Have you ever heard about the FDCPA? The FDCPA is a strong federal law, fully known as the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act. It shields people against certain unlawful collection practices carried out by many collection agencies such as Berlin-Wheeler, Inc phone harassment, calling excessively, threatening to sue you for a debt for which the statute of limitations has expired, calling you at work, or at unfavorable hours of the day, etc. The law only applies to third-party debt collectors like during Berlin-Wheeler, Inc debt collection and can be used for only personal debts (this means that the FDCPA does not include debts acquired by a corporation or business debts acquired by an individual). The laws, however, vary from state to state.
You have a right during Berlin-Wheeler, Inc debt collection to demand that they respect your FDCPA (Fair Debt Collection Practices Act) rights and treat you with the dignity worthy of your person. If they fail to do so, you can be awarded up to $1000 for every FDCPA violation claim, and at times have your debt waved. Call us today on 844-791-1990, if you believe your FDCPA rights were violated during Berlin-Wheeler, Inc debt collection.
How to Avoid Falling For Debt Collection Scams
Falling for debt collection scams can be terrible, especially when you sincerely meant to pay off your debt. You could possibly have gotten a call from a supposed third party collection agency like the Collection Bureau of Hudson Valley. This doesn’t authenticate the caller. Whether you receive a call claiming to be from the Berlin-Wheeler, Inc or any other debt collection agency, don’t immediately give in saying “it is the Berlin-Wheeler, Inc, it can’t be a scam”. It actually can.
How then would you recognize if the call is a scam call?
- The so-called collector would insist that you pay immediately, not even giving you a time frame, but would push you to pay right away.
- The collector won’t want cash payment but would ask you to pay via mobile transfer. This is very common with scammers.
- The collector could go as far as threatening you. This is by far overriding your rights as a debtor and violates the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA).
- This so-called collector would ask you to provide information about yourself that should be in the custody of the Collection Bureau of Hudson Valley already.
Here are three ways to avoid falling for debt collection scams.
- Cut the call. Easy right? Yes. If this caller is really from Berlin-Wheeler, Inc, you will receive another call. If not, the caller might know you’re not falling for the lie and let you be. But if this doesn’t work, do the next thing.
- Record the conversation and report to the authorities. If the call is indeed from the Collection Bureau of Hudson Valley, you can sue for violating the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) by harassing you. But if it is not, the caller can be brought to justice when he or she is found out.
- Ask for an authentication. Let the caller give you proof that you do owe and the debt collector is calling from the Collection Bureau of Hudson Valley. This can scare this scam debt collector away since he or she cannot further proof that they have been sent by the Collection Bureau of Hudson Valley or any other debt collection agency in the first place.
