Who is EOS CCA?
EOS CCA is a multinational debt purchaser and collection agency which was founded in 1991. The business’s U.S. headquarters are located in Norwell, Massachusetts. The debt collection agency was initially called Collection Company of America. In 2001, it became a part of Hamburg, Germany-based EOS Group, which has locations in over 25 nations. It took the title EOS CCA in 2009.
This agency collects debts in almost any industry, such as telecom, student loan, health care, utilities, and financial services.
In December 2015, the U.S. Consumer Financial Protection Bureau obtained a judgment against EOC CCA for more than $2 million. The lawsuit alleged that this agency was collecting on accounts which were already paid or too old to lawfully collect, and making false reports to credit bureaus.

Is EOS CCA a scam?
They’re legit. EOS CCA Collections is a legitimate debt collection agency with an extensive 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 NSA Collections 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.

Sample Case Filed in Federal Court
In 2016, a judge in U.S. District Court, Southern District of Indiana, denied in part and granted in part the Customer’s motion for summary judgment in Reed vs. EOS CCA for alleged violations of the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act. According to the judge’s decision, the customer said he’d Cingular Wireless service, which AT&T Mobility continued to give service when it obtained Cingular — even though the customer never entered into an arrangement with AT&T. He explained that his was one of two million AT&T Mobility accounts purchased by U.S. Asset Management, which hired EOS CCA to collect the debt. The consumer alleged that the debt collection agency sent him a letter saying he owed principal, interest, and collection costs, and that his credit report revealed that he owed over the initial $431. An agency representative testified that neither U.S. Asset Management nor EOS CCA had the first Cingular Wireless contract or some other documentation with the customer’s signature. The judge ruled that the consumer was entitled to summary judgment because EOS CCA employed false, deceptive, or misleading representation in connection with the collection of a debt, and since the debt collector attempted to collect a sum that was not authorized by the agreement creating the debt. The judge denied summary judgment on a different FDCPA claim, and educated a magistrate judge to meet with the customer and EOS CCA to ascertain the right amount of compensation to award the customer.
Can you help me file a No Fee Lawsuit against EOS CCA?
Absolutely. Here are some past Press Releases of Lawsuits Brought On By Lemberg Law
February 18, 2013. A report and recommendation from a magistrate judge means that Butto and Houser vs. Collecto, Inc. (U.S. District Court, Eastern District of New York, Case No. 2:10-cv-02906(ADS)(AKT)) is one step closer to receiving class certification. Lemberg & Associates is representing Victoria Butto, who are suing Collecto, Inc. (doing business as EOS/CCA) for unlawful and predatory debt collection practices. The suit alleges that Verizon Wireless turned over Ms. Butto’s debt to Collecto for collection. Collecto sent her a debt collection letter that added collection fees to the amount owed. Collecto had made arrangements with Verizon that they would receive their payments when Collecto had successfully collected on the debts. If Collecto didn’t collect on the debt, they weren’t entitled to any fees. Because no monies had been recovered at the time Collecto sent the letter, it was not entitled to its collection fees. The suit alleges that Collecto therefore misled Ms. Butto by creating a false impression that they incurred collection fees and owed that money, in violation of the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act.
The Report and Recommendation filed by the court recommended that the presiding judge grand class certification to the following: New York consumers who were sent a collection letter by Collecto, Inc. DBA EOS/CCA for a Verizon Wireless account, which included a collection fee for Verizon Wireless service that hadn’t yet been incurred when the letter was sent.
Can EOS CCA Sue Me or Garnish My Wages?
It is illegal for a debt collector to make empty threats to sue you or garnish your wages. It is also unlikely EOS CCA 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.

EOS CCA 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.
