Fast Fact: Pursuant to the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, it is unlawful for a collection agency to contact you via telephone if the collector receives written communication stating that you want the collector to stop calling you.

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.

      Pendrick Capital Partners LLC is trying to collect a debt from me which belongs to someone with the same name as me. I told Pendrick Capital Partners LLC they have the wrong guy. Pendrick Capital Partners LLC is collecting on some medical bill due to people I’ve never heard of. Pendrick Capital Partners LLC continue to harass me.

      I am a 100% service connected veteran whose disability also includes dental. I had to use a civilian emergency room at CaroMont Regional Medical Center, Gastonia NC. The doctor providing care was a member of Emergency Medicine Physicians of Gaston County, LLC. I listed the Department of Veteran Affairs as the entity responsible for the debt. This was in December 2013. The VA representative told me the process was automatic denial of claim and the veteran then had to file an appeal, which I did. The VA did no act upon my claim in a timely manner. I informed the medical center and EMP that the bill was in appeal and that I was pretty sure the VA would pay and that I had not received a denial of payment from the VA. I also told them the case was in appeal and that I was giving them authorization to contact the VA and discuss the issue. The medical center did just that and waited for the appeal process. On the other hand EMP did not wait and had credit collection agencies calling my house and stated that they would not call the VA. EMP billing agent said it was my responsibility to give them the information and that she would just put it on my credit report. They did not call the VA. They sold the debt to Pendrick Capital Partners who had Bay Area Credit Service to start putting the information on my credit and contacting me for payment. I tried to tell them that I had filed a Congressional complaint that had been resolved in my favor and that the VA was going to pay all bills associated with this claim. I gave them verbal permission and sent faxes to both companies asking them to contact the VA who was trying to pay them. I was again told it was my responsibility to get this information and provide it to them. I feel I have been harassed and beleaguered on all fronts. First the slowness of payment by the VA but more importantly the purposeful inactivity of EMP to verify with the VA the status of this debt from the very beginning in January of 2014. I view EMP’s action as an unfair business practice. I still do not know if the company got their money because they sold the debt out. Companies should have someone authorized to check these type of cases. Instead they think threatening the person and destroying their credit is the answer. EMP’s billing agents need training. The VA needs skilled persons to review in a timely manner. I think the VA does not have enough agents to handle these cases and are backed up beyond a reasonable amount of time. I thought people should know that what they consider a legal and binding action is subject to land them in bad credit hell.

      I have argued with several different collection agencies over one single account that I could never verify myself. When they cant collect , they put it on your credit report, charge off it, then sell it to another collection agency. I finally got it removed, and now I get a new letter from these guys. The cycle never ends.
      The FDCPA needs to revisit the laws. There needs to be a limit on how many times a debt can change hands. It’s getting ridiculous. it should be 1 original debtor, and if they cant collect then 1 collection agency , and if they cant collect then charge off , derogatory mark on your credit for 7 years.
      Good people get punished regularly and I’m sick of it.

      I receive a new collections letter about once or twice a year that originates with American Medical Response and was sold to Pendrick. This was for an ambulance ride and the account was settled when it was found by the medical provider that the ambulance had written the wrong zip code on the pickup location. This was almost 6 years ago and pendrick continues to sell this already resolved account to another collection agency. I need this harassment to stop.
