You have legal rights. We can help.


Are you being harassed on a daily basis by a collection agency that refuses to accept your inability to pay? Do they embarrass you to your friends and family? No matter what they tell you, such treatment is illegal and the law gives you the right to make it stop.

Your Rights Under the FDCPA

The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, or FDCPA, is a consumer protection law that governs collection agency conduct and prohibits third-party debt collectors from using unethical collection tactics like those below.

  • Using profane and obscene language
  • Reporting inaccurate information to the credit bureaus
  • Pretending to be attorneys, police officers, or federal agents
  • Threatening legal action they cannot take or have no intention of taking
  • Claiming that you owe an amount that’s not supported by law or the original creditor agreement
  • Contacting you directly even after you’ve hired an attorney to represent you in the matter

Alleged Violations against United Consumers, Inc.

According to PACER, in or around March 2015, United Consumers, Inc. started calling a Maryland woman regarding a debt owed by someone else. When she explained that the debtor could not be reached at her phone number, United Consumers, Inc.confirmed that it would remove her number from its records, but more calls allegedly followed.

Feeling harassed by United Consumers, Inc., she hired a consumer attorney and sued the company for allegedly violating the FDCPA in the following ways:

  • Harassing her by phone
  • Using oppressive and abusive means to collect a debt
  • Using unfair and unconscionable means to collect a debt

The matter was later settled.
