Is Consumer Collection Management a scam?

They’re legit. It is illegal for a debt collector to make empty threats to sue you or garnish your wages. It is also unlikely CCM 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.

Can you help me file a No Fee Lawsuit against Consumer Collection Management CCM?

Absolutely. Here are some Sample Complaints

The BBB has posted the following Alert on Consumer Collection Management’s profile page:

“PATTERN OF COMPLAINT
The BBB has received numerous complaints on this collection agency. Complainants primarily allege that company representatives made harassing phone calls using rude and vulgar language, provided poor customer service, attempted to collect debts that weren’t owed and improperly billed consumers.”

Consumer complaints posted to their profile page frequently cite problems with information reported to the credit reporting agencies. For example, in April 2017, a complainant indicated that he had discussed repayment of an $81.00 medical bill, promised to send in the payment, and “post-dated a check for the payment.” The complainant asked if CCM would report the item to the credit reporting agencies and was told the item would not be reported. The complainant was “happy that he could pay them… to save the horror of the item being reported to his credit.” However, a subsequent review of his credit report revealed that the item had been reported anyway. His call to CCM to inquire about the miscommunication “was met with a rude and hostile worker” who told him he could speak with a manager who “never came to the phone.” He was informed that he would receive a call back, but he said he had never received any follow-up communication.

In response, Consumer Collection Management indicated that their notes confirmed the complainant had “setup up payment for the balance in full to be processed… and that at that time, the account had not been sent to the… credit” reporting agencies. However, CCM also indicated that “a promise to pay will not keep an account from being reported to the credit” reporting agencies. CCM acknowledged the complainant’s call inquiring about the miscommunication, but insisted that his credit was never discussed. Furthermore, they indicated their policy is to “send an update file to the credit bureaus at the beginning of each month,” and that “once the account has been paid in full for more than 30 days…an update advising the account should be removed from the credit” will result in deletion the following month. Consumer Collection Management also indicated that a manager had placed a call to the complainant, although they did not indicate whether any kind of contact had been established.

Consumer Collection Management CCM Calling You?

The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) and the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) enforce consumer protection laws, including the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) and the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA). These two federal laws help regulate the collections industry. The FDCPA prohibits actions such as the use of false or misleading statements in an effort to collect a debt.

The FCRA regulates how collection agencies report information to credit reporting agencies. Additional consumer protection laws include the Consumer Financial Protection Act (CFPA) and the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA).

These laws also provide individuals with a means to seek monetary damages in court. For example, the FDCPA allows consumers to recover damages of up to $1,000, plus attorney fees and court costs, in cases proving violations of the FDCPA.

The case above illustrates how understanding your rights and responsibilities under these laws can help you hold collection agencies legally accountable. Seek legal assistance if you need help resolving a dispute with a collection agency.
