Swift Funds Financial Debt Calls

Are you being harassed with Swift Funds debt collection calls? Every year, the number of complaints the FCT receives about third-party debt collectors like Swift Funds seems to be on the increase. When creditors or businesses hire a collection agency like Swift Funds to recover their debt on their behalf, the agreement is usually that when the collection agency recovers the debt, they get paid a percentage of it.

A lot of effort is put into Swift Funds’ debt collection processes because they get a share from every recovered debt. This sometimes leads to them employing drastic means just to ensure that a debtor is pressured into paying what they owe.

It is lawful for a debt collector to contact you during Swift Funds’ debt collection and speak about your debt, but it is unlawful for them to bring any form of discomfort and fear to you. If a debt collector is using cuss words to speak to you, threatening or harassing you, calling you at very odd hours, and calling your family and friends over and over again, that could be Swift Funds phone harassment and they are violating your rights as a consumer. This is against the law, and you should communicate to the debt collector that you are aware of your rights, and they are beginning to violate them. If Swift Fund’s’ phone harassment persists after this warning, you can file a complaint to your State’s Attorney General or call us on 877-700-5790.

How Do Debt Collectors Get Your Number?

Debt collectors like Swift Funds Financial work for creditors to collect debts on their behalf and they get paid for the job. This is why they seem relentless in their calls and attempts to get you to pay.

Debt collectors have the right to call you. It’s their job.

If you’re going through Swift Funds debt collection and you are wondering how they got your number, these are five possible ways.

  • Your creditor

  • Credit report.

Information about you which includes your phone number and address is on your credit report. Debt collectors have legal access to your credit report. So, your phone number is no hidden thing.

  • People who know you. 

A process called skip tracing to locate people who owe debts. Debt collectors can find out more about you from your family members and friends. They can as well get your phone number.

  • When you call.

During Swift Funds debt collection, a mail could be sent from the debt collector to you through your email address on your credit report. Because you want to find out about the debt, you place a call across and they get your number.

  • The internet.

How do debt collectors violate consumer rights?

Debt collectors have been seen over time employing different tactics in their debt collection processes. People have complained about receiving threats and scary statements from debt collectors.

When a debt collector begins to say scary things to you, threatening to hurt you or make your life uncomfortable, they are violating your rights under the FDCPA.

Other common ways which debt collectors like swift funds collections violate consumer rights include:

  • Calling them before 8 am and after 9 pm: This could be Swift Funds phone harassment, because these are odd hours and the FDCPA prohibits debt collectors from calling you at these times unless you had given them prior consent to do so.
  • Making threats to debtors: Debt collectors sometimes threaten consumers with jail terms, lawsuits, and even physical harm. This is a huge red flag you should address immediately.
  • Sharing information about consumer debt: Some debt collectors go as far as discussing details about a consumer’s debt with third parties.
  • Calling a consumer’s workplace: After telling a debt collector that they are not allowed to call you at work, it is a violation of the FDCPA for them to do so.
  • Harassing a consumer with phone calls: When a debt collector begins to make your phone ring many times a day, it is known as harassment and is a violation.

The above practices are unlawful and should be reported once noticed. Call us on 877-700-5790 now to get immediate assistance.

  • Swift funds financial services calling you at home more than twice every seven days for each debt. If they are calling at your place of employment (if you have granted them permission to do so), then Swift funds financial cannot call you more than twice for each debt in any 30-day period.
  • If Swift capital funds is placing anonymous calls to you, they are not acting in terms with debt collection laws. You, on the other hand, should be cautious, as the person calling you may be a scammer pretending to be a Swift funds debt collector.
  • If Swift funds collection is bypassing your attorney and contacting you directly even when they know that you are being represented by one, they are violating your rights.

  • Swift collection agency is prohibited from lying to you or misleading you (this could be just to scare you into paying up quickly) in an attempt to collect a debt.
  • If a Swift funds debt collector tries to trick you into paying an amount that is not what is on the debt agreement, they have broken the law.
  • Telling you that the non-payment of your debt will can lead to you being arrested, jailed, or punished in some way.
  • Threatening to damage your credit score, as they are not authorized to report any false information.
  • Threatening you with an action that cannot legally be taken, or one that they do not intend to take.
  • If Swift collection knows that the statute of limitations on a debt has elapsed yet they still try to collect it by tricking you into making a payment, hence re-starting the clock, without giving you adequate information about the consequences of your actions, then they have violated debt collection laws.
  • Using harassing, profane, and obscene language in their communication with you.
  • Revealing sensitive information concerning your debt to an unauthorized third party (such as your friends, neighbors, or coworkers). Under debt collection laws, Swift funds can reveal information about the debt only to your spouse, parent (if you are a minor), or co-signor.
