A new consumer survey carried out by the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau indicates that many people with a debt in collections are abused, harassed, and deceived by debt collectors. The survey is an important reminder that consumer harassment is illegal and that steps can be taken to make it stop.

Your Rights Under the FDCPA

The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) regulates the activities of third-party debt collectors via the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act or FDCPA. It prohibits actions like those below when used to collect a debt.

  • Using profane and abusive language
  • Talking to uninvolved parties such as your friends, family, and co-workers about the debt
  • Using an autodialer to leave a stream of pre-recorded messages
  • Calling you at work after you’ve told them that you aren’t allowed to talk to them there
  • Threatening legal actions that they have no intention of taking
  • Pretending to be police officers, government officials, or any other law enforcement figure

Maranda Woodward vs. Tri-State Adjustments, Inc.

According to PACER, on or about December 5, 2011, Tri-State Adjustments, Inc. sent a collection letter to a Wisconsin woman seeking payment for a medical debt. Another letter followed or about February 27, 2012, this one seeking a higher amount.

He concluded that the company was attempting to collect interest on the alleged debts although it had no legal basis for doing so.

Feeling harassed by Tri-State Adjustments, Inc., he hired a consumer attorney and sued the company for allegedly violating the FDCPA in the following ways:

  • Using false, deceptive, and misleading means to collect a debt
  • Misrepresenting the character, amount or legal status of the debt
  • Using unfair and unconscionable means to collect a debt

The matter was later dismissed.
