Class Action Against ARS National Services (Associated Recovery Systems)
A statewide class action has been filed in California against collection specialist, ARS National Services, Inc.(aka Associated Recovery Systems) The action is brought on behalf of all California residents who received a collection letter from Associated Recovery which offered to settle the debt for a lesser amount, if immediate payment was made by the debtor. The action, brought under the federal Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, seeks statutory damages as well as injunctive and declaratory relief.
This action arises from the alleged policy of Associated in which they include in their collection letters an offer to settle the outstanding debt for a reduced rate. The settlement offer is, according to the letters, a limited offer, requiring immediate payment. According to consumers, this offer is misleading and deceptive because ARS National Services is allegedly always prepared to negotiate a settlement for a lesser amount. Thus, the language requiring immediate action is allegedly deceptive to consumers because they are given the impression that they need to act immediately in order to have an opportunity to discharge the debt at a reduced rate. The consumers claim that this has a coercive effect, limiting their ability to challenge the validity of the debt and limiting their ability to make an informed decision about the debt. The consumers allege that these letters are standard “form” type letters, mailed to thousands of consumers.
