HOW NOT TO COLLECT A DEBT

FDCPA VIOLATION IN THE NEWS

A Texas woman has filed a lawsuit against Capital Management Services, a national collection agency.  Capital Management Services is alleged to have contacted the Plaintiff after she sent them a cease and desist letter.  This singe violation, if proved, is enough to trigger the Plaintiff’s rights under the FDCPA (Fair Debt Collection Practices Act).  The FDCPA is the Federal law governing debt collectors. If she wins her lawsuit, this Plaintiff should be awarded at least $1,000.00 plus her attorney’s fees and court costs. http://www.setexasrecord.com/news/243625-collection-agency-sued-for-contacting-debtor-after-cease-and-desist-letter

Debt collectors violate the law at their own risk.  In New Hampshire both the FDCPA and New Hampshire Revised Statute 358: C protect you from unfair debt collection actions.  A properly drafted cease and desist letter can protect you from annoying or threatening telephone calls.  If the contacts continue after a cease and desist letter is sent, we can make the collection agency pay you for ignoring State or Federal law.
