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 was set up on a payment plan a year ago with Collections And Recoveries Of Pleasantville and have made all my payments on time every month. I called Collections And Recoveries Of Pleasantville to get my balance that is still owed and they informed me that a judgement was entered for almost double the amount that is owed. I received no notice or court documents about this.

      I’m dealing with this company now. I owe $100 to a hospital which I was informed of months after the visit. I didn’t know I had a CO pay for hospital visits. I do not object to this debt and have every intention on paying it. What is really driving me crazy is that this company didn’t start calling me until AFTER businesses were closed down due to the coronavirus and continues to do so and has ruined my credit over $100 during this pandemic, my credit that my husband and I have been working so hard to fix both our reports for the past year. Like millions of people across the U.S., my last day of work was March 26 2020, due to Covid19. Unfortunately, unlike millions of people I still as of today July 6, 2020 have not received anything from unemployment and for the life of me cannot figure out why. I’m just appalled that at a time like this, where millions are out of work, a company would call, harass and threaten someone. That’s down right wrong!
