Remit Corporation is a debt collection agency that specializes in medical and commercial collections, and operates out of Bloomberg, Pennsylvania. It also buys old debts from other collection agencies and first-party creditors, so if you get a call from them, it may be about a very old debt. Its subsidiary, Interact Training and Development, teaches people how to collect debts. They use the typical tactics: skip tracing, legal remedies, and when a consumer can’t or won’t pay, they report it to the credit bureaus and put a ding on the consumer’s credit report. They work with a nationwide network of attorneys, so they are able to take you to court no matter which state you live in.
On the consumer complaint boards, one woman alleges that someone from Remit Corporation frequently calls her asking for a person she doesn’t know. She says that she has tried to explain to them that she’s had the number for many years, and the person that they’re looking for isn’t at that number. In response, they insist that the person does live there, and are rude to her, and have even made threats against her personally, and against her property. The woman says that one debt collector from Remit Corporation threatened to come to her house, kick down the door and repossess items that were bought by the consumer she doesn’t even know.
Stop Remit Corporation Harassment
The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act was enacted by Congress in an attempt to stop debt collectors from crossing the line when trying to collect from a consumer. Debt collection agencies aren’t allowed to simply do whatever they deem necessary to make a consumer pay up.
For instance, they aren’t allowed to threaten, bully or harass a consumer into paying, and if they do, they’re in violation of the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act and open to a lawsuit.
In addition, they aren’t allowed to use the telephone to harass you. Continually calling someone who has nothing to do with a debt is wrong, but the Act allows consumers a way out. You can send them a cease and desist letter, telling them that you no longer wish to communicate with them, and they have to stop all attempts. If the debt is valid, this won’t stop the collection efforts, but it will give you relief from constant calls and letters.
If you feel that your rights have been trampled on by a debt collection agency, talk to an attorney about filing suit against them. If you win, a judge can make them pay you up to $1,000 in damages, plus attorney’s fees and court costs.
