Are you being called by Oregon Credit and Collections Bureau, Inc.?* Here’s what you need to know

Is a debt collector calling you every day, yelling at you and rudely demanding that you pay now or risk wage garnishment, public exposure, or even arrest? If so, they are breaking federal law, and if you file a claim against them, you could be awarded an amount that exceeds the alleged debt.

Your Rights Under the FDCPA

The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, or FDCPA, regulates what third party debt collectors may say and do while contacting you about a debt. Activities like those below can cause an agency to be fined or even closed down.

  • Swearing, yelling, and calling you names
  • Contacting you after you have sent a cease and desist letter
  • Calling you before 8:00 a.m. and after 9:00 p.m. in your time zone
  • Using an autodialer to leave a series of pre-recorded messages
  • Failing to identify themselves as debt collectors trying to collect a debt
  • Calling you at work after you tell them that you can’t take personal calls there

Alleged Violations against Oregon Credit and Collections Bureau, Inc.

According to PACER, in late October 2016, a Wisconsin resident received a collection letter from Oregon Credit and Collections Bureau, Inc., regarding a veterinary debt he believed he had been paying off with the original creditor. The letter stated, in part, “Failure to respond to this debt may adversely affect your credit rating.”

When the plaintiff called the agency he disputed the debt, saying he was not in default on the original agreement. Oregon Credit’s agent allegedly offered no solution and provided no clarification, other than he must pay all amounts they were demanding.

Feeling harassed by Oregon Credit and Collections Bureau, Inc., he hired a consumer attorney and sued the company for allegedly violating the FDCPA in the following ways:

A judgement was entered in favor of the plaintiff.
