Are you being called by Revenue Management Corporation?* Here's what you need to know.
It’s a hard situation to be in. Debt collectors are calling you several times a day, always demanding payment for debts you can no longer afford. Abusive and embarrassing calls are constantly made to your workplace. You’re tempted to declare bankruptcy to make it stop, but there are other ways to bring the harassment to an end.
Your Rights Under the FDCPA
The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) allows collection agencies to contact you regarding a debt, but they are not allowed to abuse or harass you. Below is a list of collection tactics that violate the FDCPA and can get an agency shut down.
- Demanding amounts not supported by law or the original creditor agreement
- Using profane or obscene language
- Discussing the debt with anyone except you, your spouse, or your attorney
- Contacting you after you have formally requested that all communications cease
- Failing or refusing to report a debt as disputed to the credit bureaus
- Calling before 8:00 a.m. and after 9:00 p.m. in your time zone
Company Profile: Revenue Management Corporation
If you are being called by Revenue Management Corporation, information about the company is below.
Revenue Management Corporation is a debt collection company located in Waltham, Massachusetts. It was originally established in 2001, has 13 employees, and is managed by its President, Donald Aucoin. Records on file at the PACER (Public Access to Court Electronic Records) website confirms that people who felt they were being harassed by Revenue Management Corporation did not hesitate to hire attorneys to help them assert their rights.
Alleged Violations against Revenue Management Corporation
According to PACER, on March 1, 2017, Revenue Management Corporation called a New Hampshire woman to collect an alleged debt. She later complained that the collector made numerous threats and demanded that she pay $6,000, which was six times the amount of the alleged debt. They also allegedly informed the plaintiff that a court action had been filed to collect the money and said that if she did not pay $500 by 4:00 pm, Revenue Management Corporation would continue to pursue legal action.
Feeling harassed by Revenue Management Corporation, the plaintiff hired a consumer attorney and sued the company for allegedly violating the FDCPA in the following ways:
- Failing to validate the debt
- Using unfair and unconscionable means to collect a debt
- Using false, deceptive and misleading means to collect a debt
- Using harassing and abusive means to collect a debt
The matter was later dismissed.

Such awards remind debt collectors that ignoring the FDCPA is rarely a smart move.
