  • Pretending to be members of law enforcement
  • Telling you that you have committed a crime and will be arrested if you don’t pay

Alleged Violations By Rapid Collection Systems, Inc.

According to PACER, on or about July 27, 2007 at 9:10 a.m., a Rapid Collection Systems, Inc. employee named Terry Cannon called an Arizona resident and advised that he was attempting to collect a debt allegedly due to an apartment complex.

He later claimed that no debt validation followed this initial communication.

Mr. Cannon allegedly called again on or about August 15, 2007 and only left his name and phone number on the answering machine. There was allegedly no disclosure stating that he was a debt collector seeking to collect a debt.

Feeling harassed by Rapid Collection Systems, Inc., the consumer hired a consumer attorney and sued the company for allegedly violating the FDCPA by:

  • Failing to send a debt validation letter
  • Using harassing and abusive means to collect a debt
  • Using false, deceptive and misleading means to collect a debt
  • Using unfair and unconscionable means to collect a debt

The matter was later settled.
