The Better Business Bureau (BBB) and Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) report over 160 complaints filed by consumers against Grant & Weber since 2015. Complaints on the two websites allege that the collection agency:

  • Used abusive language when attempting to collect on a debt
  • Refused to provide consumers with debt validation information
  • Used profane or obscene language
  • Attempted to collect the wrong amount on a debt
  • Reported false information to the credit reporting agencies
  • Attempted to collect fees or charges not authorized by the original contract
  • Falsely implied they were an attorney or calling on behalf of an attorney
  • Threatened consumers with actions they could not legally take or did not intend to take
  • Contacted consumers after being told to stop contacting them

These collection practices violate the federal Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA). Other practices specifically prohibited by the Act include:

  • Calling a consumer before 8:00 a.m. or after 9:00 p.m.
  • Falsely implying that a consumer can be arrested for not paying a bill
  • Advertising a debt for sale in order to coerce payment from the debtor
  • Threatening to take action that is not legal or intended
  • Using or threatening to use violence to collect on a debt
  • Falsely indicating that they are law enforcement official or affiliated with a government agency

Many of the consumers who filed online complaints allege that the medical bill Grant & Weber are attempting to collect on should have been paid by their health insurance company. If you are being harassed about a medical bill your insurance company should have paid, see our blog post, I am Being Harassed by a Debt Collector and My Insurance Should Have Paid for more information about why this happens and what you can do to stop the collection attempts.
