Know your rights debt collector harassment

The Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA), Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) and the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) are all in place to safeguard your rights. These federal laws impose limits on debt collectors regarding how it may communicate with you regarding payments in Florida or any other U.S. state. If a financial institution such as American Express violates these regulations, we may be able to sue them for compensation.

If you have been a victim of harassment, our lawyers will assist you in collecting all the necessary evidence to possibly file a case against Am Ex. We’re here to protect you against illegitimate claims, charges and fees and to save you from forcefully paying money you may not owe them.

Some of the violations a debt collector may commit are:

  • Call you with automated dialers or robocallers
  • Repeatedly call you during inappropriate hours (after 9:00 PM or before 8:00 AM)
  • Disclose your private information to other people
  • Make use of obscene language, threats or offensive behaviors
  • Ask you to pay an outstanding debt you’re not responsible of
  • Offer illegal or fraudulent solutions to wrap up your debt
  • Use deceptive or misleading strategies to communicate your debt
  • Damage your credit report without warning you
  • Request you to pay without presenting physical proof (documentation) of your debt

American Express reviews and opinions

According to many customers who publicly complained about American Express on the Internet, the reputation of this financial institute is blemished at best. Of 97 consumer reviews and opinions, 92 of them gave 1 star out of 5 to this credit card dealer.

Do I have a case against the AmEx?

It is not the first time that thousands of plaintiffs join their forces against American Express to protect their rights. In 2016, a large class action stemmed after the popular credit card dealer violated the TCPA by using prerecorded voices and auto-dialers to call consumers without their consent. AmEx eventually settled the litigation by paying $8.25 million.

Another settlement was reached that same year after the financial institution allegedly changed the interest on certain credit cards from fixed to variable. No client was adequately warned of this modification, which ended with clients paying higher interest rates than advertised. To wrap up the accusations, American Express eventually paid $6 million to plaintiffs.

A new class action was recently started in 2017 by Plaintiff Helen Harris. She argues that she has been harassed by constant calls at all hours of the day even if she did not have an account with the bank. If you have been a victim of any oppressive tactics to collect a debt, you are eligible for a financial reward. Our attorneys will provide a free and confidential legal consultation.
