Fact: Pursuant to the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, it is unlawful for a collection agency to contact you at a time or place known to be inconvenient to you.

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 served with a small claims notice to pay $1,631.88 for a debt to the City of Eugene Fire & EMS today, April 30. We were making payments on the $1,600 bill presented on or about April 2012 and we paid them $25 every month until after the last payment made on May 28, 2014. We stopped payments due to lack of income. The balance due on 5/28/14 was $1,045. Seems unusually high interest.

      CSO Financial Inc is very hostile, condescending, aggressive. In the course of simply asking questions about the amount alleged to be owed, CSO Financial Inc said, “Just pay it” and would offer nothing further .

      I received a notice of collections from CSO financial for a pizza from Dominoes. I called to explain that this was impossible due to the fact that I have not had a checking account or credit card for over 6 years. They were very rude, and demanded information that I was not comfortable giving over the phone

      My experience with CSO is ongoing. Initially in Feb 2016 I hired a lawyer from Randy Rubin Law Firm in Roseburg, OR. I paid a $2000.00 retainer fee up front. A month later, after the court hearing, I ended his legal services and left the Roseburg area. For 1 1/2 yrs afterwards I received monthly invoices saying I hadn’t paid them, ea month with added late fees. I contacted them several times asking what about the retainer fee I paid. I sent copies of the receipts of payment. My answer was another invoice, just like the others with more late fees. I ignored them from then on. In early 2019 I found a collections on my credit report for 3140.00 from CSO . Rubin had turned this over to this company. I contacted Scott at CSO and explained I had paid this already. I sent him the same receipts showing my payment. I received another letter from CSO with the same threats of more legal actions, and another fabricated invoice with new billing and more late charges. The new billings all dated long after I ended Rubins services in 2016. This is 3 yrs after. Also, there is a statement about the 2000.00 retainer being used up early on. A fake response to squash my many requests of where the retainer went. Both Rubin and CSO are in bed together with fraud and criminal actions. I have just sent off a complaint to the Feds including copies of my proof. I save everything, these crooks don’t know I have more documents I ‘ve saved that further incriminates the both of them. I don’t owe this money. I plan to file other charges with the DA for this harassment. There is much more to this nightmare than I can include here. They will pay for what they’ve done. I have nothing better to do than expose them to the world.
