Founded in 1981 in Denver, Colorado, Account Brokers expanded its services to a second office in Fort Collins in 1989. The Better Business Bureau of Denver has given Account Brokers an F rating for failure to resolve or respond to complaints about the business, nearly all of which relate to collections and billing issues. The Fort Collins branch of Account Brokers fares slightly better with their local BBB branch, garnering an A- score for at least responding to complaints against the company. Once again, all of the complaints are under the billing and collections issues category.
Account Brokers also does business as Account Receivable Management Systems, Account Brokers Of Larimer, Accounts Receivable Management Systems Of Larimer County and Larimer County Credit Association.
Stop Account Brokers Harassment
If you have been contacted by Account Brokers either under that name or under one of the other names under which the company does business, you should be aware of one of the most important provisions of the FDCPA. The Fair Debt Collections Practices Act lays out rules for what debt collectors may say to you or other people, as well as what they must say to you when they are attempting to collect a delinquent account. If Account Brokers has violated any of these rules, you have grounds to bring a suit against them. Under the FDCPA, if it is determined that they’ve violated any of the provisions of this law, they’ll be ordered to pay you damages up to $1,000, as well as cover your legal fees.
Specifically, the FDCPA states that a debt collector may only contact third parties in an attempt to locate a consumer. When they do so, they must identify themselves by name and state that they are attempting to locate a person or confirm information they have about that person’s location. A debt collector may not tell the third party that you owe a debt or that they are attempting to collect a debt. They cannot contact any third party more than once unless they are asked to do so, or under very specific other circumstances.
In addition, a debt collector may not contact you at times they know to be inconvenient to you, including before 8 a.m. and after 9 p.m. or contact you at work after being told that you do not want to be contacted at work. They may not contact you after you have told them that you are represented by an attorney, or after you have told them in writing that you refuse to pay the debt or that you want them to stop contacting you about the debt. Finally, they may not use abusive or obscene language or engage in practices that would be seen as harassment or abuse by a reasonable person.
If you are being harassed by bill collectors, you can make them stop by sending them a letter telling them that you do not want them to communicate with you further about this debt. Be aware that this will not necessarily stop them from using other means to collect a debt you owe, including through court action. It will, however, stop them from calling you and harassing you on the telephone or by mail.
