If you believe you owe $250 to a creditor, but the debt collector says you owe over $300, what can you do? The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) says you can dispute a portion of a debt.

Among other things, it contains a demand that overshadows the plaintiff's rights, threatens him with a lawsuit that cannot legally be brought, and pressures him to make a payment that would make the lawsuit possible again.

Papers on Clipboard Saying "Debt Collection"

The complaint for this class action claims that the debt collection letter sent out by Forster & Garbus was confusing about the total amount of the debt due and the minimum payment needed to stop collection actions.

Graduate with Ball and Chain

You’d think that a company that sues people for student loan debts would have to prove that they owned the debt. But this complaint claims that the defendants in this class action can’t do that.
