Recently, together with our colleagues from Connolly Wells & Gray, LLP, attorneys from Kalikhman & Rayz, LLC initiated a class action against Van Ru Credit Corporation – a California-based debt collector. As detailed in the complaint, which was filed in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania, Van Ru 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).
Our firm is actively involved in investigation and prosecution of various “debt collection”-related claims, especially with regard student loans, mortgages, and medical billing practices. If you or anyone you know may have been victimized by nefarious employment practices, please do not hesitate to contact Kalikhman & Rayz, LLC.
