous month. The consumer insisted that the letter only referenced a past due amount and did not clarify her right to dispute the debt and receive validation.
Feeling harassed by Felt & Lukes, the consumer sued the firm for:

● Failing to provide information about the debt, such as the name of the original creditor
● Not referencing or explaining her dispute rights

The matter was later settled.
