If you’ve ever been chased by a collection agency, you know what a stressful ordeal it can be. You dread the arrival of each day’s mail and become anxious when the phone rings. If a debt collector has pursued you to the point that you feel this way, contacting a consumer lawyer can put you back in control.

Your Rights Under the FDCPA

The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) is a federal statute that regulates the professional conduct of third-party debt collectors. Any company that applies these types of pressure to make a consumer pay can be closed down.

  • Demanding payments that exceed the amount of the original debt
  • Calling you outside of the hours of 8:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. in your time zone
  • Failing or refusing to identify themselves as debt collectors trying to collect a deb
  • Discussing your debt with anyone except you, your spouse, or your attorney
  • Saying they have filed a lawsuit against you when they haven’t
  • Leaving voice messages that do not identify the collector and the reason for their call

Alleged Violations against Velocity Investments, LLC

According to PACER, on or around mid-2007, Velocity Investments, LLC sued an Ohio consumer to collect a debt. The case was settled, with the consumer agreeing to pay $67.00 to Defendant Velocity Investments, within thirty days to satisfy the matter in full.

Despite the consumer making the required payment on November 4, 2007, Velocity Investments, LLC filed a wage garnishment case against her on August 14, 2009, claiming that she owed $2,135.28, and allegedly served the notice at an incorrect address.

When the consumer learned about the matter from her employer, she reminded the agency that the debt had already been settled. On September 18, 2009, the Canton Municipal Court agreed that the judgment had been satisfied in November 2007 and dismissed the action.

Feeling harassed by Velocity Investments, LLC, the consumer hired an attorney and sued the company for allegedly violating the FDCPA by:

  • Using false, deceptive, and misleading means to collect a debt
  • Using harassing and abusive means to collect a debt
  • Misrepresenting the character, amount, or legal status of the debt
  • Threatening to communicate false credit information
  • Using unfair and unconscionable means to collect a debt
  • Trying to collect an amount not permitted by law

The matter was later resolved.
