You have legal rights. We can help.


Are you being contacted every day by a debt collector who is aggressive and disrespectful? If the answer is yes, they are breaking the law. Debt collectors are legally allowed to contact you and discuss the account, but bullying and threats are illegal and penalized accordingly.

Your Rights Under the FDCPA

The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, or FDCPA, limits what debt collectors can say or do when communicating with consumers. Actions like the following violate the FDCPA and can result in fines and even license revocation.

● Raising their voice and making threats
● Threatening legal action they cannot take
● Contacting you directly when they know that you have an attorney
● Claiming that you can go to jail for not paying a debt
● Contacting you even after you’ve ordered them to cease communications
● Failing to report your dispute to the credit bureau

Alleged Violations against International Asset Group

According to PACER, in or around March 2012, International Asset Group began calling a New York consumer to collect a debt. He alleged that the company demanded payment during the dispute period, told him that it would sue him and that he needs to have a lawyer call it back, and called him at work without permission to do so. The consumer also said that one collector discussed the debt with his supervisor.

Feeling harassed by International Asset Group, the consumer got a free case review from a consumer lawyer before suing the agency for:

● Threatening to take action that cannot legally be taken
● Talking to a third party about the debt
● Calling him at work

The matter was later settled.
