Are you being called by Scherr & McClure Law P.A.?* Here’s what you need to know.

Alleged Violations against Scherr & McClure Law P.A.

According to PACER, beginning in or around early 2014, a New York resident was allegedly called by Scherr & McClure, P.A. several times about an alleged debt. He later complained that these messages contained phrases such as “I’m calling with the Law Firm of Scherr & McClure”, which, in his opinion, was intended to give the impression that the communication was from a law office in the practical sense and frighten the listener into believing that litigation was imminent.

Feeling harassed by Scherr & McClure, P.A. and suspecting that such messages were a routine collection tactic, Mr. Stern hired a consumer attorney and launched a class action lawsuit against the firm for the following alleged FDCPA violations:

  • Using false, deceptive or misleading means to collect a debt
  • Implying that there was direct attorney involvement in his case

The matter was later settled.
