In these difficult times, even the most financially responsible person can run into problems staying current with their debts. When this happens, a collection agency may be hired to collect any arrears. While collecting debt is legal, no company can bully, harass, or manipulate you into paying.

Your Rights Under the FDCPA

The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) was enacted in 1977 to protect consumers against unfair collection practices. It applies to debts acquired for personal, family, and household purposes and penalizes third-party collection agencies that use unethical practices like those below:

  • Harassing you after you refuse to pay the debt
  • Calling you rude and abusive names
  • Threatening to garnish your wages when they have not even filed a court action against you
  • Refusing to validate the debt on request
  • Using an autodialer to harass you
  • Ignoring you when you dispute a debt

Alleged Violations against St. John Cobb, Inc.

According to PACER, on or around February 9, 2011, St. John Cobb, Inc. sent a collection letter to a Georgia consumer. It stated, in part, that if she wanted to dispute the debt, she had to contact the office in writing within 30 days after receiving the notice, or else the debt would be assumed to be valid.

Feeling harassed by St. John Cobb, Inc., the consumer hired an attorney and sued the agency for allegedly violating her rights by:

  • Sending her a written communication which failed to comply with the strict notice of requirements of that statute.
  • Using unfair and unconscionable means to collect a debt
  • Using false, deceptive, and misleading means to collect a debt

The matter was later dismissed.
