Atlantic Collection Agency Phone Harassment?
Is Atlantic Collection Agency (ACA) calling you?
Debt collection harassment refers to any unfair, deceptive, and abusive method a debt collector uses to pursue or collect a debt. Debt collection harassment happens in different ways. It ranges from persistent phone calls to threats, to pestering people over debts they may or may not owe, to telling third parties about a person’s debt, and intruding into a consumer’s privacy.
In whatever form it comes, debt collection harassment is always a terrible experience for people on the receiving end. People have filed various complaints about debt collectors’ unfair treatments in time past and laws have been put in place to ensure that debt collectors do not continue to carry out these unethical activities. Debt collection harassment is a crime and it has penalties under the FDCPA.

Who is a debt collector and why are they calling me?
A debt collector is a person or an agency who pursues debts on behalf of a creditor or lender. Debt collectors may not actually own the debt that you owe, they are just hired by creditors and businesses to pursue debts on their behalf in exchange for a percentage or commission.
Debt collectors may also completely buy a debt from the original creditor, this means that they now own the debt and recover it for themselves. Debt collectors who do this are called debt buyers.
It is always good to pay up debt before a third-party debt collector becomes involved. When a debt collector becomes involved in a debt collection case, you have to pay the debt to them and not your original creditor anymore.
If you are getting calls from a debt collector, below are a few reasons it may be happening;
- You may have fallen behind on some of your bills and a debt collector has been given your delinquent account.
- The debt collector may just be trying to get the name or address of a friend or family of yours.
- Your debt may have been sold to a debt buyer.
Whatever the reason may be, if a debt collector is calling you, do not ignore them. Speak to them and find out the reason for their call, as ignoring a debt that is yours may have serious unintended consequences.
