Are You Being Called By Zealandia Capital, Inc.?*

Stop the
Harassment

You have legal rights. We can help.

 


When you’re struggling to make ends meet, there’s not much available to pay down your credit card bills, medical debt, and student loans. Once you miss a consecutive number of payments, your credits may send debt collectors to collect the remaining balance.

These collectors will often do anything to get you to pay, even abuse your rights.

Your Rights Under the FDCPA

The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, or FDCPA, regulates what third-party debt collectors may say and do while trying to collect a consumer debt. Any tactics that constitute deception or abuse are illegal and can result in fines and license revocation. Examples of prohibited activities include:

  • Adding unauthorized service fees to the debt
  • Intentionally reporting incorrect information to the credit bureaus
  • Claiming that you can lose your job for not paying a debt
  • Threatening legal actions it has no intention of taking
  • Harassing you by phone
  • Calling you outside the hours of 8:00 a.m to 9:00 p.m. in your time zone

Alleged Violations against Zealandia Capital, Inc.

According to PACER, on or around April 27, 2015, Zealandia Capital, Inc. called an Illinois consumer to collect a debt. When she advised that she had filed for Chapter 13 Bankruptcy filing on February 1, 2013, and included the debt, the caller allegedly stated that her bankruptcy cased had been dismissed.

The consumer said that she was represented by an attorney, but the agency allegedly continued to call her directly.

Feeling harassed by Zealandia Capital, Inc., she hired a consumer lawyer and sued the agency for:

  • Contacting her directly when she was represented by an attorney
  • Misrepresenting the legal status of the debt

The matter was later resolved.
