Are You Being Called By Weber & Olcese?*

Stop the
Harassment

You have legal rights. We can help.

 


Unethical debt collectors might use threats and deception to get consumers to pay them, banking on the probability that you are not familiar enough with your rights to challenge them. If this is happening to you, don’t let them get away with such actions. The law is on your side.

Your Rights Under the FDCPA

The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, or FDCPA regulates what debt collectors can say or do during collection attempts. If the collector you’re dealing with uses methods like those below, they are breaking the law.

  • Calling you before 8:00 a.m. and after 9:00 p.m.
  • Discussing the debt with your family (with the possible exception of your spouse), friends, and co-workers
  • Calling you at work after you tell them that you can’t take personal calls there
  • Swearing, raising their voice, and making threats
  • Leaving voice messages that do not identify the collector and the reason for their call
  • Telling you that you have broken the law and can go to jail

Alleged Violations against Weber & Olcese

Daniel Smith vs. Weber & Olcese*

According to PACER, in early 2012 Weber & Olcese was assigned to collect a consumer debt that Michigan resident Daniel Smith owed to HSBC. In either March or April, the company allegedly started calling a number belonging to Mr. Smith’s father and continued to call, even after Daniel moved out in April. On or about July 11, 2012, Mr. Smith sent Weber & Olcese a letter directing it to cease and desist from having further contact with him, but the company allegedly called Mr. Smith’s father again and left a message stating that they were calling regarding a debt that Daniel owed.

Feeling harassed by Weber & Olcese, Mr. Smith hired a consumer attorney and sued the company for allegedly violating the FDCPA in the following ways:

  • Discussing his debt with uninvolved third parties
  • Using harassing, oppressive, or abusive means to collect a debt
  • Using false, deceptive and misleading means to collect a debt
  • Using unfair and unconscionable means to collect a debt

The matter was later settled.
