Is Rubin & Yates calling you? Here’s what you need to know.

Collection agencies encourage their employees to say and do things that convince the debtor to pay the amount owed, quickly and in full. Unfortunately, harassment, deception, and abuse are often included in these persuasion tactics. Many consumers yield under pressure and either pay or declare bankruptcy, unaware that the law protects them from abusive debt collectors.

Your Rights Under the FDCPA

The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, or FDCPA, was passed in 1977 to protect indebted consumers from unethical and manipulative collection tactics. Actions like those below are illegal when used to pressure people into paying a debt.

  • Calling at all hours of the day and night
  • Using profane and obscene language
  • Making threats they cannot legally follow up on, such as sending you to jail or seizing your assets
  • Demanding amounts that exceed the original debt
  • Telling your friends, neighbors and co-workers that you owe money and they are trying to collect it from you

Alleged Violations against Rubin & Yates

According to PACER, in February 2013 Pennsylvania a resident learned that Rubin & Yates had allegedly contacted her mother and left a message saying that she owed a debt, a complaint had been filed against her, and if she did not respond, the matter would go to court. No lawsuit, however, was ever filed.

She hired a consumer attorney and sued Rubin & Yates for allegedly violating the FDCPA in the following ways:

  • Discussing her debt with uninvolved third parties
  • Using false, deceptive and misleading means to collect a debt
  • Threatening legal action it did not intend to take

A judgment was later entered in favor of the plaintiff, and against Rubin & Yates, in the amount of $1,690.00.
