You have legal rights. We can help.


Abusive debt collectors are becoming more and more bold. They tend to earn a commission for each debt they collect, so they freely employ pressure tactics and even chase people for debts that are too old or were discharged in bankruptcy.

None of these tactics are legal.

Your Rights Under the FDCPA

When the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, or FDCPA, became law on March 20, 1978, the goal was -and still is- to protect consumers from unfair, deceptive, and abusive debt collection practices.

Any third-party collection agency that uses these types of strategies can be fined and put out of business.

  • Using profane or obscene language
  • Refusing to validate the debt and prove that they are authorized to collect it
  • Calling anyone except you, your spouse, or attorney about the debt
  • Calling you before 8:00 a.m. and after 9:00 p.m. in your time zone
  • Threatening action they are not in a position to legally take
  • Failing to report a debt as disputed to the credit bureaus

Alleged Violations against LendingClub Corporation

According to PACER, on or around June 16, 2017, a representative of LendingClub Corporation sent a collection letter to a New York consumer.

He alleged that it failed to advise him that the amount demanded could increase due to interest, late fees, and other fees.

Feeling harassed by the LendingClub Corporation, the consumer retained legal counsel and sued the company for using false, deceptive, and misleading means to collect a debt.

The matter was later settled.
