Debt Collection

Deception and abuse are rampant in the area of debt collection. The Federal Trade Commission has reported that debt collectors generate more complaints by consumers to the FTC than any other industry.

The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (“FDCPA”) provides remedies for consumers who have been subject to harassment, false statements, and other unfair practices by debt collectors.

Jim Pietz has successfully brought a class action that claimed that debt collectors were illegally adding fees to the amounts that they were attempting to collect.
