Are You Receiving Harassing Calls from Emergent Business Group?
Regardless of the type of personal debt you have accrued, the reasons why you have acquired it, or your current ability to repay it, third-party debt collectors like Emergent Business Group, often try to coerce you into paying off those debts. This often makes them cross the thin line that differentiates between what is legal and what is illegal during the debt collection process. Harassing
If you are currently receiving endless and disturbing calls from Emergent Business Group, then you get the picture of how debt collectors tend to cross the line. Your request to not be bothered again probably even went unanswered, and they might have turned the heat up by saying you are a criminal, and that they can contact or speak to you however they please simply because you owe a debt. They might have also committed one of the greatest injustices by force-feeding you wrong information just to scare you and get you to pay off your debt quickly. You may be going through all of these great injustices and wondering if there are any laws that prohibit these cruel acts. Well, luckily for you, there is.
The FDCPA (Fair Debt Collection Practices Act) instructs all third-party debt collectors to respect and protect the rights of their customers. This does not mean that they cannot call them and make attempts to collect on a debt, it only restricts the means and methods that they can use to get you to resolve your delinquent account. It is also noteworthy of mentioning that you can get up to $1000 in statutory damages for any FDCPA violation claim, as the debt collection agency is guilty of harassment and invading your personal life.

Why is Emergent Business Group calling?
You may be wondering why Emergent Business Group has suddenly started calling when you didn’t have any business to do with them. The reason is that if your debt has gone into default for the first time, you usually will usually be in communication with the internal collector of your original creditor (that is, the person or organization from whom you directly acquired the loan). This is known as a first-party debt collection agent.
If your debt has gone into default for a long time and you still fail to make payments to your first-party debt collection agent or original creditor, it will be assigned to a third-party debt collection organization. The debt is, however, still owned by, and owed to, the original creditor. If the third-party agency successfully gets you to resolve your debt, they will earn a commission on the amount that you pay. Because they earn only when they get you to resolve your debt, they will often go to the greatest lengths to ensure that you pay up.
The debt collection process is in its final stage when you do not make payments on your debt for so long that your original creditor will write it off and sell it (often for pennies on the dollar) to a third-party debt collection agency. In this stage of the process, your original creditor is no longer involved. The debt now belongs to the third-party agent, and it is now up to them to get you to pay.
Your original creditor’s internal collector is the first-party agent, you, as the debtor, are the second party, and if the debt gets transferred to a debt collection organization, they become the third party. This is why Emergent Business Group may be calling you.
