Sample Case Filed in Federal Court against Collection Consultants of California
In 2015, a judge in U.S. District Court, Central District of California, denied Collection Consultants of California’s motion to dismiss Flores v. Collection Consultants of California for alleged violations of the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act and California’s Rosenthal Fair Debt Collection Practices Act. According to the judge’s decision, the customer alleged that Collection Consultants of California attempted to collect different amounts of money after he had contested the validity of their debts, and delivered him a wide range of letters. The customer said that the last letter sought to accumulate more than $1,200, including more than $300 from unidentified “other creditors,” and alleged that this violated provisions of the FDCPA forbidding false representation of a debt, using unfair and unconscionable means to collect a debt, and collecting a fee not authorized by the agreement creating the debt. Collection Consultants of California argued that the case ought to be dismissed because the statute of limitations had passed, that the previous letter was not a debt collection letter, but instead an offer to repay the debt, and that the correspondence was not misleading. The court rejected CCOC’s arguments, and refused the debt collection agency’s motion to dismiss, thus allowing the case to move forward.

Understanding Your Debt Collection Rights
The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) was enacted to help protect the customer. The FDCPA is quite detailed in relation to what is allowed when trying to collect debts by telephone. The debt collector can’t repeatedly call you to frighten you, can’t call before 8:00 a.m. or after 9:00 p.m., and must identify himself or herself when phoning. Moreover, if you ask the caller to not call you at work, they aren’t permitted to do so. If these rules aren’t adhered to, the debt collector is in violation of the FDCPA.
In case you’ve been the victim of an unscrupulous debt collector, then you can pursue recourse for damages per the FDCPA. You can sue the debt collector and collect up to $1,000, plus attorney fees and court costs.
