Absolutely. Here is a Sample Case Filed in Federal Court from Gulf Coast Collection Bureau
In 2014, a judge in U.S. District Court, Middle District of Florida, denied Gulf Coast Collection Bureau’s motion to dismiss Lee v. Gulf Coast Collection Bureau for alleged violations of the Florida Consumer Collection Practices Act and the Telephone Consumer Protection Act. According to the judge’s decision, the customer allegedly accrued hospital bills, and the hospital gave Gulf Coast Collection Bureau the debt to accumulate, together with the customer’s cell phone number. The customer supposedly asked the debt collection agency to stop calling, and delivered Gulf Coast Collection Bureau a cease and desist letter, and revoked consent to call his mobile phone. Allegedly, they still continued to call. The debt collection agency contended that there might not be a TCPA violation because the calls were made with the customer’s consent to be called from the hospital.

Understanding Your Debt Collection Rights
Sometimes debt collectors will attempt to use threats of violence or intimidation to attempt and collect on a debt. However, this behavior isn’t permitted under the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA), and based on the behavior it could also be illegal under state law. The FDCPA prohibits not only threats of violence, but also threatening to damage your reputation or damage your property. Additionally it is a violation of the FDCPA for a debt collector to inform you that they’ll take legal actions, such as garnishment, or have you arrested. Even if the debt collector does have the right to sue you for the debt, it’s still a violation of the FDCPA for the debt collector to undermine you if they have no intention to follow through. Victims of debt collector harassment may recover up to $1,000 in statutory damages under the FDCPA, plus attorney fees and court costs.
