Are you dealing with a debt collector who won’t leave you alone? Do they call you day and night and embarrass you at work? Before you contemplate filing bankruptcy to stop the unwanted contact, learn more about how the law protects you as an indebted consumer.

Your Rights Under the FDCPA

All consumers are protected by the federal Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA). Any third-party debt collector that ignores your debt dispute, keeps calling you after being asked to stop, or uses any of these actions to make you pay can be fined and even closed down.

  • Swearing and using profane language
  • Calling at all hours of the day and night
  • Refusal to provide you with information about the debt
  • Ignoring a formal cease communications request
  • Calling before 8:00 a.m. and after 9:00 p.m. in your time zone
  • Discussing the debt with your family, friends, and co-workers

Alleged Violations against PYOD, LLC

According to PACER, on or around January 3, 2018, PYOD, LLC allegedly sent a collection letter to a Texas consumer through an agent. It stated, in part:

The law limits how long you can be sued on a debt. Because of the age of your debt, PYOD LLC will not sue you for it and PYOD LLC will not report it to any credit reporting agency.

Notwithstanding the fact that the debt was time-barred, PYOD, LLC requested payment for it and even offered payment arrangements.

Feeling harassed by PYOD, LLC, the consumer hired a consumer attorney and sued the company for the following alleged FDCPA violations:

  • Using false, deceptive, and misleading means to collect a debt
  • Misrepresenting the legal status of the debt
  • Threatening legal action not intended to be taken

The matter was later dismissed.
