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.

      Penn Billing Services Corp’s representatives lie to the consumers they target. Penn Billing Services Corp has been calling me telling me I owe a balance on a Vonage account I closed. Penn Billing Services Corp told me on two occasions that they mailed me the detail of the balance due. In fact I never got anything from Penn Billing Services Corp. On the third call, it was explained to me that Penn Billing Services Corp didn’t have to provide me billing details because Vonage was a paperless company! I cannot obtain any explanation or detail for the charges yet Penn Billing Services Corp expects me to blindly pay them almost $300. After calling Vonage, I discovered they did not close the account as I requested and continued to bill me for another five months. At the end of the day, Vonage owed me money and I did not even owe Penn Billing Services Corp a dime.

      Penn Billing Services has called me many times, usually at dinnertime or other inopportune moments. This was several months ago. I called Penn Billing Services back several times, but their answer was that they didn’t have my number in their computer, so, obviously, couldn’t remove it. They asked for someone who I have never heard of.
