Focus Receivables Management
Focus Receivables Management is a collection agency that has offices in both Georgia and New Mexico, and has been open since 2001. Focus Receivables Management’s skimpy website doesn’t provide much information about the company, but it does stress that they hire “motivated” employees—aka debt collection agents—who will go the extra mile to make their clients happy. Focus Receivables Management’s motto is “Taking Care of Business First.”
Focus Receivables Management Complaints
As of March 2013, the Better Business Bureau gave Focus Receivables Management an A+ rating, even though the BBB had logged 135 closed Focus Receivables Management Complaints over the previous three years, including 38 closed Receivables Management Complaints over the previous 12 months. Out of the 135 complaints, fully 121 were regarding billing and collection issues. In addition, in the first three months of 2013, Focus Receivables Management had been named as a defendant in seven cases filed in federal court alleging violations of the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act.
Stop Focus Receivables Management Harassment
According to the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA), a debt collector cannot abuse or harass a consumer in their quest to try and collect a debt. They cannot call you outside of the hours of 8:00 A.M. and 9:00 P.M.—in your time zone, not theirs. Debt collectors are not allowed to discuss the debt with a third party. They can call third parties in order to obtain location information, but if they call your friends and family more than once—unless invited to—or reveal that they are calling in conjunction with a debt, they are in violation of the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act.
Even if you owe the debt, you have a right to be treated with respect and dignity. If a debt collection agency is harassing you, or violating the FDCPA in any other way, you should contact an attorney who is familiar with debt collection laws. If he can prove in court that agency has violated your rights, you may be entitled to up to $1000 in damages, along with court costs and attorney fees.
