According to a press release issued by the Santa Clara District Attorney’s office, Allied Interstate and iQor allegedly violated the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, the California Rosenthal Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, and the Telephone Consumer Protection Act by “calling consumers with excessive frequency, sometimes hundreds of times and sometimes calling the wrong person numerous times; failing to cease calling even when advised that they had reached the wrong number; and using a robo-dialer, known as a ‘predictive dialer,’ to place calls to the cell phones of consumers without having adequate proof that the consumer had consented to be called on their cell phone.”
