American Collection Defense Expert Opinion Alerts of Senior Debt Collector Harassment: Are your parent’s rights being violated?
Date:7/30/2013

Mobile, Alabama (PRWEB) July 30, 2013

Consumers across America are being harassed by third party debt collectors in violation of Federal Law.

On July 9, in Money Watch, the Federal Trade Commission announced the Largest Civil Penalty Ever Obtained by the FTC Against a Third-party Debt Collector.

The world's largest debt collection operation, Expert Global Solutions and its subsidiaries, have finally been forced to agree to stop harassing consumers with allegedly illegal debt collection calls and to pay a $3.2 million civil penalty - the largest ever obtained by the Federal Trade Commission against a third-party debt collector.

In its complaint, the FTC charged that the companies violated the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act and the FTC Act by using tactics such as:

  •     Calling consumers multiple times per day
  •     Calling even after being asked to stop
  •     Calling early in the morning or late at night
  •     Calling consumers' workplaces despite knowing that the employers prohibited such calls
  •     And leaving phone messages that disclosed the debtor's name, and the existence of the debt, to third parties such as relatives or neighbors.

According to the FTC's complaint, the companies also continued collection efforts without verifying the debt, even after consumers said they did not owe it.

No one should tolerate calls at work by collectors ever again.
