Your Phone Harassment Checklist:

  • Robocalling your cell phone without your consent
  • How to identify a robocall: When you answer your cell phone, you hear silence, music, or clicking sounds before being connected to a live person
  • Robocalls before 8:00 a.m. or after 9:00 p.m.
  • Robocalling after you've asked the debt collector to stop calling
  • Stop the harassment. Once you've retained Lemberg Law, the debt collection calls will stop
  • Get up to $1,500 per call. Sue for violations of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act
  • Zero upfront costs. Our legal help costs you nothing out of pocket; we don't get paid unless you win
If you’ve experienced any of these, you may have a case.

What does debt abuse look like?

Attorney Sergei Lemberg gives hypothetical examples of potential FDCPA or TCPA violations.
For example, this guy graduated from University of North Texas and had a ton of student loans to repay. He wasn’t able to find a job right away, so ended up racking up a ton of credit card debt to be able to to pay for rent and utilities and go to the supermarket. When he finally got a job with KFC, he wasn't able to make enough money to pay all of his expenses. Even though he graduated in media, it took him three years to find work in that field. He eventually got on his feet and could pay back a lot of the money he owed, apart from that credit card bill, which never made it to the top of the list. After some weeks, he stopped getting calls from the credit card company. Then, ten years later, he starts getting letters and phone calls from a bill collection agent. He got to know that the agency purchased a whole bunch of debt from the credit card company for pennies on the dollar and was trying to collect the debt. The rep told him that they would take him to court over an old debt. The debt collection agency likely went against the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act because the bill was past the statute of limitations and therefore wasn’t legally enforceable. It’s against the FDCPA for a debt collection agency to threaten to take legal action when they’re not able to.
Here is an example: it is Saturday and you are relaxing at home fixing lunch alongside your sister, and you're really glad it's the weekend. You have worked extra hours this week and you are happy about having this family time. Your cell phone rings and you pick up the phone to hear that it is CBE Group. In fact, it’s the same bill collection agency that you had repeatedly spoken with earlier in the week. You're upset and you tell them with clenched teeth that you have already talked to someone about it and hang up the phone. These kinds of repeated calls might be a violation of the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act.
