Bohemia, NY (PRWEB) September 19, 2012
On September 19th, Rapid Recovery Solution, a collection agency, reacts to an article published for The Huffington Post about a family and their complaints against abusive collection tactics that have left them distraught.
According to the article, Benjamin and Cynthia Washington claim that they were called as often as 14 times each day for three months by debt collectors regarding a mortgage contract on their house. The article states, “The Washingtons' complaint says that HSBC's collectors threatened them with foreclosure, and that on at least six separate occasions, representatives of HSBC actually showed up in their neighborhood -- either to speak with one of the Washingtons, to leave a note on the front door saying to call the bank. At times, the complaint alleges, collectors would stand ‘just outside of the property line’ and take pictures of the house, where Benjamin and Cynthia live with their four children.”
The Huffington Post reports that Troy Doucet, employee for the law firm handling the Washington case, “The Washingtons’ complaint alleges that their original lender was a company called MorEquity Inc., and that they were working with an unnamed third party to settle their debt.” The article states that while the Washingtons’ reported this to the HSBC collectors, the harassing phone calls continued. According to John Monderine, CEO for the collection agency Rapid Recovery Solution, "This is a case of first party agencies abusing people who owe them money but the 3rd party agencies getting the blame. Unfortunately, FDCPA does not cover 1st party agencies."
The article states that within the last few years consumer complaints against debt collectors have risen and “the rise in debt-collector ugliness is believed to be linked to the growing number of home-based collection agencies, a tech-enabled boom that’s made the field more competitive.”
