Are Alltran Financial LP's Practices Legal?
Whether a debt was previously paid or belongs to someone other than the person being contacted, it is considered collector harassment when a collections agency learns a debt is no longer valid (or is not valid in relation to a particular person) and continues to call or write with the intention of forcing the alleged debtor to pay up. These practices are unlawful under the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) and Rosenthal Fair Debt Collection Practices Act and could entitle you up to $1,000 in statutory damages, actual damages, an attorney at no cost to you, as well as other state and federal remedies.
