What Should You Do if You’re Contacted by Phillips & Cohen Associates Ltd.?

If you receive a letter from Phillips & Cohen Associates Ltd., the first step is to ask for your debt, or the debt of a deceased loved one, to be validated. All debt collection agencies must follow the same rules. This includes Phillips & Cohen. These rules are dictated in the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA).

Under the FDCPA, you can dispute a debt when a debt collection agency tries to collect. You are also entitled to receive written verification of a debt from the collection agency. This is called debt validation or debt verification. In the debt verification letter, it will outline what the debt is, how much is owed and any other pertinent information.

The second step you should take is to reach out to our qualified and compassionate debt settlement attorneys at McCarthy Law PLC. Our team of lawyers can help you navigate what to do when the debt collectors at Phillips & Cohen reach out to you, confirm if you actually owe anything, and stand by you to protect your interests.
