Is Controlled Credit Corporation a Scam?

Because of the company’s years of experience and their professional accreditation and awards, consumers should be cautious in ignoring Controlled Credit Corporation’s allegations of debt owed.

These memberships include: ACA International, Central Ohio Patient Account Managers, Ohio Receivables Management Association, HFMA, Cincinnati USA Regional Chamber, BBB Accreditation, and more. This collections company explains that alongside their 50+ years of experience, they have served as the sole external collector for one of the Nation’s most reputable hospitals for over 30 years, and maintains an employee base with “professional, dedicated, and experienced staff” who on average have served the company for 20 years. Though Controlled Credit Corporation promises to be a professional and reputable business, the collections company may still have violated the FDCPA.

Who does Controlled Credit Corporation collect for?
According to their website, Controlled Credit Corporation collects on behalf of creditors in the medical sector. In fact, the collections company writes that the company’s solitary focus throughout its years in business has been on medical debt recovery. More specifically, the collections company explains, “Not only do we have thorough knowledge of the current healthcare industry and the laws governing it, we are highly flexible and adjust quickly to its ever-changing dynamics.” Though this collection company only collects on medical debt, it is still necessary that you verify your account with Controlled Credit Corporation themselves. This step in the collections process is crucial because due to the outsourcing of debt, one collection account can turn into many reporting on your credit file if the debt is not properly dealt with.

Can Controlled Credit Corporation Sue Me or Garnish My Wages?
Debt collectors may try to induce payment by threatening to sue you or garnish your wages. Using empty threats of legal action to intimidate consumers into payment is prohibited under the FDCPA. Likewise, collection agencies are highly unlikely to sue for debts which you cannot be verified to owe. However, it should be noted that debt collection agencies can garnish wages through legitimate legal action if a judgement rules in their favor. Above all, we strongly advise you to contact an attorney BEFORE such a judgement would be possible. Here at Lemberg Law, we have advocated for tens of thousands of victims of debt collector harassment. Contact us to see if you may have a case.
A complainant explains that Controlled Credit Corporation is allegedly billing them for a medical bill that the consumer claims they already paid off. In fact, the complainant explains that this bill was previously paid to Controlled Credit Corporation’s client prior to it being placed in collections with the company. Later, in dealing with this discrepancy, the complainant provided the collections company with the check number as well as the amount and the date. Additionally, the complainant notes that the client of Controlled Credit Corporation received this payment as the date it was presented it was honored by their bank.
Next, even after sending this evidence and verification of payment, the complainant still received notices stating that the amount is not paid. The collections company claimed that they would contact the client in order to resolve the matter, but after an entire month the complainant received yet another notice for the alleged bill. Moreover, the collections company did not provide the complainant with any supporting documents, and provides no email, fax or address that these documents should be sent to.
Controlled Credit Corporation Calling You?
If you have fallen victim to excessive, threatening, misleading or otherwise untimely calls from a third party debt collector, you are entitled to compensation under The Fair Debt Collections Practices Act (FDCPA). More specifically, this law prohibits collection agencies from pursuing debts via over-the-phone harassment. If you feel as though this law should be applied in your collection discrepancy, contact an attorney to sue the offending collection agency. Likewise, the FCRA regulates the circumstances under and means by which collectors and creditors can report delinquent debts to credit reporting agencies.
Can I sue Controlled Credit Corporation for harassment?
Yes. You can absolutely sue. Oftentimes suing is the best course of action considering your case is legitimate and your grievances are serious. Ultimately, Federal Law allows you to protect your FDCPA rights in court via lawsuit. Take advantage of your rights and choose to sue when you find that a collections company violated collectors law. Consequently, if action is taken, you can recover damages of up to $1,000, plus attorney fees, court costs, and personal damages.
