Debt collection calls can give you heartburn. Debt collection robocalls are exponentially worse. Our client says that Allied International Credit Corp started robocalling his cell phone in 2016. When he answered the calls, he just heard silence. At one point, our client spoke with the debt collection agency and demanded that the calls stop. Nevertheless, Allied International Credit Corp kept calling. In addition, our client says that Allied International Credit Corp failed to properly identify itself as a debt collection agency when calling him.
The lawsuit charges that Allied International Credit Corp violated the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA) by using an automated telephone dialing system to call our client’s cell phone without his consent. The lawsuit also charges that Allied International Credit Corp violated the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) by engaging in harassing behavior; by not disclosing the identity of the debt collection agency during a call; and by using unfair and unconscionable means to collect a debt.
