Stokes & Clinton
Stokes & Clinton is a debt collection agency that operates out of a law firm in Mobile, Alabama. They collect for various industries, including old medical debt, phone bills and retail industries.
The Better Business Bureau has assigned an F rating to Stokes & Clinton. According to the Bureau’s website, that’s partially because the debt collection agency has failed to respond to two complaints filed against them.
One of the most common complaints you find about Stokes & Clinton on the online chat boards is that they allegedly call people who don’t even owe a debt. One person complained that every time the debt collection company calls him in error, it costs him ten cents. That doesn’t sound like a lot, but one month his total bill from the erroneous calls was $23.50. He says that he’s asks them to stop calling because he doesn’t even know the person they’re calling for, but the calls continue to come in, costing him money.
Another woman alleges that they call her husband about a bill that her insurance company paid for seven years ago. Finally, one soldier reports that he lost his security classification and is at risk of being demoted because Stokes & Clinton took money for a payment, but won’t clear up the matter with the credit bureau.
Stop Stokes & Clinton Harassment
The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act was designed to protect consumers from shady debt collection tactics. For instance, if you’re being hounded by a collection agent by the telephone, you have the right to ask them to stop calling you. You’ll need to send them a cease and desist letter, telling them that you no longer wish to be contacted. You should send the letter certified mail with return receipt requested so that there will be no question that they received it. If they continue to call you, contact a fair debt attorney and ask them about taking the debt collector to court for violations of the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act.
It’s important that you keep copies of all communications with the debt collector, and if you speak to them by phone, record the conversations. Not all states allow you to do this, so be sure that you check with the authorities first. If you have to go to court to get a debt collector to follow the law, you’ll have a better chance of winning if you’ve got the documentation to back up your claims.
