Are You Being Called By U.S. Collection West, Inc.?* Here’s What You Need to Know

When you’re drowning in debt and collection agencies are calling constantly, it can be so stressful and humiliating that you might consider bankruptcy, especially if the debt collector assigned to your case is harassing you on a routine basis. Before making an appointment with a trustee, however, see an attorney first, as consumer harassment violates federal law.

Your Rights Under the FDCPA

The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) was passed in 1977 to protect consumers from predatory third-party debt collectors. It prohibits actions like the following and penalizes collection agencies that use them to settle a debt.

  • Swearing and calling you names
  • Contacting you after you have sent a cease and desist letter
  • Calling you outside of the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 9:00 p.m. your time
  • Calling you at work when they know that your employer prohibits such calls
  • Threatening to seize your property or garnish your wages
  • Refusing to provide proof that you owe a debt and they are authorized to collect it

According to PACER, on or about September 25, 2015, Arizona resident Stephanie Roth obtained her credit files and noticed that U.S. Collection West, Inc. reported a debt that had been discharged in an earlier bankruptcy. She submitted a dispute letter to the agency. On or about February 17, 2016, U.S. Collection West, Inc. sent a letter to Mrs. Roth in response to the aforementioned letter. In this response, it attempted to collect the alleged debt. The letter stated that the principal due was $171.37, but that Mrs. Roth owed $41.48 for interest for a total of $212.85.

Feeling harassed by U.S. Collection West, Inc., Mrs. Roth hired a consumer attorney and sued the company for allegedly violating the FDCPA by misrepresenting the character, amount, or legal status of the debt.

The matter was later settled.
