What is Americollect?

Located in Manitowoc, Wisconsin,  Americollect  has approximately 250 employees, and collects debts for upwards of 70 hospitals and 7,000 doctors in 33 states. Americollect utilizes auto-dialers — also called robocalls — to contact customers. Their tagline is, “Ridiculously pleasant Collections,” though they do not explain how they measure this.

The organization prioritizes customers with high balances and the ones which are statistically most likely to cover the debt. When being “ridiculously fine” does not bring in the bucks, the debt collection agency will sue a customer, and leverage the lawsuit to continue to attempt to negotiate payment before the court date.

Is Americollect a scam?

They’re legit. Americollect is a legitimate debt collection agency with a long history of harassing consumers over debts. They use skip tracing techniques, letter campaigns, automated messaging, and auto-dialers (also referred to as robocalls) so as to collect debt. Like most debt collection agencies, they operate on a contingency basis, so that they only get paid if they collect from customers.

If you’ve suffered from American Collection Agency debt harassment, you do have options. Under the law you can recover up to $1,000 for violations of the FDCPA, and $500 to $1,500 for each cell phone robocall.

Can Americollect Sue Me or Garnish My Wages?

It is illegal for a debt collector to make empty threats to sue you or garnish your wages. It is also unlikely Americollect would sue you for a debt you may not owe or they cannot validate. However, debt collection agencies are known to have summoned debtors to court and garnish wages after a default judgement. Contacting an attorney BEFORE this could possibly happen would be a smart move. We’ve helped thousands of consumers fight back against unscrupulous debt collection harassers.

Americollect Calling You?

Federal laws protect you. The Fair Debt Collections Practices Act (FDCPA) regulates the behavior of collection agencies by prohibiting actions such as the use of abusive or threatening language; harassment; or the use of false or misleading information to collect a debt. The FCRA regulates how collection agencies and creditors report delinquent debts to credit reporting agencies. Additional consumer protection laws include the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA) and the Consumer Financial Protection Act (CFPA).

But here’s the rub: If you want to enforce your rights, or recover money for violations — you need to sue. These laws provide individuals like you with a means to seek monetary damages in court. For example, the FDCPA allows consumers who have been violated to recover damages of up to $1,000, plus attorney fees and court costs.

“I received outstanding professionalism from the own staff. I had a horrible experience when trying to solve a debt. 1 debt collector associate said she would speak to the prosecutor’s office and another representative told me that when I called the office back he would call the police and have me arrested. I had been insulted, mocked, and threatened, and feared that the police would appear at my door any given moment.”

    Receiving calls from Americollect (904)-406-8038 they are disclosing info about me over the phone. Anyone could have answered the call and said they were me and they gave the info of the amount of bills I supposedly owe.

    They claimed I owed $329.00 for something in January of 2015. I paid the extortion amount which was impossible to be correct. They were going to hurt my credit if I would not pay the full amount. They said they wanted to help me. I had paid the hospital well over $3,000.00 My deductible was $200.00 which would have been the absolute maximum it could have been. The procedure took the hospital 16 minutes. This was three years after the fact? I am infuriated that this goes on in in our country. This was extortion. I have excellent credit and they knew I did not want to ruin it .

    Trying to clear my debt with AmeriCollect. I called on October 26th the lady that I spoke with said she could give me a 25% discount for full payment. I agreed, she said she would send me some paperwork and I asked for a detail of all of the invoices that they said that had. I updated my address with her and waited. Received nothing, called again on November 6th, gentleman this time said he didn’t understand why I hadn’t received anything my address had been updated he also informed me that they were not authorized to accept a settlement. I again asked him if he could send me a detail of all of the invoices, asked if they could me emailed, because I wanted to get his cleared as soon as possible. He said he would send me an email verification and then after I did that he would be able to email me the details. Received the email verification, did what it asked and I still have nothing. Called November 10th, talked with someone else, very nice not sure why I hadn’t received anything and that she would send it out right away. Still nothing. I have over $15,000 of collections between my husband and I and I am trying to get this cleared. The other collection agency have been for cooperative and have given me what I asked, but I just can’t seem to get anything from Americollect.

    Email contact is perferred.
