Can you help me file a No Fee Lawsuit against Prince-Parker & Associates Inc – PPA?
Absolutely. Here are some Sample Cases against Prince-Parker & Associates Inc
Complaints against Prince Parker & Associates frequently cite allegations of rude, hostile, and uncooperative conduct by PPA representatives. In October 2017, a complainant indicated she had been contacted by a PPA representative who was “rude and aggressive.” The complainant indicated she had received a collection notice for a bill she had already paid. After contacting PPA, she was instructed to email a copy of the cancelled check proving payment of the bill. She complied with the request, but did not receive a reply. She sent the same information again and was subsequently contacted by phone by a PPA representative. The complainant expected an apology from the Prince Parker & Associates representative, but instead she reports that she was interrupted, and the PPA representative “banged the phone around, yelled at [her], and finally hung up on [her].” The complainant called back twice with no resolution, so she sent a written request for verification that that the bill had been paid. In response, PPA indicated that they could not discuss details of the complaint in a public forum, citing potential violations of the Health Information Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA). PPA further insisted that the complainant had been the party to raise her voice, not the PPA representative. They concluded by confirming that they had sent a letter indicating the account was paid in full.
In November 2015, a complainant indicated that a PPA representative had been contacting her mother-in-law about an outstanding bill. The complainant indicated that the PPA representative was “rude and impertinent.” The complainant indicated that she had not received the final bill, but that if Prince Parker & Associates sent her a notice, she would be happy to pay it. The PPA representative indicated she would send the bill and that there would be no further calls to her mother-in-law’s number. The next day, the complainant’s mother-in-law allegedly received another call from PPA that was harsher and more rude and threatening than the previous call. In addition, although the complainant indicated she had provided PPA with the correct contact number, Prince-Parker & Associates continued calling her mother-in-law. These tactics were cited as violations of the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA). In response, Prince-Parker & Associates indicated that they had been given the contact numbers by the creditor and were under no obligation to verify them. They claimed not to have made any calls after initially being requested to cease phone contact. They directed the complainant to contact them directly to discuss the matter further.

Prince Parker & Associates PPA Calling You?
Federal laws protect you. The Fair Debt Collections Practices Act (FDCPA) regulates the behavior of collection agencies by prohibiting actions such as the use of abusive or threatening language; harassment; or the use of false or misleading information to collect a debt. The FCRA regulates how collection agencies and creditors report delinquent debts to credit reporting agencies. Additional consumer protection laws include the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA) and the Consumer Financial Protection Act (CFPA).
But here’s the rub: If you want to enforce your rights, or recover money for violations — you need to sue. These laws provide individuals like you with a means to seek monetary damages in court. For example, the FDCPA allows consumers who have been violated to recover damages of up to $1,000, plus attorney fees and court costs.
