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.

      I got a letter I believe in early January from Collection Center Industries, Inc. I was shocked since I had no advanced warning of a debt collection letter headed my way. I dealt with them on the phone many times and they refused to tell me how long my so called debt would last. I asked what it meant and lady at Collection Center Industries, Inc got real nasty and asked if this meant I refused to pay. I sent them copies of cancelled checks and bills yet they refused to tell me the status of all I sent them. I’m still not convinced this letter and debt is legit but I don’t want it wrecking my credit for the amount they’re claiming is owed to the party that allegedly hired them to collect. Collection Center Industries, Inc is of questionable legitimacy in my opinion also which is why this raises the red flag even higher after reading the complaints regarding this agency.

      I was taken to the hospital. My insurance plan should have covered it 100% for ambulance. I must have received a call every week from Collection Center Industries telling me to pay the bill and that they would send to the credit bureau. I explained to Collection Center Industries that my insurance company had been called and that they were working on getting this taken care of. Collection Center Industries told me because my insurance company was so difficult and took so long getting this processed that it would stay on my credit and they wouldn’t remove it even though it wasn’t my fault.
