You have legal rights. We can help.


If debt collectors have you so stressed out that you can’t sleep at night and you’re afraid to answer the phone, something is wrong. No matter how much you owe, harassing and intimidating you is illegal. Read on to learn more about your rights as an indebted consumer.

Your Rights Under the FDCPA

The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, or FDCPA, was passed in 1977 to protect indebted consumers. Four decades later, it remains illegal for a third party debt collector to use tactics like the following to compel you to pay a debt.

  • Calling you constantly every day
  • Pretending to be police officers, government officials, or any other law enforcement figure
  • Demanding amounts not supported by law or the original creditor agreement
  • Disguising the fact that they are debt collectors trying to collect a debt
  • Using profane and obscene language
  • Reporting false information to the credit bureaus

Alleged Violations against Summit Account Resolution

According to information on the PACER website, in or around late 2009, Summit Account Resolution allegedly started calling the father of a California consumer about a debt owed by his son. He complained that collectors threatened to send a private investigator to his home and sue him, saying that the burden of proving that the debt was not his rested with him.

Feeling harassed by Summit Account Resolution, the consumer filed an FDCPA claim against the agency for:

  • Contacting him at inconvenient times and places
  • Using harassing and abusive means to collect a debt
  • Using false, deceptive, and misleading means to collect a debt
  • Using unfair and unconscionable means to collect a debt
  • Threatening to take action that cannot legally be taken
  • Misrepresenting the character, amount, or legal status of the debt

The matter was later dismissed.
