Stop the
Harassment

You have legal rights. We can help.

 


The Federal Trade Commission receives thousands of complaints about abusive debt collectors every year. These agencies attempt to hasten the collection process by harassing you, embarrassing you publicly, and making threats. If a debt collector treats you in this manner, call an attorney.

Your Rights Under the FDCPA

The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, or FDCPA, protects you from intimidation and harassment by third-party collection agencies. Debt collectors are prohibited from using methods like the following to intimidate you into paying what they demand:

  • Calling you at an inconvenient time, such as before 8:00 a.m. and after 9:00 p.m. in your time zone
  • Discussing the debt with uninvolved third parties like your friends, family and neighbors
  • Claiming that you can be arrested, have your assets seized, or have your wages garnished if they do not pay
  • Refusing or failing the validate the debt
  • Calling you at work after you indicate that your employer does not allow personal calls
  • Claiming that you can be sent to jail for not paying your debts

Alleged Violations against Interstate Credit Control, Inc.

Taprika Norvell vs. Interstate Credit Control, Inc.*

According to PACER, Interstate Credit Control, Inc. started pursuing Minnesota resident Taprika Norvell for a debt she had allegedly incurred in 2009. On January 31, 2012, Ms. Norvell sent letters to three consumer reporting agencies- Equifax, TransUnion, and Experian- disputing the validity of Interstate Credit Control, Inc.’s asserted right to collect the alleged debt. In June she sent another set of letters to the credit bureaus and, in July, one to the agency directly, disputing the debt and questioning their right to collect it.

On or about December 10, 2012, Ms. Norvell requested her credit reports from Experian, Equifax and TransUnion. The debt did not appear on her Experian account, but according to both the Equifax Report and the TransUnion Report, Interstate Credit Control, Inc. last reported the debt as valid and delinquent in November, 2012.

Feeling harassed by Interstate Credit Control, Inc., Ms. Norvell hired a consumer attorney and sued the company for allegedly violating the FDCPA in the following ways:

  • Using false, deceptive and misleading means to collect a debt
  • Failing to report the debt as disputed

The matter was later dismissed.
