Stop Pentagroup Financial Collection Agency Calls
Pentagroup Financial debt collectors call, you should know your rights under the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act. If a debt collector – whether from Pentagroup or any other debt collection agency - starts calling third parties, he or she may or may not be violating the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act. For example, a Pentagroup debt collector can legally call a third party like a neighbor or a relative in an effort to locate you. In fact, a Pentagroup collector can use any pretext he likes. For example, a Pentagroup collector can represent himself as being an insurance company representative and say that he has an urgent message regarding a claim but the file has the wrong contact information. That's sneaky but it's not illegal.
However, a Pentagroup collector – or a collector from any other agency – cannot call the same person more than once unless Pentagroup Financial debt collectors have evidence that the person knowingly misled him or unless the third party invited a callback. A Pentagroup collector also cannot tell a third party that he is trying to locate you to collect a debt. When you receive a call from a Pentagroup collector, it’s always a good policy to note the date and time, as well as the name of the collector and what was said.
