BBB has seen a major increase in collection agencies
starting business in the Upstate New York area over the past several years. In
an effort to keep consumers informed about which collection agencies are
operating in accordance with federal and state law, we have asked for specific
information from all collection agencies located in our service area, including
proof of licensing, bonding, and or registration required by NY state or other
governments where the business is located, as well as proof of licensing
required by any state in which the business operates. This collection agency
has not responded to our requests. BBB advises consumers to be aware of their
rights in regard to collections. This includes New York States law prohibiting
any collection agency from collecting on Payday loans in the State of New York.
The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) outlines prohibited behavior
when attempting to collect a debt, and outlines specific rights for consumers.
There are penalties for agencies found in violation of the Act. BBB advises
consumers to become familiar with their rights under the Act, which can be
found at the Federal Trade Commissions Website at: ftc.gov
