Facing Lakeside Receivables LLC Debt Collection Harassment?

If you are facing harassment from Lakeside Receivables LLC, then you should know that harassment by a debt collector can come in different forms and may be facilitated by a desperate need to recoup debts by the collection agency.

Nevertheless, standard examples of debt collection harassment include repetitious phone calls intended to annoy or abuse the receiver, the use of obscene language over the course of the call, and threats of violence, defamation, or jail time.

A good tip is to keep a good record of all of your communications with a debt collector. This record can include call recordings, phone records, emails, and letters.

What you don’t know about the FDCPA

The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) is the rule guiding debt collectors, and it stipulates that debt collectors can’t harass, oppress, or abuse you or anyone else they contact in the course of collecting a debt.

Some classic examples of harassment that are prohibited by the FDCPA are:

  • Repetitious phone calls that are intended to annoy, abuse, or harass you or any person answering the phone
  • The use of obscene or profane language during communication with you
  • Making threats of violence, bodily harm, or jail time that they do not intend to follow up on
  • Publishing lists intended to shame people who have been unable to pay their debts (this excludes reporting information to a credit reporting company)
  • Calling you anonymously without telling you who they are. Debt collectors are obligated to reveal their identities.

Under the FDCPA, you are allowed to sue a debt collector for violations of the FDCPA.  If you sue under the FDCPA and win, the debt collector must generally pay your attorney’s fees and may also have to pay you damages in the amount of $1000.
