Professional Adjustment Corp Debt Collection Harassment

Is Professional Adjustment Corp calling you ceaselessly? If you have a third-party debt collector like Professional Adjustment Corp aggressively calling you over your unpaid debts, then you are probably unaware of what debt collection practices are prohibited in by federal laws such as the FDCPA and the TCPA. In the past, many people filed for bankruptcy due to the harassing debt collection practices employed by many debt collectors like Professional Adjustment Corp in a bid to collect a debt; this is one of the reasons why the FDCPA was enacted by congress. We all don’t plan it, but tough financial times do arise, and many people who find themselves in such tough times are unable to pay their debts. Many times, they just wish that the debt collector would stop pestering them while they figure out a workable way to pay off their debts.

Third-party debt collection is one industry that has thrived under the current economic environment. In recent years, people have increasingly acquired more debt and increasingly found themselves struggling to pay it back. Furthermore, the cost of living continues to skyrocket, and people’s income has not kept pace with the exponential increase in how much it costs to live comfortably. This is a major why average Americans continue to acquire more and more debt daily, and debt collectors continue to take advantage of the misfortune of others.

When you are in the process of dealing with Professional Adjustment Corp debt collection, your knowledge is your best weapon. There are federal laws established to protect you by prohibiting the unethical practices of debt collectors. These laws protect you by defining in black and white what is considered as ethical and unethical in Professional Adjustment Corp debt collection practices. They take it a step further by making provisions for you to get justice from an erring debt collection agency.

What do federal laws prohibit debt collection agents from engaging in?

The federal laws that protect your consumer rights outlaw certain actions on the part of debt collectors. According to federal laws, debt collectors like Professional Adjustment Corp cannot:

  • Call you multiple times with the intention of annoying you. That is Professional Adjustment Corp phone harassment. 
  • Threaten legal action or wage garnishment if they do not intend to take action and have an attorney,
  • Pretend to be an officer of the law or serve you falsified court documents.
  • Threaten actions that violate the dignity of your person and your consumer rights.
  • Give you legal advice or pretend to be an attorney if they are not qualified, legal officials.
  • Use letters and correspondence that are deceptive, such as using notices that look like court documents,
  • Take action with the intent to debase or shame you. Such actions include publishing your name in a newspaper or on social media as a delinquent debtor.
  • Refuse your request to validate a debt, especially if the request was made within 5 days from the date of initial contact.
  • Pretend to be a government-owned agency,
  • Communicate using a recorded message especially for the purposes of advertisement. This is also Professional Adjustment Corp phone harassment. 
  • Threaten to garnish your paycheck, as they are not authorized to do so.
  • Fail to disclose their identity or the agency’s full legal name as it appears on their license,
  • Use neighbors or any unauthorized 3rd party to stalk the consumer.
  • Collect money not included in the original debt agreement or fail to return an overpayment,
  • Collect extra fees or interest.
  • Conjure up deceptive documents with the intent to deceive.
  • Violate any provision of the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, the Telephone Consumers Protection Act, or the Fair Credit Reporting act

Does A Third Party Collection Agency Have The Right To Sue You?

As a debtor, here is a friendly advice: Don’t downplay the place of a third party collection agency. You might owe an individual or a company money, but when a debt collector calls about that debt and you have authenticated that it is a legal call it means that they have the right to follow up the payment of the debt. But do they have the right to sue you? Yes they do.
Three conditions that can make a debt collector sue you:

  • When your debt becomes delinquent: Don’t wait until your due date of payment expires. Save yourself the stress, embarrassment and extra spending and pay off your debts before the due date.
  • When you deny that you owe the creditor: take responsibility for your debt. If you have problems paying before the due date, let the collection agency know. It’s only good that you don’t run away from a debt you truly owe.
  • When you don’t show up during a lawsuit: this is a major disadvantage on your part. Whatever takes you to court against a debt collector, either to find a more suitable way to pay your debt and you do not show up, the debt collector can sue you. This will give the court more reason to garnish your account or levy your wages. Not like this wouldn’t have happened if you couldn’t pay, but you stand little or no chance negotiating.

If you have tried all you could and pulled all possible strings but still cannot pay and you get sued by professional adjustment corporation, face it and get an attorney to defend you. When in court be reasonable and sincere, and if need be, file for bankruptcy. This can reduce the heat of the professional adjustment lawsuit.
