Two years ago, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau reported that nearly one in four consumers felt threatened when collection agencies contacted them. They may not have been aware of their rights, which protect them from such treatment.

How Your Rights Fall Under the FDCPA

The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) creates guidelines for both third-party collection agencies and indebted consumers. If you are dealing with a collection agency that uses these types of ruses to get you to pay, you have grounds to sue them.

  • Impersonating law enforcement
  • Using the telephone to harass you with constant calls
  • Calling at inconvenient times
  • Calling you at work when your employer does not allow such calls
  • Discussing the debt with anyone except you, your spouse, and your attorney

Alleged Violations against RUI Credit Services

According to PACER, on or around May 26, 2009, RUI Credit Services sent a collection letter to a New York consumer about a debt owed to National Grid New York. It implied that if he lost the case, he would be liable for attorney’s fees when there was no law stating the fact.

Feeling harassed by RUI Credit Services, the consumer engaged an attorney and sued the company for using false, deceptive, and misleading means to collect a debt.

The matter was later settled.
