If you are dealing with debt, you are likely too overwhelmed to consider handling anything else that might come your way. Unfortunately, collection agencies that harass indebted consumers can make your situation much worse. Credit Acceptance is one such agency that has violated the rights consumers are entitled to and even filed deceitful lawsuits. Don’t wait to retain my firm if you believe Credit Acceptance is acting illegally or engaging in abusive practices against you.

Call (888) 258-0651 today to speak with a Michigan bankruptcy lawyer about your situation.

Violating the Fair Debt Collection Practice Act

All collection agencies are expected to abide by certain laws when they engage with consumers. These laws determine how and when a debt collector can contact someone with alleged debt, as well as the processes they much follow when attempting to collect the unpaid debt. Violations are considered illegal and Credit Acceptance has been penalized for committing unlawful behavior according to the Fair Debt Collection Practice Act (FDCPA).

The FDCPA prevents collection agencies from doing any of the following:

  • Contacting debtors before 8 AM and after 9 PM
  • Contacting the debtor directly when they are represented by an attorney
  • Pretending to be someone they’re not
  • Using abusive or profane language toward the debtor
  • Lying about an association they have with the government
  • Repeatedly contacting the debtor as a form of harassment
  • Including dishonest information on the debtor’s credit report

Numerous reports have surfaced regarding the ways Credit Acceptance has tried to scam countless consumers, so know that you are not alone. Refrain from agreeing to anything you’re presented with by Credit Acceptance until you speak with an attorney.

Client Testimonials

  • Tom Hensel is definitely the right attorney to call!

    “I was referred to Tom Hensel by a friend. My first impression was not only was Tom professional but he's so kind and caring too. He helped my husband and I through an embarrassing, scary situation and definitely made it more positive one. He guided us through our options and helped us make the right decision for us which ended up being a chapter 7 bankruptcy. Tom was so knowledgeable and helped us throughout the whole process. He never once made us feel uncomfortable or dumb when we had questions. He was also very easy to get a hold of when questions would come up and would always return our calls and emails promptly. I strongly recommend Tom to anyone going through this kind of financial nightmare. Do yourselves a favor and call him right away. He will help you get on the right path again. Our only mistake was waiting so long to call him!! When we in court waiting our turn all the other attorneys referred to their clients as "The debtors" Tom on the other hand acknowledged us by our names. Little things mean a lot and that left a lasting impression with us. Tom Thank You again for all your help!!”

  • Sincerest thanks for all of your help in affording me what I consider a real "fresh start."

    “I wanted to give you my sincerest thanks for all of your help in affording me what I consider a real "fresh start". My divorce was unfortunate but definitely a needed change for the better. However, the financial side of things still seemed to keep that past linked, which makes this an enormous weight lifted. I just can't believe the impact it's made on my outlook with...everything.I will be sure to keep your business cards handy to distribute along with highly favorable words of recommendation should the needs arise.Thank you again for your time and professional guidance.”

  • Professional, competent, empathetic attorney.

    “My husband and I were forced into a position to file for Chapter 7 bankruptcy. We were devastated and mortified that we had to choose that route, but Tom eased our stress about the filing and court hearing process, as he thoroughly explained what Chapter 7 entails, as well as exactly what to expect during and after the filing process; he was accurate on each point that he advised us on. Tom also kept in frequent contact with us and responded quickly to any questions or concerns that we had while we worked with him. Tom's expertise and tact was invaluable for us, and we will absolutely recommend him to any of our friends and relatives that may find themselves in similar positions to ours. Thank you, Tom, for your dedicated help during this process.”
