Debt collectors are well-known for using aggressive and manipulative strategies calculated to make you pay a debt immediately and in full. When you don’t comply, they can unleash a campaign of harassment capable of driving most people into bankruptcy.

These practices violate federal law, so if you find yourself dealing with such a collection agency, read on.

Your Rights Under the FDCPA

The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, or FDCPA, prohibits third-party debt collectors from using deceptive and unethical collection tactics to make debtors pay. Consumer complaints can lead to an agency being fined, so if you are subjected to strategies like those below, hire a consumer attorney.

  • Calling you at work after you tell them that you can’t take personal calls there
  • Threatening to report the debt to the credit bureaus until it is paid
  • Demanding amounts that are not supported by law or the original creditor agreement
  • Threatening legal action they cannot take or have no intention of taking
  • Using profane or obscene language
  • Talking to your friends and family about your debt

Alleged Violations against University Accounting Service

According to PACER, on or about October 10, 2014, University Accounting Service sent a collection letter to a California woman regarding a student loan debt. It advised her that her tax refund would be garnished unless she paid within 30 days.

When her attorney sent a letter to the company explaining that the loans were non-federal “institutional loans,”, University Accounting Service allegedly recalled the account from the Franchise Tax Board, but when she contacted the FTB on September 16, 2015 to confirm this, she learned that there was still an active offset request on her account.

Feeling harassed by University Accounting Service, she 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
  • Making threats it could not legally follow up on
  • Misrepresenting the character, amount, or legal status of the debt

The matter was later dismissed.
