Alleged Violations against Hearshe Kemp, LLC

According to PACER, on or around November 29, 2012, Hearshe Kemp, LLC called an Illinois consumer to collect a debt, and left a voicemail. The consumer later said that the caller did not identify themselves as a debt collector.

On or around December 5, 2012, the consumer returned the call and advised Hearshe Kemp, LLC that she retained an attorney to file for bankruptcy and provided the attorney’s contact information. The agent she spoke to allegedly replied that, since she was filing bankruptcy instead of paying the debt, they would send someone to pick her up.

When the consumer asked what they meant by pick her up, the agent allegedly implied they had the power to arrest her.

Feeling harassed by Hearshe Kemp, LLC, the consumer hired a consumer attorney and sued the firm for allegedly violating the FDCPA in the following ways:

  • Using false, deceptive and misleading means to collect a debt
  • Using unfair or unconscionable means to collect a debt
  • Threatening actions that could not legally be taken
  • Failing to identify itself as a debt collector in all communications

The matter was later dismissed.
