Cavalry Portfolio Services, LLC Complaints
Most collection agencies have numerous complaints filed against them with the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) and the Better Business Bureau (BBB). Most complaints are about inaccurate reporting, harassment, or failure to verify a debt. If you find yourself facing any of these situations with a debt collector, you should also consider filing a complaint.
You have many consumer rights under the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) and the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA). Lexington Law knows that you have rights and Cavalry Portfolio Services does too.
Have you been contacted by Cavalry claiming that you owe them money?
Cavalry Portfolio Services purchases debt from credit card companies, payday loan companies, car title loan companies, auto finance companies, utility companies, and telecommunication companies.
If you’ve had significant outstanding debt from any of these types of creditors, they may have sold off your account to a debt collection agency like Cavalry.
Once a debt collector owns your debt, they report it to the credit reporting agencies. They’ll also likely start calling you and sending you aggressive collections letters. They may even threaten to sue you, which can lead to serious legal proceedings.
Your Rights Under the FDCPA
It’s important that you know your rights under the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act and your state’s statute of limitations.
The FDCPA provides for a number of consumer rights and you can report any agency, including Cavalry, that doesn’t abide by the law.
They may not harass or abuse you, provide any false or misleading representation, or use unfair practices. That means they can’t call you outside of certain hours or act like they’re going to sue you when they really have no intention of doing so.
Familiarize yourself with the law so that you can recognize when you’re being taken advantage of. Debt collection agencies like Cavalry are counting on your ignorance so they can get away with more. Don’t let them!
How to Deal with Cavalry Portfolio Services
There are a number of ways to deal with Cavalry. If you have a reason to believe that the debt is expired and you are being contacted about an old account, send them an Expired SOL Notification letter.
This lets them know that they are dealing with an informed consumer and that threatening to sue you for the money owed won’t work. It may help ease them off your back for a while.
If the debt has not expired and you believe that you do indeed owe Cavalry money, you should first ask for debt validation. You can do so by sending them a debt validation letter. In the event they refuse to validate the debt, you have to seek legal recourse through the State Attorney General.
If you have sent a debt validation letter and Cavalry Portfolio Services continues to contact you about the debt before they respond to the verification request, it is a clear sign they are violating the law.
Cavalry Portfolio Services likely isn’t going to listen unless you bring government authorities into the mix. In addition to your state’s attorney general, you can also report them to the FTC.
