Fast Fact: As many as 1 in 5 Americans have errors or mistakes that are serious enough to affect their credit scores to point of being denied new credit or the refinancing of existing credit.

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.

      Legal Prevention Services has been calling me and parents over a debt they claim from Wells Fargo. I have asked that they stop calling but they continue. They claim they will be going after my wages. I do not know what it is for now. I do not owe Wells Fargo $13,000 they claim. They have called from various phone numbers, and told me to call back. When I do, and enter the extension, I keep getting a different person.

      Please STOP them from calling.

      Received a call from them on Black Friday. They said they would contact my employer. I don’t even know what they want. Please stop them from calling.

      I paid two payday loans from 2011. I paid these in full through another debt agency. LPS called me yesterday telling me this has NOT been paid and I owe such and such amount. I asked them to mail me the contract they had through Vandelier Group. They said they could not. I will NOT pay another dime towards this debt. They can do what they need to do. They are not BBB credited and they have 17 compliants. A couple of those complaints are identical to my situation.

      If you get a call from 8664132918, 8777336542, 8776588917, 8772648475, or 8443408477, that’s Legal Prevention Services LLC. Legal Prevention Services LLC says all kinds of crazy stuff, like that my social security number is being reported. I just want to sue Legal Prevention Services LLC because I have it on tape. Idiots.
