Many Americans like you are being contacted by collection agencies who are trying to get payments on defaulted accounts they have acquired or been assigned. Even though you may owe a debt, you still have rights.

You should dispute the debt in writing if you feel as if the dollar amount the collection agency is requesting is inaccurate, if you feel the debt is not owed or if you feel the debt is fraudulent. You can send a letter to the collection agency within thirty days of first being notified of the collection. You should send this letter via certified mail so that you can prove that they received it. In response to your dispute, the collection agency must cease collection activity until they send you some sort of validation of the alleged debt. They can resume their collection efforts again once they produce proof of your debt.

The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (“FDCPA”) regulates what debt collection agencies may and may not do. There are many things collection agencies cannot do or say when contacting you. Collection agencies may not:

  • use abusive or obscene language;
  • call before 8am or after 9pm;
  • call you repeatedly;
  • call you at work, if they know that your employer does not permit personal calls;
  • contact any third party and state that you owe a debt;
  • threaten to have you arrested or imprisoned.

    If any of these things occur, your best option is to consult with a consumer protection attorney.

      Coast Professional has calls my house from 800964088 in the morning, afternoon and the late evenings. Coast Professional claims I owe on student loans. “Mike” from Coast Professional tried to get me into tell him my work information such as how much I bring in every month.

      Katrina’s wages were suddenly garnished without warning on a 30 + year old student loan obligation. We contacted a number of services and no one can find any record of the loan. We found a treatise by the National Consumer Law Center that says Coast Professional routinely violates Federal law by not providing any type of dispute resolution process (May, 2012). So two questions: (1) can they garnish without any type of due process (e.g. see 5th Amendment); and (2) can we stop the garnishment. We can make reasonable payments, but we have 4 kids and we already lost our home in foreclosure. If the wage garnishment by Coast Professional continues, we are going to be homeless! Please help!!

      I got a letter from Coast Professional as well as a hang up phone call. These guys are idiots. In the body of the letter they are identified as “Coast” but in the letterhead of the second page they are “Cost”. This is what Coast Professional are sending out as a company.

      Coast Professional Inc has called my boss several times trying to get my social security number. Coast Professional Inc is asking for verification of employment and my wages.

      They sent a garnishment letter to my employer. The letter claimed they contacted me and they had not. The letter said this was “non-tax debt” and said my employer, as a business and taxpayer should feel good in helping to collect billions owe to the US government. They requested so much money I was left unable to pay any of my bills and was forced to file an emergency Chapter 13 bankruptcy. My mother was dying in NY and they made it impossible for me to be there, She was calling out for me on her deat0bed and I could not be there, I sure hope Coast is proud of that.
