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.

The harassing company pays our fees.
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.
As of March 2017, the Better Business Bureau reported 68 closed Americollect complaints over the previous few decades, including 34 closed Americollect complaints over the past 12 months. The BBB provides Americollect an A- rating. Additionally, Justia lists five Americollect complaints filed in federal court in the past year alleging violations of the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, and two alleging violations of the Fair Credit Reporting Act. Moreover, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) lists 85 closed Americollect complaints for 2016.

It is illegal for a debt collector to threaten 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.

If you’re unsure as to whether a particular debt which a collector is attempting to accumulate is really yours, you have the right under the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) to challenge its validity. It isn’t unheard of for debt collectors to send bogus invoices to unsuspecting customers — or to just make a mistake. Don’t necessarily assume that a debt is yours, as some dishonest debt collectors are known to collect customers’ personal and financial information to create a bogus invoice, to go after people for debts they aren’t authorized to collect, or to reopen paid-in-full debts for their own profit. If you decide to challenge the validity of a debt, it’s necessary to submit to the debt collector–within the period specified on the correspondence (usually 30 days)–a debt validation request to find out whether all or part of the debt is legitimate. The debt collector must then give you confirmation that the debt is legally enforceable and that they’re authorized to pursue sets.

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.”
