Agruss Law Firm, LLC, Helps Consumers Harassed by Viking Collection Services
Viking Collection Services is a privately held collection agency that has been in business for over 40 years. Viking Collection Services is licensed to collect debt in all 50 states. Viking Collection Services has offices in Minneapolis, Minnesota, and Phoenix, Arizona. Viking Collection Services’s clients include large, regional, and community banks, as wells as insurance companies and debt buyers. However, over the last 20 years, Viking Collection Services has focused on the credit card collection industry. Viking Collection Services recently ranked as the 37th largest consumer collection agency by Collections and Credit Risk monthly magazine. Viking Collection Services is affiliated with the Association of Credit and Collection Professionals, the Better Business Bureau of Minnesota, the National Association of Subrogation Professionals, and the American Collection Association.
Viking Collection Services’s track record of complying with the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act is not as bad as some other collection agencies. The FDCPA has been around for almost 35 years. The FDCPA is a federal law that applies to every state. In other words, everyone is protected by the FDCPA. The FDCPA is essentially a laundry list of what debt collectors can and cannot do while collecting a debt, as well as things debt collectors must do while collecting a debt.
According to the Public Access to Court Electronic Records (PACER), Viking Collection Services has been sued 70 times in the last 3 years for debt collection harassment. The Better Business Bureau has processed 25 billing/collection issues regarding Viking Collection Services in the last three years. Although PACER and the Better Business Bureau do not shed a bad light on Viking Collection Services’s collection activities, Viking Collection Services does have a history of leaving voicemail messages that do not comply with the FDCPA. Under the FDCPA, when leaving a voicemail message for a consumer, Viking Collection Services must identify the company’s name and state that the message is from a debt collector.
Viking Collection Services has several telephone numbers it places debt collection calls from. Viking Collection Services may be calling you from the following telephone numbers: 952-944-7575, 800-637-4564, 651-621-2838, 800-316-9544, 866-377-5362, 800-818-4937, 800-477-8308, 800-955-0262, 800-287-7494, 410-698-6985, and 866-280-8943.
If Viking Collection Services has harassed you over a debt, whether they called you excessively, threatened you, made misrepresentations when trying to collect old debts, called you at work, disclosed your debt to a third party, tried to collect a debt from you that you did not owe, or left you a voicemail message without the proper disclosures, contact Agruss Law Firm, LLC, for a free case evaluation.
