Absolutely. Here is a Sample Case Filed in Federal Court against Bay Area Credit Service
In 2015, a judge in U.S. District Court, Northern District of California, denied in part and granted in part a customer’s motion to amend her class action complaint in Alvarado v. HOVG d/b/a Bay Area Credit Service for alleged violations of the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act. According to the judge’s decision, the customer wanted to bring another alleged FDCPA violation to her complaint because, when Bay Area Credit Service was deposed, it was disclosed that a debt collector mentioned that the customer said she was going to speak to her attorney. Alvarado wanted to bring the allegation that Bay Area Credit Service violated the provision of the FDCPA that prohibits calling a consumer after being advised that they’re represented by counsel.
Bay Area Credit Service claimed that the motion should be denied since Alvarado understood what she told the debt collector before she ever filed the complaint, that the change was brought in bad faith, that the one-year statute of limitations had expired, and that the new claim could alter the character of the litigation. The judge disagreed, noting that individuals do not remember every statement made during telephone conversations, and that national rules state that an amendment to a pleading relates back to the date of the original pleading. The judge granted the customer’s motion to amend the complaint, but denied a motion to add AT&T Mobility as a suspect in the case.

Understanding Your Debt Collection Rights
If you’re being contacted by a debt collector, you should be aware that there are particular rules and requirements that debt collectors must follow. The principles are laid out in a law passed by Congress known as the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, or the FDCPA. The FDCPA claims that within five days after the debt collector contacts you for the very first time, they have to send you a written note with specific details. The information must contain specifics about the debt and also inform you how you can access more information regarding the debt. If the debt collector doesn’t provide this written notice within the required time period, then they might be in violation of the FDCPA. For violations of the FDCPA, consumers may recover up to $1,000 in statutory damages, plus attorney fees and court costs.

What Our Clients are Saying
I didn’t understand that debt collection agencies may wind up paying your legal bill. What a surprise, to get free legal assistance. I am very thankful for all the hard work they did to finally give me my life back.”
“Lemberg Law contacted me within a couple of hours of me submitting my info on their site. That same day Daniel emailed me instructions on what to do the next time the collection agency called. Within a week, the calls had stopped. Today marks week 2 and we’ve not had a call in three days. I can’t say thank you enough.”
“Seriously! Thank you a thousand times over! The debt collector kept calling me but would not give me any information regarding the debt that I owed except the sum. They threatened me over and over again and would not stop calling. I hunted on Google for ways to make the calls stop and discovered Lemberg Law. They took my case and found that the debt was too old to accumulate. This firm had ‘bought’ my accounts and expected for me to pay! Guess what? They ended up paying me for each of the harassment they put me through! I was SHOCKED when I received my check. Lemberg Law, you ROCK!”
