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.

    North Shore Agency keeps calling trying collect on a company check. I never used and trying to threaten me they are going to serve papers on debt I don’t even owe. North Shore Agency has to be stopped.

    North Shore Agency said they were a collection agency, collecting on a past due debt to Pennsylvania Game and Fish magazine which I allegedly ordered. I told North Shore Agency that I never ordered this magazine. North Shore Agency continues to call.

    I have not subscribed to SKI magazine, although North Shore Agency says I owe on this. I never received the publication either. I also contacted SKI magazine after a call from North Shore Agency and they said there was no record of any order ever placed. I tried to resolve issue by calling North Shore Agency back. The only option allowed was to pay and if not prepared to do so, the call was terminated.

    North Shore Agency LLC collects on magazine subscriptions. Seriously? North Shore Agency LLC is just a dunk debt buyer.
