Some states Attorney General’s work FOR consumers when collection agencies fail to comply with the laws. According to WKBN.com, the Ohio Attorney General has filed a lawsuit against “Advanced Capital Solutions” for violations of the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA).
The lawsuit was filed by a Washington State consumer who said the collector left a voicemail at her place of employment stating “their client was seeking a decision on how to move forward with collection of a debt”. The consumer quickly contacted an attorney who filed a lawsuit against the collector themself and the collection agency for violations under the FDCPA including:
- The collector failing to identify himself during the communications
- Contacted the consumer after they had legal representation
- Discussed the debt with others not listed on the debt
The court found for the consumer and ordered the collection agency to pay a total of $4210, including the consumer’s legal fees.
