  • Woman Alleges Midland Funding And Eaton Group Attorneys Sent Misleading Letter
    Samuel J. Ford filed a successful class action based on an unfair and deceptive collection letter sent by debt collectors in Louisiana.

  • The Equifax data breach reportedly impacts roughly 143 million U.S. consumers. New information continues to develop including reports of previous alleged breaches. The information accessed included names, Social Security numbers, birth dates, addresses, driver’s license numbers, credit card numbers, and other personally identifying information.
    Unfortunately, data breaches and identity theft are a part of modern life, and the Equifax breach is just one example. In light of the breach, it is important for consumers to be aware of their rights and options for credit protection. Some recommended steps to protect your identity include ordering an annual free credit report each year from http://www.annualcreditreport.com/ (or calling 877-322-8228), regularly monitoring your bank accounts and credit card statements, and taking note when companies with which you do not have a relationship call you. These simple steps can help you recognize and counteract fraud in an efficient manner.
    Federal law provides injured consumer a right to monetary relief, which may include legal costs and attorney’s fees. If you notice improper items on your credit report, improper charges on your credit accounts, and calls from unknown companies, you may have a claim for monetary damages against the offending company.
    Under the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA), you have the right to dispute any improper account on your credit report with the credit bureaus and the furnisher of the account. Often, a dispute is ineffective and consumers become frustrated and give up, but you should persevere. The FCRA provides a right of action for consumers when the bureaus and account furnisher do not properly respond to a credit dispute. In addition to removal of the improper account, the consumer may be entitled to monetary damages, legal costs, and the consumer’s attorney’s fees. Thus, an attorney, such as those with Scott, Vicknair, Hair & Checki, LLC, can provide representation at no cost to the consumer. But don’t stop there! Identity theft and data breaches can also lower your credit score by causing creditors to perform a credit analysis on you without your consent. Luckily, the FCRA provides relief for this as well, so investigate what companies have pulled your credit report.
    If you are receiving calls from unknown companies claiming you have an account with them or owe them money, you may have a claim under the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA) or Fair Debt Collection Practices act (FDCPA). In short, the TCPA provides damages on a per call basis when a company calls a consumer’s cellular telephone, without their consent, using an automatic dialing system or a prerecorded/artificial message. The consumer may be entitled to $500 per call!
    The FDCPA protects consumers from a breadth of unfair and harassing collection practices. The FDCPA allows the consumer to recover damages, costs, and their attorney’s fees.
