Harassed by Tiburon Financial?*

Stop the
Harassment

You have legal rights. We can help.

 


If you feel that collection agencies have violated your rights with harassment, you may be able to file a claim under the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) and collect compensation. The FDCPA was founded in 1977.

Today, the FDCPA gives protection to consumers against mistreatment from collection companies. There are strict guidelines as to what collection companies can and cannot do in regard to consumers. Collection agencies are not allowed to be profane or threatening, contact other parties about your debt, or contact you outside of certain times. They are required to practice honesty and privacy, follow the law, and send documentation by mail of the debt.

Debt collection agencies are also not allowed to contact any third parties about your debt, or send you mail that clearly states it is from a collection agency. This is because the FDCPA protects your right to privacy regarding debt.

Based in Omaha, Nebraska, Tiburon Financial was established in 2001. It has about $10 million a year in revenue. They specialize in collections.

Tiburon specializes in collections and billing for businesses. They primarily handle the collections from companies who sells health products, such as Acai berry and other drinks. They are also known to handle auto loan collections, as well.

Tiburon Financial has a host of allegations against them. Customers have alleged that Tiburon Financial have harassed and repeatedly called customers who returned the products for which they were being billed. Customers have also cited verbally abusive representatives who insulted customers on the phone by calling them “stupid for not reading the fine print.” Also, they have been accused of being deliberately evasive in terms of information and not giving important information regarding the debt owed.*

Finding a FDCPA attorney can be done through our easy free evaluation. An FDCPA attorney can help you determine if you are eligible for a lawsuit, and discuss whether or not you have the chance to sue for additional damages.
