On December 7, 2004 I took out a payday loan from Ace Cash Express in Pennsylvania for about $360. I gave them a check postdated for my next pay period but couldnt pay it when my paydate came. I moved to Georgia, where i currently reside, and once i was able to i started paying one collection agency back for this on a monthly basis. I made a payment last month now a different collection agency by the name of Delanore Kimper and Associates is calling me threatening me with jail time if i dont pay it in full. The agency lied and told me they were a lawfirm when they are not, and violated the fdcpa in very many ways when they called my job and faxed me a ridiculous letter that had my jobs address on it and no disclosure or mini miranda. I work for a collection agency, but I would like to know if this is indeed something that i will go to jail for because i am very scared about that part. My boss and his attorney are going to help me file suit against this agency for all of their violations. They didnt realize they were calling a collector!!!!!
By signing up a debt counseling session, your provided details (Name, Email ID and Phone No.) will be forwarded to the company advertising on the DebtCC. However, you have no obligation to use their services.
Some creditors and collection agencies refuse to lower the payoff amount, interest rate, and fees owed by the consumer.
Creditors/collection agencies can make collection calls and file lawsuits against the consumers represented by the debt relief companies.
Debt relief services may have a negative impact on the consumer's creditworthiness and his overall debt amount may increase due to the accumulation of extra fees.
The amount which the consumer saves with the use of debt relief services can be regarded as taxable income.
