Lawsuit claims Portland State debt collector violated state, federal law with ‘excessive fees’

“here is an example of a collection agency with a name thaty sounds like a law firm.  but remember even if they are a law firm, if they are engaging in the practice of debt collection, they are a debt collector.  therefore, they must adhere to the FDCA and other regulations just like any collection agency.  Another lesson why you cant just assume that because a debt collector sends you a bill, that it is valid and compliant.”
