Called By GC Services International? Here’s What to Know

Stop the
Harassment

You have legal rights. We can help.

 


Some collection agencies will stop at nothing to collect money from consumers. Methods include abusive calls, pushy and rude letters, and lawsuits – even when they are not legally entitled to collect on the debt. If you’re being targeted in this manner, contact a consumer attorney to help you fight back.

Your Rights Under the FDCPA

The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, or FDCPA, penalizes agencies that use collection methods like the following, so if a debt collector goes too far, you have grounds to file a lawsuit against them.

  • Using profane and obscene language
  • Discussing your debt with your friends
  • Reporting false information to the credit bureaus
  • Failing to identify themselves as debt collectors
  • Contacting you even after you dispute a debt
  • Refusing to provide you with information about the debt

>Alleged Violations against GC Services International*

According to PACER, on or around August 18, 2016, GC Services International sent a demand letter to an Illinois consumer. It stated that the balance due was $523.70, but stated, in part, “The balance that has been placed in collections may include the cost of your leased DISH Network equipment.” He claimed that it did not clearly inform him whether or not the balance included equipment charges.

Feeling harassed by GC Services International, the consumer sued the agency for:

  • Using false, deceptive, and misleading means to collect a debt
  • Failing to clarify the nature of the debt

The matter was later settled.
