Released every month our debt collection blog contains news, stories and tips to keep you informed.
A debt collector in chasing a debt of $350 had a court Judgment ordered against him in the debtors favour for $33,000 for harassment under the Fair Debt Collection Practice Act.
It is difficult to ascertain the facts of the case as the debt collector did not attend court. The allegations from the debtor included receiving 15 text messages a day, debt collection phone calls after the debt way paid, informing the debtors employer and co-workers about the existence of the debt.
The debt collector has already stated he won't be paying the fine and is not concerned about the associated credit listing the judgment will bring.
