Debt Relief Lawyers in New York Protecting the Consumer

FIA Card Services & Lawsuits
In early 2015, the Department of the Treasury fined Bank of America and FIA Card Services $30 million for engaging in illegal business behaviors. Some of the accusations included filing nonnotarized affidavits, providing no oversight or management for attorneys they used to handle debt collections, and directly violating the Servicemembers Civil Relief Act. Although this incident might be isolated and only stem from the actions of a few members of the companies, it does showcase the fact that FIA Card Services, and any large credit card company, are capable of overstepping their legal boundaries for profit.
Your Rights Under the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act
No matter the size of the business or the amount of debt that you owe, the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) offers you certain legal protections, as well as curbing the behavior of the companies pursuing you for collections. Violations of this act should not be allowed to go unnoticed and unpunished. When you work with our New York debt relief attorneys, we can help you file a case against those who may have done you wrong. Not only will you be defending yourself, but you will also be helping possibly countless others who would have been mistreated by FIA Card Services had you not brought their practices to the attention of the court.
