Suburban Drivers Overcharged for Old Parking Tickets

This article demonstrates why the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act is so important. Had this collection agency’s actions been covered by the FDCPA, we suspect they would have been successfully sued over this practice long ago, which would have put an end to it. Unfortunately, collections of municipal fines have been found not to be covered. However, there are other legal theories that we believe we can use to help the victims. If you believe you are a victim of these suburban parking ticket overcharges, please contact us.
