Transworld Systems is a corporation chartered under California law with offices at 507 Prudential Road, Horsham, Pennsylvania 19044. Transworld is the successor to NCO, which is also located at 507 Prudential Road, Horsham, Pennsylvania 19044 and has the same registered agent. Transworld Systems (and NCO before it) are collection agencies, and seek to collect defaulted consumer debts originally owed by others, using the mail, telephone and electronic wire services to do so, all in the general course of trade and commerce. Transworld / NCO manages “Agency and Attorney Networks,” which are described on its website (http://www.tsico.com/Services/Agency_Attorney_Network.html):
"Transworld Systems Inc. is expanding its existing Agency and Attorney Networks with current and new business opportunities. We are extremely proud of our Agency and Attorney Networks which designs and implements cost-effective collection solutions on behalf of clients across the country. We manage a nationwide network through leading-edge technology and the expertise needed to achieve results."
"We strive to surpass the growing and complex needs of our clients through the professional services provided by our Agency and Attorney Networks. TSI is currently seeking collection agencies and law firms to support our growing network and expanded business opportunities. TSI has a variety of business opportunities in which we are seeking professional, cost-conscious industry experts to join our Agency and Attorney Networks. The business opportunities contain, although not limited to, the following: healthcare, commercial, student loans, telecommunications, and bank card."
Transworld’s Agency and Attorney Networks are continuations of virtually identical networks set up by NCO previously. For example, the Form 10-K annual report filed by NCO’s parent company for 2010 said that NCO employees “coordinate and implement legal collection solutions undertaken on behalf of our clients through the management of nationwide legal resources specializing in collection litigation. Our collection support staff manages the attorney relationships and facilitates the transfer of necessary documentation.”
Transworld Systems uses at least one “Predictive Dialer” as defined by the Federal Communications Commission. Such “Predictive Dialers” were used by defendants to place calls without human intervention until a connection is made, in which case the dialers attempt to connect the recipient with a debt collector, or deliver an automated, prerecorded message. This permits collectors to make large numbers of automated calls, and attempt to predict when a live representative will be available to take the call.
Placing calls to cellular phones with predictive or automated dialers, or using an automated or prerecorded voice, without authorization or a recipient’s consent, violates 47 U.S.C. §227(b)(1):
"It shall be unlawful for any person within the United States, or any person outside the United States if the recipient is within the United States – (A) to make any call (other than a call made for emergency purposes or made with the prior express consent of the called party) using any automatic telephone dialing system or an artificial or prerecorded voice .... (iii) to any telephone number assigned to a paging service, cellular telephone service, specialized mobile radio service, or other radio common carrier service, or any service for which the called party is charged for the call...."
Consumers all over the country have sued Transworld Systems, Inc. for violations of the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) and for other unfair and abusive collection practices.
