Does ACA Receivables Company have Complaints against them?
The BBB does not have any listed complaints against ACA Receivables Company at this time. The CFPB consumer complaint database also holds no complaints against the company in their logs either.
However, there are various message boards, such as complaintsboard.com, that have listed ACA Receivables as being harassing and persistent.
What kind of Complaints have been made?
Although there are few in number, the complaints made towards ACA Receivables Company were seen as persistent and harassing phone calls to the victims in question. This includes such things such as calling at various times, inside and outside of legal periods; calling the victim's workplace; calling the victim's family and friends.
One such complaint notes that the debt collector from ACA Receivables attempted to call multiple times to the victim, even when told to stop. Once the phone call was done, the call receiver was listed as ACA Receivables Company. However, the representative had stated that they were from American Receivables instead. This put a question of authenticity to the debt, and put the victim on edge.
There has also been mention that they go under the name American Receivables as well. Indeed, on Bloomberg's profiles of companies, the website listed is www.americanagencies.com. This discrepancy can cause major confusion, and cause improper information and possible attempts of mismanaging clientele background profiles.
Are the Practices of ACA Receivables Company Legal?
Although calling a debtor is not considered illegal, persistent and aggressive calling can be considered illegal. Through what is known as the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, or FDCPA for short, you are protected against debt collector harassment and excessive abuse. Debt collector harassment can come in many forms, including, but is not limited to:
- Excessive phone calls
- Threatening of legal action
- Robo calls
- Threatening letters and emails
- Harassment of family and friends and coworkers and workplace
These are just a few of the more notable instances of debt collector harassment. Excessive phone calls can include being called at night or midnight, or early in the morning. If a debt collector threatens legal action through a letter or email, it can be considered debt collector harassment.
If you have been contacted before and have no affiliation with the company or debt that they are attempting to contact you about, you may have been a victim of debt collector harassment through a wrong number. This is when a debt collection agency has no discrepancy on who they call. Instead, they call numbers that hold similar names as to who the debtor is, in an attempt to try to fleece you to pay up.
