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.
As of April 2017, the Better Business Bureau reported 319 closed EOS CCA complaints over the previous few decades, including 59 closed complaints over the past 12 months. The BBB provides EOS CCA an A+ rating. Additionally, Justia lists 22 complaints filed in federal court in the past year alleging violations of the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, and one alleging violations of the Fair Credit Reporting Act. Moreover, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) lists 199 closed complaints for 2016.
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 v. 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.
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 v. 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.

It is illegal for a debt collector to threaten 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.

The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) was created to protect the consumer from debt collection practices of an abusive or predatory nature. 1 part of those laws prohibits a debt collector from falsely representing the situation or himself. So, by way of example, a debt collector can not imply that they are an attorney when that isn’t the fact or send any correspondence or communication which implies it’s been delivered by an attorney when in all truth it hasn’t been sent by a law office. Additionally, the debt collector can’t threaten to take any action that can’t be legally pursued.
In case you’ve suffered from debt collector misuse, recourse is available.
