US Collections West Inc is a company that works with various businesses to provide collection services and recover debt. 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.

      According to this company I was sued on 7/22/2011 and I was servers “in person” on 10/27/2011 which I was not. This company got a default against me on 2/3/2012 after previously garnishing wages from an employer which satisfied the original debt. I have contacted the FTC who did nothing in the case, I also contacted the Arizona Department of Financial Institutions who previously gave them orders to stop this very same type of activity, which is why I contacted them. Now this department refuses to do anything against this company despite them violating the very rules they were sanctioned under. They have called me and threatened me, and so forth. I am not intimidated by them, however I am not willing to pay them one dime more since I have already satisfied the original debt.

      US Collections West Inc is harassing. US Collections West Inc is demanding payments I cannot afford and will not work out a more affordable plan.
