Under the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, debt collectors are restricted from behaving inappropriately and abusing their consumers. However, that doesn’t always stop them. Many debt collectors are found to be harassing and threatening when they try to collect debts. Such actions, including contacting you at inappropriate hours, using foul language, and threatening arrest or legal action, are violations of your rights.
If you find that Pinnacle Financial Group has violated your rights, you have the right sue. You must file within one year of the violation. Keep records of all contact you’ve had with debt collectors. The consumer protection attorneys at Francis Mailman Soumilas, P.C. are ready to help you fight.

Rios v. Pinnacle Fin. Group, Inc.
2006 WL 2462899 (S.D.N.Y. Aug. 23, 2006). The print on the debt collection letter that directed the consumer to the validation notice on the reserve side was an adequate size font and in all capital letters. Therefore, the claim that the notice was misleading was dismissed.
