Advanced Financial Company Phone Harassment?
Have you been receiving numerous calls from Advanced Financial Company? Are these calls tiring and do they never seem to stop? Advanced Financial Company is a debt collection agency contacting you about the debt they believe you owe. Believe here implies that under the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) you have the right to request debt verification.
Here, the collection agency is expected to provide clear details about your debt for you to be able to verify that it is actually yours. The FDCPA is not just for debt verification, it is a body of Federal laws which ensure that the rights of consumers like you are not violated by debt collection agencies like advancedfinco while trying to recover a debt. Under the FDCPA Advanced Financial Company is not allowed to:
- Call or come to your workplace (especially if you have told them not to)
- Call you at inconvenient times.
- Try to get you to pay more than you owe.
- Use nasty and abusive words while addressing you
- Present false information about your debt.
- Publish your debt.
- Threaten to harm you or your family in any way.
These are some of the things that are against the FDCPA Laws. Any collector that violates one or more of these may have broken the law. However, it is not against the law for a collection agency to sue you in an event that they failed to recover the debt owed. Suing a consumer is usually one of the last options a debt collector resorts to and usually happens when the amount owed is substantial.
If a debt collector is doing any of the above to you, they are violating your rights and you can stop them. Call us now on 877-700-5790 to discover how.
What to do if a debt collection agency sues you.
If you get sued, it is necessary to always respond to the lawsuit. You can either respond personally or through an attorney, and your response should be by the time stipulated in the court papers.
When a debt collector like Advanced Financial sues you, they would have to prove the validity of the debt. You should also endeavor to carefully go through the lawsuit and respond when due, as failure to respond would make the court rule in favor of the collector. You might also lose the right to dispute your debt if the court rules against you. If the court rules in favor of the collector, they may be allowed to:
- Claim your property
- Garnish your wages
- Have the go-ahead to freeze or garnish some or all the funds in your bank account.
You do not want this to happen. It is for this reason that it is extremely important to respond accordingly to your court summons and seek the counsel of a qualified lawyer.
