RevOne Companies, LLC and seven of its “divisions” have been named in a proposed class action accusing the companies of engaging in unlawful debt collection practices.
The defendants allegedly sent a collection letter to the plaintiff in July 2017 regarding a debt owed to Columbia St. Mary’s for medical services. The lawsuit claims the letter contained false information. Specifically, the suit takes issue with the following statement:
“This collection agency is licensed by the Division of Banking in the Wisconsin Department of Financial Institutions, www.wdfi.org.”
The lawsuit alleges that the letter misrepresented the defendant’s licensing status, as the company did not hold a Wisconsin Collection Agency License on the date the aforementioned communication was sent to the plaintiff. The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act prohibits any false or misleading representation in debt collection efforts, the complaint says.
