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.

      My business repeatedly had voice mail messages from Progressive Financial Services for an ex-employee who has not been here for over a year. I called to have our telephone number removed from Progressive Financial Services’s system. They should not have been telling me about a third partys alleged debts. Be that as it may, Progressive Financial Services could not find a record of either our main number or the ex-employee’s name. I was transferred to a gentleman at Progressive Financial Services who also could not locate either the phone number or name and then proceeded to tell me it had been removed from their system. He lied. Yet another voice mail message was left the very same evening.

      There is one girl from Progressive Financial Services who keeps calling me at work named Suzette. I have asked many times for Progressive Financial Services to not call me at work. I do provide two cell phone numbers that Progressive Financial Services are allowed to call. Even though I have told them many times that I cannot have phone calls at work, and my Boss does not appreciate me having those phone calls at work, Progressive Financial Services still keeps calling. My boss says that if I keep getting phone calls at work, I can and will be fired. Now, if I get fired, then I can’t pay my bill to Progressive Financial Services. I have asked countless times for Progressive Financial Services to stop calling, and yet they keep doing it.

      Progressive Finance calls my number at least 15 times a day with a recorded message. I have answered for an actual person, told them I was unable to pay at the moment, and asked them to call back in two weeks. I was told I didn’t have two weeks and they had to have payment right then. She was very rude so I hung up. The calls have continued repeatedly to the point of harassment over literally $200 in interest.

      Progressive financial has harassed me since 2011 for a student loan. I defaulted on the loan due to the payment of 2,000 (monthly). I have attempted to negotiate a payment since 2011 but they refused to take. My wages are being garnished and Tax taken as a result of progressive financial. I recently offered to make a payment arrangement but they want more money along with the garnishment.
