In the US, Texas, a debt collection agency allegedly, NCA (National Credit Adjusters) referred to several consumers as criminals in correspondence with them.
In each case, the debt collection agency (NCA) had purchased or been assigned the debts for collection.
In attempting to collect the debts, NCA allegedly made daily phone calls to mobile phones and the debtors workplace, and threatened to take the debtors to court in addition to referring to them as criminals.
The debtors are claiming that the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act and Telephone Consumer Protection Act have been breached.
In Australia, this type of alleged activity would certainly be against the ACCC and ASIC Guide to Debt Collection, The Competition and Consumer Act and possibly the Privacy Act.
