Are You Being Called By Nashville Adjustment Bureau?*

Stop the
Harassment

You have legal rights. We can help.

 


Even the most financially responsible person can find themselves snowed under by debt. Unfortunately, collection agencies are rarely sympathetic about the whys and wherefores, and can be nasty when you don’t pay in full.

As much as they want your money, though, federal law prohibits them from harassing you to get it.

Your Rights Under the FDCPA

The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, or FDCPA, protects consumers from unethical third-party debt collection practices. Tactics like those below are illegal when used to bully or deceive a consumer into paying a debt.

  • Calling you outside of the hours of 8:00 a.m. – 9:00 p.m. in your time zone
  • Contacting you at work after you tell them that your boss won’t let you take such calls
  • Using profane or obscene language
  • Making legally insupportable threats, such as wage garnishment and asset seizure
  • Calling you at work if they know that your employer does not permit such calls
  • Failing to identify themselves as debt collectors in each communication

Alleged Violations against Nashville Adjustment Bureau

According to PACER, on or about December 28, 2009, Nashville Adjustment Bureau sent a collection letter to a Pennsylvania resident. It claimed that he owed $105.05, although he denied incurring the debt.

A second demand letter followed over two weeks later, within the 30-day dispute period. The plaintiff claimed that he never received additional information like when the alleged account went into default, etc.

Feeling harassed by Nashville Adjustment Bureau, Mr. Silverman 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
  • Sending a demand letter within the statutory dispute period

The matter was later dismissed.
