On June 16, 2010, the collections abuse victim filed suit against GREEN TREE SERVICING, LLC, for violations of the FDCPA and RFDCPA. Mr. Ngo incurred a financial obligation from services provided for his family, personal, and household purposes, and as a result of the harassment and abusive tactics of the debt collectors, he was unable to receive a credit card from Bank of America. The collections abuse victim claimed to have suffered emotional distress as a result of the intentional, reckless, and negligent FDCPA violations and intentional, reckless, and negligent invasions of privacy, by:
(i) Contacting the victim at a place and during a time inconvenient for the victim;
(ii) Misrepresenting the character, amount, and legal status of the debt;
(iii) Communicating false credit information;
(iv) Failing to report that the debt was disputed to the credit bureaus;
(v) Employing false and deceptive means to collect the debt; and
(vi) Attempting to collect an amount not authorized by the agreement creating the debt.
