Last April, NBC News reported the results of a survey from the National Foundation for Credit Counseling. It claimed that 25% of consumers aren’t able to pay their bills on time, and 8% have seen those bills go into collections.

If other statistics are accurate, not all of them will be treated ethically or fairly by debt collectors.

Your Rights Under the FDCPA

The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) was specifically designed and passed to protect consumers from being mistreated by third-party collection agencies. It imposes stern penalties on companies that try to collect debts by:

  • Calling you outside the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 9:00 p.m
  • Sending pre-recorded calls to your cell phone.
  • Continuing to call after you tell them to stop
  • Failing to advise the credit reporting agencies that you dispute a debt
  • Talking to your friends and family and telling them about your debt
  • Going after debts that were discharged in an earlier bankruptcy

Alleged Violations against RAB, Inc.

According to PACER, in November 2013, RAB, Inc. sent a collection email to the employer of a Florida consumer who allegedly owed a mortgage deficiency balance after his home was foreclosed on. The email went to a general mailbox, so the consumer’s coworkers read it, causing him great embarrassment.

Feeling harassed by RAB, Inc., he engaged the services of a consumer lawyer and sued the firm for:

  • Making details about his debt known to third parties
  • Using harassing and abusive means to collect a debt
  • Failing to identify itself as a debt collector in all communications
  • Using unfair and unconscionable means to collect a debt

The matter was later settled.
