End harassment from RCS Capital Partners
Is RCS Capital Partners harassing you over your defaulted loan and the repayment options available to you?
Because you may be receiving calls right now, you may not realize that debt collectors have their collection tactics closely monitored by the FDCPA (Fair Debt Collection Practices Act), thus, they are limited in the context of what they can and cannot do in the context of debt collection.
Therefore, if you have fallen behind on your bills, and are currently in touch with a debt collection organization, it is important to remember that you have rights which deserve to be respected. If a collector violates the FDCPA, you can sue the collector in court. The law allows consumers who have been victims of harassment from debt collectors to get the calls to stop in addition to recover statutory damages of up to $1,000, plus attorney fees and court costs.
4 ways RCS Capital Partners may be breaking the law
Do you know that RCS Capital Partners may be breaking the law in trying to get you to resolve your debt quickly? Even though RCS Capital Partners is entitled to collect the debt you owe them, they are not allowed to use whatever means they deem necessary to get payments out of you. Below are the top 4 ways you may never have imagined that RCS Capital Partners could be violating your consumer rights.
- Calling you at inconvenient times: Does the representative from RCS Capital Partners call you too early when you have barely gotten out of bed, too late, or at your place of employment? The fact that you owe a debt collection agency a debt doesn’t give them the right to invade your privacy whenever they please. doing so could be a serious violation of the FDCPA laws.
- Embarrassing you: As stated earlier, the fact that you owe RCS Capital Partners a debt doesn’t mean that they have a right to treat you as they please. Another way that RCS Capital Partners may be breaking the law is if they embarrass you over your unsettled debt. This embarrassment may come in the form of a belligerent tone, hurling insulting words at you, telling unauthorized persons about your unresolved debt, and even showing up at your workplace. These acts are highly inconvenient and are thus against the law.
- Feeding you wrong information: It is not uncommon for debt collection agencies to misinterpret the information contained on a customer’s account. They often (deliberately or not) misread the loan figures or interest rates on the loan. However unintentional this may be, it is still illegal.
- Bypass your attorney: If you have legal representation, your debt collection representative is not permitted to bypass them and communicate directly with you. Doing so would be to carelessly flout the law.
