Halsted Financial Services (HFS)
Halsted Financial Services, also known as Halsted Financial Services, LLC and HFS, is a third party debt collector that seems to be as elusive as the consumers they track down using their skip tracing technology. The Halsted Financial Services website says that they collect for the automotive, retail, financial, manufacturing, healthcare, higher education, government, commercial, transportation, utilities and telecommunications industries. The HFS website says that they collect previously charged-off accounts. Generally speaking, these types of accounts may have already passed the statute of limitations; the collection remedies for these types of accounts are limited.
Halsted Financial Services Complaints
HFS doesn’t have a listing with the Better Business Bureau, or any listings with any of the online yellow page sites. The law offices of Edelman, Combs, Laturner & Goodwin, LLC have listed a document on their site that claims that Halsted Financial Services collects delinquent payday loans in Illinois and charges a 500 percent interest rate.
Stop Halsted Financial Services Harassment
The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act was passed to protect consumers from abusive and unfair collection practices by debt collectors. While the definition of “harassment” may vary from person to person, there are specific behaviors addressed in the FDCPA that apply to all companies like Halsted Financial Services that collect debt. If you are contacted by Halsted Financial Services regarding a past due account, you have certain specific rights. If those rights are violated by Halsted Financial Services, you have the right to specific remedies, including making a report to the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau and filing suit against Halsted Financial Services for violation of the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act.
You have the right to tell a debt collector to stop calling you about your debt at any time. When asked, the debt collection agency must provide you with the full name of the company and a mailing address where you can send a letter requiring them to stop contact regarding this debt. You may do this even if you owe the debt. After they receive that letter, the debt collection agency may only contact you to tell you that they will stop their collection efforts or to inform you that they are no longer trying to collect the debt or that they are taking legal action against you.
