How to Fight Illegal Collection Efforts on Unpaid Debt
Our firm strongly believes that any unethical or illegal collection efforts, creditor harassment and violations of consumers' rights must be dealt with harshly, regardless of whether it is a bank or other third-party collector. In the past, banks have not been subjected to the same rules and regulations to which third-party collection agencies are bound under the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA). A recently policy change will apparently allow federal regulators to now hold banks and other creditors, who do their own collections, to the same standards as third-party collection agencies.
Key Bank is one of a few banks known for being extremely active in its pursuit of unpaid student loans and other consumer loans, even after the borrower has passed away. Federally-backed student loans are always forgiven upon the death of a student. The same does not necessarily hold true of private student loans secured through banks or other big name lenders.
If you are being pressured by Key Bank or another lender to repay astudent loan debtfor training you never actually received, or you need help defending yourself against unethical collection efforts, you may have grounds to file a lawsuit against the offending lender.
