If you have been receiving debt collection calls from Applied Bank, you could have a case for creditor harassment if their conduct violates the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) or other debt collection laws. Applied Bank collects debts and mortgage debts for other creditors. If Applied Bank calls you or sends you a monthly statement in an attempt to collect the debt, their conduct is governed by the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act and the Florida Consumer Collection Practices Act (FCCPA).
Once you hire an attorney for representation regarding your debt owed to and collected by Applied Bank and provide Applied Bank your attorney contact information, Applied Bank is no longer allowed to contact you in an attempt to collect the debt. Applied Bank is prohibited from calling you in an attempt to collect the debt. Applied Bank is prohibited from sending you monthly statements in an attempt to collect the debt. Applied Bank also cannot call your cellular telephone using an automatic telephone dialing system once you have told them you have hired an attorney or plan on filing bankruptcy. The automatically dialed telephone calls, called "robo-calls", invade your privacy and could violate the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA). The TCPA provides for $500.00 damages per call placed in violation of the TCPA and up to $1,500.00 per call if the call was knowingly made in violation of the TCPA. These auto-dialed cases can be very valuable to you if you take good notes on calls and let your creditor, Applied Bank, know that you have hired an attorney for representation and provide our attorney contact information.
