About PN Financial Inc. - Debt Collectors?

PN Financial is a debt collection company based out of Skokie, Illinois with an office in Lincolnwood.  They are one of most egregious violators of the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act in the state of Illinois.  In January 2012, the Attorney General of Illinois has filed suit against PN Financial Inc. in Cook County Circuit Court.  The complaints against them are numerous.  They contact family and friends to discuss the consumer's debt.  Additionally, they send out letters that make it look as if a lawsuit has been filed including fake case numbers. 

Is PNC Financial Calling and Harassing You?

Be careful if you receive a letter with a court case number saying that you have been sued for failing to pay a debt.  PN Financial may call your family or employer to discuss your debt.  They might even pretend they are a law firm and scare consumers with fake court case letters or letters that falsely represent they have been sued for failure to pay a debt.

The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act was enacted to protect consumers from unfair, deceptive and harassing debt collection practices.  Under this law, a collector can not use deceptive means to collect debt like pretending that you are being sued.  Also, a debt collector can make a call to a family member, friend, relative, or neighbor in order to seek your location information only.   They may not, however, disclose that you owe a debt to anyone at any time.    If a debt collector is using these tactics, you have rights and can recover any damages you may have suffered as well as a statutory damage of up to $1,000.
