All About Portfolio Recovery, LLC

Portfolio Recovery Associates is a high volume debt collector located at 120 Corporate Boulevard, Norfolk, Virginia 23502. It is a publicly-traded corporation, incorporated in Delaware. Portfolio Recovery Associates, Inc (NASDAQ:PRAA) is engaged in the detection, collection and processing of both unpaid and normal-course accounts receivable originally owed to credit grantors, governments, retailers and others.

Many consumers have sued Portfolio Recovery Associates, LLC for its unfair and abusive debt collection tactics including  a recent federal court case n which a consumer accused Portfolio Recovery Associates, LLC of violating the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act because of its pattern of making harassing phone calls to collect a debt as well as making false threats to sue on old debt. See Swearingen v. Portfolio Recovery Associates, LLC., 2012 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 136434 (N.D. Ill., 2012)

In yet another federal court case, the misleading and deceptive practices alleged against Portfolio Recovery Associates included its failure to notify the victimized consumer of her right to dispute the debt and its failure to permit her adequate time to request verification. See Tarrant v. Portfolio Recovery Assocs. LLC, 2011 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 123563 (M.D. Tenn. Oct. 24, 2011).

In as least one case, Portfolio Recovery Associates was accused of initiating a collection lawsuit against a consumer with “knowledge that it lacked any documentation” that the debt was actually owed, a clear violation of the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA). See Basile v. Blatt, Hasenmiller, Leibsker & Moore LLC, 632 F.Supp.2d 842 (N.D. Ill. 2009).

A deceptive-practices lawsuit against Pressler & Pressler, New Jersey’s largest collections firm, is moving forward as a class action.

U.S. District Judge Katharine Hayden in Newark certified a class of individuals who allege misrepresentations in a form letter they received from the debt-collecting firm.

The form letter in question offered to settle and said once that was done, proof that the debt was paid would be sent to the court and “to you so that you can advise the credit bureau.” Attorneys in the matter say that they believe Pressler never actually reported the supposed delinquencies to any credit bureau.

The attorneys for the class consumers are asserting that two misrepresentations were made by the debt collector law firm: the implication in the letter that the collector had reported the debt on the recipient’s credit report, and a misleading statement that settling the debt would help improve the credit reports.

the Class Action law is entitled Williams v. Pressler & Pressler and consists of 75 members of the class of consumers who are suing, alleging they were sued for credit-card debt by New Century Financial Services. New Century purchases delinquent accounts and is closely affiliated with the law firm.

If you are contacted by Portfolio Recovery Associates, LLC  be sure to recall this third party debt buyer probably bought the claim for pennies on a dollar to make a profit off your back and must, upon demand for verification, provide information as to  the original amount allegedly owed and the date on which the debt accrued as well as proof that the debt was in fact verified with the original creditor.

When Portfolio Recovery, or another third party debt collectors, either sues you or harasses you or victimizes you with its unfair collection practices, contact us right away and we will provide you with information without charge and, upon the establishment of an attorney client relationship with our attorneys, come to your defense immediately.
