U.S. Court of Appeals Upholds Decision that Debt Collection Agency Violated Law with Phone Calls

Elizabeth Lupia of Colorado Springs has won a case against a medical debt collection company. The Court ruled that this collection company, Medicredit, Inc. had violated consumer protection law because collection calls continued after she had specifically asked to stop receiving them. In Lupia’s case, the debt was also under dispute, and in cases like this, the law requires collection agencies to stop attempting to collect on debt until the issue has been settled. The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) protects consumers from abusive debt collection practices and helps them to maintain their right to privacy. This decision means that consumers have more space fight back against such intrusions.
