Alleged Consumer Right violations against Collection Bureau of the Hudson Valley, Inc.

In July of 2018, three New York consumers filed a class-action lawsuit against Collection Bureau of the Hudson Valley, Inc. The plaintiffs claim that Collection Bureau of the Hudson Valley, Inc. failed to appropriately identify creditors in collection letters sent to them. Similarly, in another case filed against Collection Bureau of the Hudson Valley, Inc., the plaintiff received a letter from the above-named debt collection agency in connection with a debt purportedly owed to Optimum that the man had disputed. The lawsuit says the letter was labeled as a “Notice of Intent” and stated:

“Our records indicate there is still a balance on this past due account. Please respond to this letter within seven days or we may take additional collection efforts. The creditor shown above has authorized us to submit this account to the nationwide credit reporting agencies. As required by law, you are hereby notified that a negative credit report reflecting on your credit record may be submitted to a credit reporting agency if you fail to fulfill the terms of your credit obligations.”

The charges claim that Collection Bureau of the Hudson Valley, Inc. aimed to use deceptive methods to get the recipient into claiming the obligation and admitting liability. They did this by implying that the only way to the recipient would avoid negative credit reporting is to make a payment. The letter also neglected to provide lawful disclosures regarding the plaintiff’s right to dispute the debt or request validation.
