The funniest thing about coming on here is reading about everyone that complains about collection agencies but don't pay their bills to start, if you paid your bills and handled your business none of this would happen.

I am disgusted by this company and am now experiencing anxiety attacks over this. It all started on 9/24/09 when I received a call from a man named George with an attorney firm stating that as of 2007 there was a balance with US Bank in the amount of $1977.20. He stated that a letter was sent 15 days ago to my current address. I stated that I never received the letter and I am the only one with a key to my mailbox. I live in an appartment complex and always receive neighbors mail and I receive theirs. George then told me that they are going to file court paperwork on October 8th. I asked for the detailed account information and he stated that I could obtain it in court. I stated that if I am disputing charges, legally they are required to provide me with the account information, he stated I would need to contact US Bank because he was not going to do the work for me. I stated that he has to understand that after 2 years I receive a phone call stating that money is owed, any person would question this. I was told that Regent Asset Mgmt was his client. I was finally, after much loud arguing while I was at work, able to get the number for Regent from George. I called Regent and spoke with Jonathan Hayes, whom was extremely flirty. He stated that the best he could do was settle for $1500.00. He specifically stated to reach into my left shoe and pull out $500.00, reach into my right shoe and pull out $500.00, and hit up my man for another $500.00. Who could possibly be so unprofessional? I basically told Jonathan that I currently already had a wage garnishment so there was nothing I could do at this time. He stated that George would probably file the paperwork for a wage garnishment within the next couple of days.
On 10/23/09 I contacted Regent again and spoke with Dennis Ross. We set up a payment plan, only in fear of this reflecting on my credit report, for $80.00 every other week until the end of the year. They would call me back after the end of the year to see if we could increase the payments. I received a letter from Dennis stating that I had 30 days to dispute it, which I did by fax and mail.
January 2010 Received a call from the attorney's office again. Called back and spoke with Sheila. Sheila stated that I should have never been paying Regent, I should have been paying the attorney's office. She stated she would call me back. Received a call back and per Sheila, I am to be paying them. Fine. Whatever. Told her that I had disputed Regent's letter and haven't received a response. I only authorized Regent to take money out until the end of December. Set up same payment plan with Sheila. Went to US Bank, no branch manager available. Employees could not give any information. One lady stated to another employee that he would have to help me because she needs to go to lunch or she will be penalized.
01/15/10 Noticed on my bank account that $80.00 was charged to my bank account from the one and only Regent Asset. Figured that it had to do with the attorney. Called Sheila on 1/18/10, left a message need to obtain clarrification about charge.
01/20/10 Never a return phone call, noticed that another $80.00 was taken out by the attorney.
I will be going to US Bank tomorrow on my lunch break to dispute everything. This place is a rip off and I will take them to small claims court if they do not provide any information as they are responsible to do according to the FDCPA and will dispute the $80.00 charge from Regent as this was an unauthorized transaction, which is fraud!

I am being contacted regarding a debt from this same company using 877-591-7740, Joe Green. I have requested a copy of the bill on every occassion and have yet to receive the bill. He finally identified the company he claims I owe. I am going to contact them directly and attempt to settle the debt directly with that organization. By law I am allowed a written verification of the debt and 30 days to reach some type of pymt agreement after the 1st attempt to collect the debt.

I have made several attempts to get a copy of the bill they claim I owe and to date no bill. If there is a legitimate debt, I am willing to settle but no bill, no settlement. I have attempted to reach the company they claim they are collecting on behalf of and no response, no bill. Once again no bill, no settlement. I have a Regents number of 877-591-7740. I have now spoken to Joe Green, Andrew Bauman and Velma in the Phoenix call center. I'm now going to contact the AZ State Attorney General.

***** PLEASE READ Re: Regent/Carruthers *****

I'll preface this post by telling you I am a debt collector, but also a consumer and what these people are doing egregiously violates numerous consumer laws.

Like most of you, in addition to phone calls from Regent, I too, received a letter from D. Scott Carruthers referencing an old checking account (which I settled years ago). The letter states I owe some 1300 dollars, 900 of which is interest. Even if I did owe the debt, this is illegal as the statutory rate for interest on an overdrafted checking account is 6% or less depending on which state you live in. [violation #1-FDCPA 807(2)(A)]
- "The false representation of the character, amount, or legal status of any debt."

The initial notice is from an attorney on his letterhead, but is not signed by the attorney, which is required by law.[violation #2-FDCPA 807(3)]
- "The false representation or implication that any individual is an attorney or that any communication is from an attorney."

"Unless the attorney has in fact reviewed the debtor's file and made a professional judgment that whatever action is threatened is appropriate, and the threatened action has been authorized by the creditor, the use of such letters is a violation of 1692e(3), which prohibits "[t]he false representation or implication that any individual is an attorney or that any communication is from an attorney."

In Clomon v. Jackson, the Second Circuit found that the use of an attorney's name in the letterhead of the debt collector's dunning letter, where the attorney did not review the file, violated the FDCPA.

The initial notice also does not contain the required statement that a consumer has 30 days to dispute any portion of the debt and/or request validation of said debt. [This is a blatant violation of FDCPA 809(a)]

Furthermore, the letter goes on to read "If you have not contacted Regent to discuss this settlement offer within 14 days, I will begin preparing your case for a lawsuit to be filed in XXXX county..." [violation #4-FDCPA 807(4)]
- "The threat to take any action that cannot legally be taken or that is not intended to be taken."

My research indicates this attorney is licensed only in CA and not in my state and therefore cannot directly take ANY legal action. Not to mention the alleged debt is beyond the statute of limitations in my state.

The irony here is that I work for a reputable law firm which lawfully collects on debts and we always conduct ourselves in a professional manner and we strictly adhere to all applicable laws provided to protect the consumer under the FDCPA.

I've been a debt collector for over 10 years and never had any complaints filed against me. These people give my industry a tarnished reputation and should be held accountable for their actions. Frankly I'm ashamed to even acknowledge that they work in the same profession.

So please, if you do owe a debt and a collector attempts to LAWFULLY collect on said debt, I encourage you to work with them. However, low-lifes like these need to be taught a lesson.

Hope this helps.

rather than say i would not pay them, i would first demand a debt validation. i sincerely doubt that they will validate, so in that case, i would than say do not pay them.
