Fact: Pursuant to the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, a collection agency must tell you how much you owe, the name of the creditor to whom the debt is owed, and that you have the right to dispute the debt within thirty days.

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 received a 20.00 bill from Evergreen Professional Recoveries for a co-pay that apparently I did not pay. When I logged in online they showed that bill and another bill for a Doctor Sama Salama for 1954.00. I’ve never heard of this bill so I did a little research online and couldn’t find any information. I called Evergreen Professional Recoveries and talked with a man named Craig? I told him of my situation he then proceeded to ask me if Scott Alexander was my husband. I told him no that is my father he told me that I only had one account there in the office I proceeded to ask why this other account would appear online when I tried to pay my 20.00 bill. He started laughing at me when I asked to speak with the manager he at first refused me then said “good grief” laughed more and transfered me. I spoke with the Collection director I do not have his name let him know his previous associate did not give me the mini miranda either. I told him of my situation he pretended to not know what I am talking about I told him per FDCPA they are not allowed to be deceptive. He told me he has been in this industry for 16 years and not to quote laws to him. He proceeded to over talk me and being aggressive. I told him it is a violation to talk with me in this matter he told me to have an attorney contact him since I am stating laws that don’t make sense. He proceeded to tell me to log back into their website and I would only see my 20.00 bill. I am thinking they combined my fathers bill with my own without any kind of research. Per the FDCPA all calls to consumers whether incomeing or outgoing require the disclosure of the mini miranda and abusive language is a violation.
