Midland Credit Management
A collections agency is designed to retrieve funds owed. But the ways they attempt to accomplish this task can be legally nebulous. Without knowledge of the laws surrounding debt collections, consumers can fall victim to harassment and threats. The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) is a federal law designed to keep these institutions from delivering a constant and unwelcome barrage of text messages, phone calls, emails, and other communications. When consumers don’t want these endless notifications, they can file a cease-and-desist letter with the organization, which should prevent further contact.
However, if a company like Midland Credit Management persists in debt-related communications, a debtor may want to consider hiring an attorney. It can sometimes be difficult to narrow down whether Midland Credit Management was the source of debt collections. But if you were contacted by one of the following numbers, it was most likely this institution: 888-303-3005, 866-633-7945, 630-869-5654, 404-537-0502, 866-941-9695, 888-714-7202, 866-941-9695, 866-902-3451.
Central Credit Services
When a collections agency like Central Credit Services won’t stop calling, it’s important to know your rights. Tactics used to collect debt should be in compliance with the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA), a law established to ensure consumer rights. Constant phone calls, intimidating letters, and misleading information all qualify under this law as harassment or threat. Sometimes filing a cease-and-desist letter against Central Credit Services could get the organization to stop contacting you. But they also may simply ignore the correspondence, which means it might be time to hire a debt collections attorney.
Every time you receive communication from a debt collection agency it must identify itself. However, this requirement is often not fulfilled, leaving you with a mysterious phone number and a stressful encounter. Central Credit Services often uses a variety of phone numbers when it’s delivering collections notices. Please review the resources on our website for further information about this creditor.
Many consumers don’t know that when a debt collection agency won’t stop contacting them, they have options. If tactics used to contact the debtor are in violation of the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA), then it may be time to take legal action. Diversified Consultants is a debt collection agency that will attempt to coerce people into paying off debts with letters, phone calls, and reports to the credit bureaus. Sending a cease-and-desist letter to Diversified Consultants is a common solution to this communication onslaught.
However, sometimes even a cease-and-desist letter cannot abate the phone calls. Hiring a debt collections attorney could be an important next step in ensuring your rights. An attorney can also help you determine the source of the debt collections, because in some cases you may only have a phone number and some voicemails. The following numbers are just a few used by Diversified Consultants to contact consumers: 502-403-2216, 503-278-5045, 704-323-8648, 201-942-4126, 904-247-5500, 866-427-5359, 877-770-1039, 949-407-6010, 201-499-7970, 866-427-5359, 713-574-9056, 385-212-2121, 401-519-9130.
