Refund checks sent to victims of abusive debt collector
The Federal Trade Commission has announced that it is sending checks to 603 people who paid money they did not owe to a debt collector that used deceptive and abusive collection methods.
In 2018, the FTC and State of New York alleged that Campbell Capital, LLC and its owner Robert Heidenreich, along with a number of other related companies, collected payments on debts from consumers that exceeded the amounts they allegedly owed. The defendants in the case were able to collect these funds by allegedly using tactics such as threatening that consumers would be arrested or served with legal papers at work if they did not make payments immediately. In some cases, according to the suit filed by the FTC and New York, the collectors pretended to be sheriff’s office employees or process servers when making such threats in phone calls with consumers.
