The Langel Firm Takes Action Against Cohen & Slamowitz for FDCPA Violations

The factual allegations of this case[1] include demanding conflicting debt amounts, inconsistent interest accrual amounts, deceptive representations as to a "settlement," and the improper shifting of "court costs."

Other allegations in our case include:

  • Alleging a "stipulated" amount had been reach when no such agreement was made;
  • Maintaining two lawsuits for the same debt;
  • Demanding court costs for a debt lawsuit that had been discontinued; and
  • Claiming that an offer to settle the debt for 80% amounted to "pennies on the dollar."

The alleged creditor is Midland Funding, LLC. The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) is a broad, remedial statute that holds debt collectors, such as Cohen & Slamowitz, LLP, strictly liable for representations that are false, deceptive, and/or misleading.
