New York Attorney General Andrew Cuomo Investigating Debt Collection Firms

New York Attorney General Andrew Cuomo announced this week that he is expanding his probe into twenty bill collection and debt collection firms for abusive or deceptive debt collection practices. Cuomo's office shut down two of Lamont Cooper's firms, called Emanee Development, Inc. and Dial Tech LLC. Allegedly, the firms violated the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act.

The Attorney General's Office plans to look into collection practices and how bill collection and debt collection firms deal with complaints. The Attorney General's goal is to stop the harassing phone calls, frivolous lawsuit threats made by the bill collectors or debt collectors, and any other violations of the law.

If you are being harassed by bill collectors or debt collectors, contact us.
