Unexpected hardships can come at any time, but this is of little concern to collection agencies that are kicking you while you are down! Predatory debt collectors have caused people to file unnecessarily for bankruptcy, and created situations resulting in job loss, mental instability, and emotional harm. Such conduct is illegal, so if it happens to you, fight back.

Your Rights Under the FDCPA

The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act was specifically created to protect the rights of U.S. consumers. It prohibits predatory and harassing practices by third-party debt collectors. If you are subjected to collection practices like those below, hire a consumer lawyer right away.

  • Using profane and obscene language
  • Discussing your debt with your friends, neighbors, and co-workers
  • Maliciously reporting false information to the credit bureaus
  • Failing to identify themselves as debt collectors seeking to collect a debt
  • Contacting you even after you dispute a debt
  • Refusal to provide you with information about the debt upon request

Alleged Violations against The Stark Collection Agency

According to PACER, on or about July 25, 2013, The Stark Collection Agency mailed a debt collection letter to a Wisconsin woman seeking payment for a cell phone debt.

The letter offered to settle for “30% less than the amount listed” but there were two amounts- the principal and the total balance, making it unclear which one was reduced.

Feeling harassed by The Stark Collection Agency, she hired a consumer lawyer and sued the company for allegedly violating the FDCPA by using false, deceptive, and misleading means to collect a debt. The matter was later dismissed.
