Bad Faith Bill Collection Lawyers in St. Louis, MO
Under Illinois law, there is a statute of limitations on bill collection. After a certain amount of time going unpaid, you cannot be forced to pay, but if you make any payment at all to it your debt is "reactivated." Debt collectors try to trick you by offering a deal to pay off a small amount, only to sue you for the full amount the moment you have paid it.
Debt collection agencies use these kinds of underhanded tactics to defraud and harass people. We treat them the way they deserve to be treated. We hit back fast, and we hit back hard to get you results.
TCPA prevents telemarketers or debt collection companies from doing a number of things, including:
- Telemarketing companies have to offer robocall blocking to consumers.
- They can't leave pre-recorded messages or automated dialing systems.
- Consumers should not be called at unreasonable hours of the day.
- Companies have to keep an internal do-not-call registry.
- Text messages are considered on the same level of phone calls.
Each text or call can be worth up to $500 under TCPA if the telemarketer (or "caller") violated the rules. Don't hesitate to reach out to a law firm that specializes in dealing with these types of companies.
