Called By NU Island Partners, LLC? Here’s What to Know*

Stop the
Harassment

You have legal rights. We can help.

 


When you’ve lost your job, paying your bills can become impossible. Your personal difficulties, however, don’t concern the debt collector who is trying to collect the account. They may even threaten you with arrest or public exposure to scare you into paying. If this happens, they’re breaking the law and you can sue.

Your Rights Under the FDCPA

The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, or FDCPA, is a consumer protection law that protects consumers from being harassed and threatened by collection agencies. Third-party debt collectors are prohibited from using tactics like those below to collect a debt.

  • Reporting inaccurate information to the credit bureaus
  • Using profane and obscene language
  • Claiming that you can have your wages garnished for nonpayment
  • Calling you abusive names
  • Pretending to be attorneys, police officers, or federal agents
  • Calling at unreasonable and inconvenient hours

Alleged Violations against NU Island Partners, LLC*

According to information on the PACER website, in or around November 2012, a representative of NU Island Partners, LLC tried to collect a debt from a New York consumer by filing a lawsuit against her. She did not learn about the action until a wage garnishment order went through and, upon reviewing the court files, determined that the notice of the lawsuit may have been improperly delivered.

Feeling harassed by NU Island Partners, LLC, the consumer hired an attorney and took action against the firm for:

  • Misrepresenting the character, amount, or legal status of the debt
  • Using unfair and unconscionable means to collect a debt

The matter was later settled.
