Americollect – American Collection Agency Complaints?
We Stop Unwanted Calls and Debt Collector Harassment.
Americollect, also known as American Collection Agency is a debt collection agency, which receives a lot of consumer complaints to our law firm for debt harassment. Find out who they are, why they might be calling, and how you can stop them.
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.

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. Find out if we can help you too today!

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 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.”
