Are you being called by Global Acceptance Credit Company?* Here’s what you need to know.

People can experience financial difficulties through no fault of their own, but once they miss a certain number of debt payments, the collection calls and letters soon start. Not all collectors are civil or professional when they go after your money. You don’t have to put up with harassment and abuse, however.

Your Rights Under the FDCPA

The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, or FDCPA, prohibits third-party debt collectors from employing tactics like the following while collecting or attempting to collect a debt.

  • Shouting and using profanities
  • Telling you that you can be imprisoned if you don’t pay
  • Demanding amounts that exceed the original debt total
  • Calling at inconvenient times and unreasonable times
  • Contacting your at work after learning that the employer does not permit such calls
  • Reporting false information to the credit bureaus

Alleged Violations against Global Acceptance Credit Company

According to PACER, on or about March 22, 2012 Global Acceptance Credit Company called the brother of a Michigan resident to collect a consumer debt the Michigan resident allegedly owed to Everest Institute. The collector allegedly told the plaintiff’s brother to get his brother to call them back. On two occasions, the plaintiff allegedly spoke with company representatives who did not identify themselves as debt collectors.

Feeling harassed by Global Acceptance Credit Company, he hired a consumer attorney and sued the company for allegedly violating the FDCPA.

The matter was later settled.
