Are You Being Called By R.A. Rogers, Inc.?*

Stop the
Harassment

You have legal rights. We can help.

 


The average American household carries a credit card balance of $15,000, suggesting that some some consumers are applying 9% of their income towards paying down the interest alone. This is a difficult practice to maintain, especially if you lose your job. Should this happen, and debt collectors come after you for the balance, you have rights that prohibit mistreatment.

Your Rights Under the FDCPA

The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, or FDCPA, was passed in 1977 to regulate the professional conduct of third-party collection agencies. It prohibits debt collectors from using tactics like the following to settle a debt.

  • Using profane or obscene language
  • Telling you that you can be arrested for not paying your debts
  • Calling you at work if they know or have reason to know what such calls are not allowed
  • Telling your friends and family that you owe money
  • Calling at inconvenient times, such as before 8:00 a.m. and after 9:00 p.m. in your time zone
  • Threatening action they cannot legally take or have no intention of taking

Alleged Violations against R.A. Rogers, Inc.

According to PACER, on or about January 20, 2012 an R.A. Rogers, Inc. collector named “Mr. Smith” called the mother of a Washington consumer and told her that her son had a car repossessed and owed for a deficiency and the alleged amount of the deficiency. When she said that she could not be responsible for contacting him, Mr. Smith allegedly became angry and claimed that he was legally allowed to attempt to collect his debt from his mother using her personal information and that he would continue to call her every day until the consumer returned his calls or words to that effect.

On about January 23, 2013, Mr. Smith called the consumer at work and allegedly became aggressive when told that such calls could not be made to a government phone and said he would keep calling him at work and by any other means possible until a payment arrangement was made.

Feeling harassed by R.A. Rogers, Inc., the consumer hired a consumer attorney and sued the company for allegedly violating the FDCPA in the following ways:

  • Using abusive language
  • Discussing his debt with third parties
  • Using false, deceptive, and misleading means to collect a debt
  • Using an unfair or unconscionable means to attempt to collect a debt

The matter was later dismissed.
