Delta Management Associates Phone Harassment-Stop the Calls!
Tired of putting up with Delta Management Associates’ phone harassment? Anyone who has been in one form of debt, or the other has likely encountered debt collectors like Delta Management Associates. Every now and then, people fall behind on bills and if they’re unable to catch up on time, they start getting calls from Delta Management Associates or any other third-party debt collector.
Getting contacted by debt collectors is usually not the best of experiences; many times, it automatically means getting countless phone calls and messages even at odd hours of the day.
There are federal laws that regulate Delta Management Associates’ debt collection practices. If Delta Management Associates is harassing you with phone calls, they are violating your rights under the FDCPA (Fair Debt Collection Practices Act) and the TCPA (Telephone Consumers Protection Act), two laws that protect the rights of consumers in the context of debt collection. When a debt collector violates either of these laws, there are strict penalties prescribed for them.
You do not have to put up with Delta Management Associates’ phone harassment and threats. You have the right to take action. Call us at 877-700-5790 for assistance.
What should you do when a debt collector harasses you?
Ignorance of their rights under the FDCPA makes many consumers endure unnecessary pestering from debt collectors. Delta Management Associates phone harassment is a popular antic that agencies like DMA employs. They bombard your phone with frequent calls to the point that you begin to feel suffocated. Delta Management Associates phone harassment is against the law and if you are experiencing it, this is what you should do:
- Ask them to stop: You can ask Delta Management to stop harassing you with phone calls because it is against the law. If a debt collector sees that you know your rights, he may just stop the harassment, but this doesn’t always work and that is why extra measures are needed.
- Send a cease-and-desist letter: The FDCPA allows you to send a letter to any collection agency harassing you with phone calls, asking them to cease contacting you over your unpaid debt. The letter serves as a notice to the debt collector to stop calling your phone. After this letter, all Delta Management Associates debt collection calls should stop, and they are only allowed to communicate with you if they plan to serve you court documents. A debt collection agency ignoring a cease-and-desist letter is also unlawful and you can decide to sue the collection agency at this point.
The Statute of limitations
Every debt has a statute of limitations. A statute of limitations is the window of time during which a debt collector can sue you over a debt. When the statute of limitations of a debt expires, the debt is no longer legally enforceable which means that the debt collector can no longer take you to court over it.
The statute of limitations for debts varies depending on the state. To know the statute of limitations for your state, you should consult an attorney who is specialized in debt law. Generally, the statute of limitations usually ranges from 3 to 10 years.
The moment you stop taking action on a delinquent debt account, the statute of limitations starts counting.
However, there are certain actions which when committed (whether intentionally or mistakenly), can revive an old debt. Engaging in any of the following practices can restart the statute of limitations on an old debt:
- Acknowledging that you owe a debt. If you admit to owning the debt when the debt collector calls you, you restart the statute of limitations of the debt.
- Making a payment of any amount. Delta Management Group may call and try to trick you into paying. They’ll likely say you should make a payment of a little token to help you access some benefits. If you fall for this, you may have restarted the statute of limitations on an old debt.
- Agreeing to pay off some of the debt. If you enter into a payment plan or accept a settlement offer from Delta Management, the clock on the statute of limitations is automatically restarted.
- Any form of activity on the same account. If you make any change to the delinquent account, the statute of limitations will be restarted.

Debt Collection Is Big Business
Debt collection is a $40 billion dollars a year business in the US alone. Collection agencies will often cross the line as to what they can legally do to collect on a debt because it will increase their profits in a cut-throat industry. Due to these illegal tactics, Congress created the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (or the FDCPA). The FDCPA is a federal statute that regulates how third-party collection agencies can contact consumers and protects consumers from unfair collection practices. If a collection agency violates the FDCPA, you may be eligible to receive up to $1,000.00 in statutory compensation, plus all of your attorney fees and costs.
Thousands of claims are brought each year against collection agencies by consumers that have been harassed. Often these claims result in the script being flipped and the collection agencies paying monetary damages to the very people they were trying to collect from.
