A collection agency is collecting a debt I don’t owe. What should I do? This question plagues Louisiana consumers as aggressive and unreasonable debt collectors attempt to collect from anyone they think likely to pay. Luckily, it’s a violation of federal law to falsely represent the amount or character of a debt, or to collect amounts not authorized by contract or law. This is thanks to the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, which regulates the conduct of debt collectors nationwide. If you believe you have a claim under the Act, you may be entitled to monetary damages as well as any costs and attorney’s fees associated with your claim for damages. So, what should you do if you receive a collection call or letter for amounts you don’t owe? Contact Samuel J. Ford, Esq. We can represent you at no out-of-pocket cost to you!
