Absolutely. Here are some Sample Cases
Complaints against Synerprise Consulting Services commonly cite problems with inaccurate reports of delinquent credit items and inaccurate record keeping. In October 2016, a complainant indicated that he had been billed by SCS for a debt that had already been paid. SCS had initially removed the delinquent item from the complainant’s credit report, then resubmitted the same item several months later. The complainant alleged that his credit score dropped by 50 points. He also submitted a hard copy of his “account summary with the dates of service and amounts owed… [along with] a record of…payments.” The complainant “disputed [the] claim with Equifax but [his] credit score is still damaged.” In response, SCS agreed to remove the items in question.
In April 2016, a complainant indicated he had been billed by Synerprise Consulting Services for $700 for medical treatment that he claimed he did not owe. The complainant “called the hospital [where he] … was seen…and they confirmed he does not owe anything.” The complainant requested and received a statement that indicated there were no outstanding financial obligations. He sent the statement to SCS to substantiate his dispute, but he continued to receive collection calls. He insisted the debt was illegitimate and also disputed its validity with the credit reporting agencies. He requested that Synerprise Consulting Services cease and desist all collection efforts and remove his information from their database. In response, SCS indicated that they had received the complainant’s dispute and the statement. They explained that the dates of service on the statement were for December 2012 and July 2013, but that the dates of service in question were from 2010. In addition, the creditor was not the hospital, and the “charity letter” indicating there were no outstanding bills referred to a different matter. Synerprise Consulting Services indicated further that they would honor the complainant’s request to cease and desist collection activity; had removed the accounts from the database; and had sent deletion requests to the credit reporting agencies. In his rebuttal to this reply, the complainant indicated that the 2012 and 2013 dates of service “referred to the hospital reviewing/denying/approving [his] charity case at the hospital” rather than the actual treatment dates, which were in 2010. He also indicated that he had “asked for the debts… owed from the creditor [SCS had] …on file and there was nothing found. [He] called the hospital and numbers [Synerprise Consulting Services provided] …[for] the creditor, [and] again nothing was found.”
The Fair Debt Collections Practices Act (FDCPA) and the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) are enforced by the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) and the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB). The 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). The complaint above illustrates how these laws can be extremely effective tools to hold accountable collection agencies who fail to adhere to their provisions.
These laws also provide individuals 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.
