Absolutely. Here are some Sample Cases filed in Federal Court
In 2016, a judge in U.S. District Court, District of Colorado, refused IC Systems motion for summary judgment in Irvine v. IC System for alleged violations of the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act. The court granted in part the customer’s motion for summary judgment. According to the judge’s decision, the consumer alleges that IC System attempted to collect a veterinary invoice and violated the FDCPA in the practice of its own collection calls and credit bureau reporting. The judge ruled the the debt collector violated the FDCPA once the debt collector advised the consumer that the debt would remain on her credit report before it had been paid; that she had contested the debt; the debt collector had to notify the credit bureaus that she had contested the debt and that the debt collector had to mention that the debt was disputed in its communication about the debt.

Understanding Your Debt Collection Rights
If you’re being bothered by debt collectors, it’s important to bear in mind that you have rights. The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) is a law which mandates that debt collectors behave in certain ways to protect you from harassment and from the launch of personal financial information. 1 part of the law states that debt collectors aren’t permitted to contact you in a place or time that they understand to be inconvenient. Consequently, if a debt collector attempts to phone you at work and you let them know that you’re not permitted to take calls at work, they need to to stop calling you there. Debt collectors are also not permitted to give information regarding your debt to anyone else, and are generally only permitted to speak with third parties to be able to attempt and discover how to contact you. Once they have your contact info, they’re not permitted to speak to your friends, relatives, neighbors, or coworkers.
If a debt collector violates the provisions of the FDCPA, you could have the ability to recover statutory damages up to $1,000 plus attorney fees and court costs.
