Unlicensed Collection Class Action
On August 14, 2019, Law360 reported that Kevin Abramowicz (formerly of BCJ Law; currently with East End Trial Group) filed a putative class action against a debt buyer that routinely sued Pennsylvania consumers.
The case alleged that the debt collector attempted to collect unlawful interest and fees from Pennsylvania consumers. Specifically, the putative class representatives alleged that the debt collector lacked the proper license to collect the interest and fees it sought to collect on certain consumer loans.
The named plaintiffs contended that the debt collector violated a federal law called the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (“FDCPA”). The putative class representatives sought to certify a class of other Pennsylvania consumers who were sued by the debt collector at issue in the case.
