Is Portfolio Recovery Associates Harassing you?
When a consumer sends a letter to a debt collector advising that all communications must cease and desist, a debt collector cannot continue to call to attempt collections of that debt.   When a collector communicates with you, they cannot misrepresent the amount you owe or tack on amounts to the balance that were not part of the original deal with the creditor.   Debt collection harassment and abuse is a violation of the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act.  Portfolio Recovery Associates has endured a number of lawsuits with allegations such as these.
