Stop The Harassment!
A federal judge held Ocwen must comply with the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act ("FDCPA"). Zervos v. Ocwen Loan Servicing, LLC, 2012 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 44869 (D. MD 2012).
A husband and wife brought a lawsuit against Ocwen Loan Servicing falsely stating their home had been foreclosed on when it had not. Ocwen is a debt buyer that had bought the couple's mortgage loan from the original mortgage creditor. The couple claimed, in part, that Ocwen violated the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act- a federal law that governs how collection agencies are allowed to collect debts (and also covers those collection agencies attempting to collect debts here in California). The FDCPA provide consumers powerful rights to fight back against abusive debt collectors, without having to file bankruptcy. Ocwen tried to get the case thrown out, arguing that the company is not a debt collector under federal law, and that they don't need to abide by the FDCPA. The federal court disagreed with Ocwen and refused to throw the case out.
