Recently, together with our colleagues from Connolly Wells & Gray, LLP, attorneys from Kalikhman & Rayz, LLC initiated a class action against Berks Credit and Collections – a Pennsylvania-based debt collector. As detailed in the complaint, which was filed in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania, Berks Credit and Collections improperly disclosed consumers’ personal identifying information on the face of the envelopes used for collection notices. This practice is unlawful under the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, 15 U.S.C. § 1692 et seq., as declared by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit in Douglass, et al. v. Convergent Outsourcing, 765 F.3d 299 (3rd Cir. 2014).
