Fact: Pursuant to the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, it is unlawful for a collection agency to utilize unfair or unconscionable means to collect an alleged debt.

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.

      JJ Marshall and Associates Inc is collecting on an old medical bill. JJ Marshall and Associates Inc is reporting this medical bill is on my credit report. I told JJ Marshall and Associates Inc that this bill is for my ex. We have been divorced for over 8 years.

      These terrible people had my daughter in laws car repossed for a 1200.00 medical bill from 8 years ago. It cost 3200.00 to get the car out of the pound. On top of everything the scumbag gave my daughter in law a horrible time giving her car back and they destroyed ot in the meam time. We are going to pursue with a lawyer. I feel this company stole their car and had no rights to it for an 8 year old medical bill. The could have made arrangements or garnished her wages. You just dont go steal someones car. We are going to the media with this
