Harassing or Repeated Telephone Calls
Debt collectors are not permitted to use any means they choose to hound a consumer debtor into paying. While the federal Fair Debt Collection Practices Act lays down some ground rules, state laws may be even stricter. The complaint for this class action alleges that Select Portfolio Servicing, Inc. (SPS) violated the Massachusetts Consumer Protection Act (MCPA) and the Massachusetts Debt Collection Regulations (MDCR) by calling consumers as many as eight times in a week.
This double-barreled class action claims violation of both the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA) and the Texas Debt Collection Act (TDCA). The complaint alleges that Peter A. KLC and Associates, PLLC, which does business as Paramount Acceptance, violated both these laws in placing debt collection calls to consumers’ cell phones.
