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.

      Eastpoint Recovery Group called my mom trying to collect on a debt that I owe. Then Eastpoint Recovery Group called my brother and tried to collect my debt from him.

      Eastpoint Recovery Group called us and when they first started talking with us they told us that they were a law firm. Then Eastpoint Recovery Group told us that there was a lawsuit. Eastpoint Recovery Group misrepresented themselves by telling me that they were attorneys when they are not.

      These people keep calling my phone and my wife’s brother. Also calling my grandmother and will not leave us alone. Don’t know what to do to make them stop but I’m ready for this to stop

      I received a call from Eastpoint Recovery Group stating they had a pending civil action against me. I have never received a bill from Eastpoint Recovery Group. As I returned the call after making payment arrangements, Eastpoint Recovery Group hung up on me. I call back and Eastpoint Recovery Group states that obviously I’m not taking this matter seriously and is nasty with me. Eastpoint Recovery Group said they have forwarded my claim. I don’t appreciate being harassed nor hung up on by Eastpoint Recovery Group.

      Eastpoint Recovery Group keeps calling and harassing me about a debt that was discharged in my bankruptcy. I gave Eastpoint Recovery Group the name of the court where the bankruptcy was filed as well as the case number. So Eastpoint Recovery Group called a relative, told this relative about my debt, and tried to collect from them saying I refused to pay.

      Eastpoint Recovery Group called and said I had to pay or I’d be in court. Eastpoint Recovery Group also said they would add on other fees if I didn’t pay. I asked Eastpoint Recovery Group for validation. Eastpoint Recovery Group said they wouldn’t do that unless I paid?
