Lawsuit Filed Against Sentry Recovery & Collections
Wednesday, October 3rd, 2012 at 5:00 am
On behalf of our client, Lemberg & Associates recently filed a complaint in U.S. District Court, District of Nevada, against Sentry Recovery & Collections. Our client alleges that Sentry Recovery & Collections contacted him about a $350 debt, and that he requested a written collection notice. Sentry Recovery & Collections told him it wasnt required to send a letter, and that if he wanted a letter, he had to request one in writing via certified mail. Sentry Recovery & Collections told him that, if he sent such a letter, it would put the debt on our clients credit report. Our client alleges that Sentry Recovery & Collections threatened to ruin his credit if he didnt pay immediately. The debt collector from Sentry Recovery & Collections also mocked our client.
The lawsuit charges that Sentry Recovery & Collections violated the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) by engaging in harassing behavior; by using false, deceptive, or misleading representation in connection with the collection of a debt; by employing false and deceptive means to collect a debt; and by failing to send a letter within five days of initial contact. It also charges Sentry Recovery & Collections with harassment.

On behalf of our client, Lemberg & Associates recently filed a complaint in U.S. District Court, District of Nevada, against Sentry Recovery & Collections. Our client alleges that the Sentry Recovery & Collections called her and failed to inform her that the call was an attempt to collect a debt. She also alleges that Sentry Recovery & Collections called her workplace numerous times, even though each time she told Sentry Recovery & Collections that the calls were inconvenient and against her employers policy. She also asked that Sentry Recovery & Collections cease all communication with her. Our client alleges that Sentry Recovery & Collections continued to call her at work, forcing our clients supervisor to call Sentry Recovery & Collections and tell them that their actions were placing our clients job in jeopardy. In addition, Sentry Recovery & Collections tried to bully our client into paying the debt, and never sent her the required written notification.
The lawsuit charges that Sentry Recovery & Collections violated the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) by contacting our client at a place and time known to be inconvenient; by contacting our client as her workplace, knowing that her employer prohibited such calls; by engaging in harassing behavior; by not disclosing the identity of the debt collection agency during a call; by failing to inform our client that the phone call was an attempt to collect a debt; and by failing to send a validation notice. The lawsuit also charges that Sentry Recovery & Collections harassed our client.
Don't be intimidated by illegal debt collection practices.
