Chase Bank is a national bank and the front for JPMorgan Chase & Co., which conducts business as “Chase Bank.” Chase Bank is based in New York City and JPMorgan Chase is one of the nation’s “Big Four” banks alongside Bank of America, Citigroup, and Wells Fargo.Founded in 2000, Chase Bank now operates in 100+ countries. JPMorgan Chase is the U.S.’s largest bank and sixth-largest in the world by total assets; however, it is not accredited with the Better Business Bureau and has received an “F” rating along with over 2,200 BBB complaints in the past three years, most of which are for product/service problems (1,500+) and billing/collection problems (600+).JPMorgan Chase also has a well-documented criminal history; two of their recent scandals are as follows. According to the BBB: “On May 20, 2015, JPMorgan Chase & Co., along with four other major banks, agreed to plead guilty to felony charges of conspiring to manipulate the price of U.S. dollars and euros exchanged in the foreign currency exchange (FX) spot market.” This resulted in criminal fines exceeding $2.5 billion. Just two months later, in July 2015, the bank was targeted by the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) and 47 Attorneys general for illegally “robo-signing” court documents and selling “zombie debts” (credit card debts which were not legally collectible due to discharge, settlement, expired time-limit, or other errors or inaccuracies) to third-party debt collectors, resulting in $136 million in penalties to benefit the states and the CFPB and $50 million in consumer refunds.
Chase Bank likely uses hundreds of different phone numbers to call consumers. Here are some phone numbers Chase Bank may be calling you from:
If you want to know just how unhappy consumers are with Chase Bank, take a look at the number of complaints consumers have made online. Nowadays, most original creditors, credit card companies, etc. have arbitration clauses, which means that if you have a complaint against that company, you must file your claim in arbitration. Arbitration limits discovery, is not public, has a limited appellate process, and, most importantly, is funded primarily by the banks and big businesses. While it can be difficult to get a fair chance in arbitration, the good news is we have filed hundreds of credit harassment cases in arbitration, and we know how to aggressively fight these cases against the big banks and businesses even when arbitration is necessary.
The Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA) protects you from robocalls, which are those annoying, automated, recorded calls that computers make all day long. You can tell it’s a robocall because either no one responds on the other end of the line, or there is a delay when you pick up the phone before a live person responds. You can receive $500 per call if Chase Bank violates the TCPA. Have you received a message from this agency that sounds pre-recorded or cut-off at the beginning or end? These are tell-tale signs that the message is pre-recorded, and if you have these messages on your cell phone, you may have a TCPA case against the agency.
The Electronic Fund Transfer Act (EFTA) protects electronic payments that are deducted from bank accounts. If Chase Bank took unauthorized deductions from your bank account, you may have an EFTA claim against the agency. Chase Bank, like most collection agencies, wants to set up recurring payments from consumers; imagine how much money it can earn if hundreds, even thousands, of consumers electronically pay them $50 - $100 or more per month. If you agreed to this type of reoccurring payment, the agency must follow certain steps to comply with the EFTA. Did Chase Bank continue to take electronic payments after you told them to stop? Did they take more money from your checking account than you agreed to? If so, we can discuss your rights and potential case under the EFTA.
The Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) works to ensure that no information reported to your credit report is false. In essence, it gives you the right to dispute those inaccuracies that you find on your credit report. We’ve handled many cases in which a debt collection agency reported debt on a consumer’s credit report to obtain leverage over the consumer. If Chase Bank is on your credit report, they may tell you that they’ll remove the debt from your credit report if you pay it; this is commonly known as “pay for delete.” If the original creditor is on your report rather than the debt collector, and you pay off the debt, both entities should accurately report this on your credit report.
Several states also have laws to provide its citizens an additional layer of protection. For example, if you live in California, Florida, Michigan, Montana, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Texas, or Wisconsin, you may be able to add a state-law claim to your federal law claim above. North Carolina, for example, has one of the most consumer-friendly statutes in the country: if you live in NC and are harassed over a debt, you may receive $500 - $4,000 in damages per violation. We work with a local counsel in NC and our NC clients have received some great results in debt collection harassment cases. If you live in North Carolina and are being harassed by a debt collector, you have leverage to obtain a great settlement.
We will use state and federal laws to immediately stop Chase Bank’s debt collection. We will send a cease-and-desist letter to stop the harassment today, and if Chase Bank violates the FDCPA, EFTA, FCRA, or any state law, you may be entitled to money damages. For example, under the FDCPA, you may receive up to $1,000 in damages plus actual damages. The FDCPA also has a fee-shift provision, which means the debt collector will pay your attorneys’ fees and costs. If you have a TCPA case against the agency, we will handle it based on a contingency fee and you won’t pay us a dime unless you win.
THAT’S NOT ALL…
We have helped hundreds of consumers stop phone calls from Chase Bank and we know how to stop the harassment and get you money damages. Once again: you will not pay us a dime for our services. We will help you based on a fee-shift provision and/or contingency fee, and the debt collector will pay your attorneys’ fees and costs.
Based on our experience, some debt collectors may credit-report, which means one may mark your credit report with the debt they are trying to collect. In addition to or instead of the debt collector, the original creditor may also be on your credit report in a separate entry, and it’s important to properly identify these entities because you will want both to update your credit report if or when you pay off the debt.
THE GOOD NEWS IS…
If Chase Bank is on your credit report, we can help you dispute it. Mistakes on your credit report can be very costly: along with causing you to pay higher interest rates, you may be denied credit, insurance, a rental home, a loan, or even a job because of these mistakes. Some mistakes may include someone else’s information on your credit report, inaccurate public records, stale collection accounts, or even being a victim of identity theft. If you have a mistake on your credit report, there is a process to dispute it, and my office will help you obtain your credit report and dispute any inaccurate information.
If a credit reporting agency violates its obligations under the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA), you may be entitled to statutory damages up to $1,000, and the credit reporting agency will be required to fix the error. The FCRA also has a fee-shift provision, which means the credit reporting agency will pay your attorneys’ fees and costs. You won’t owe us a dime for our services. We have helped hundreds of consumers fix inaccurate information on their credit reports, and we’re ready to help you, too.

Harassment Cases Settled
my mother has requested a release of funds from a foreclosure that is over 4 years old, and we are waiting for the funds to pay off some debts, but the calls are getting out of hand. we have some payday loans and a couple of doctor bills that we are pushing off paying until the settlement comes thru. The response time for anyone wanting claims on the funds was 3/14 and I am not sure how long it will take for the judge to make a final decision, and NO ONE will answer that for me. It is a substancial amount, over $15,000. I do have chase harassing me with a payment they made in error for a pay day loan, and they say I owe them funds to, but it was their mistake!
We are getting a multitude of phone calls from Chase regarding our mortgage. When we refinanced, They promised our payment due date could be on the 15th (?). We asked this because of the date his SS comes in. But when the refi was completed, our payments were due on the 1st instead. So now they call us a lot for payment, because we pay it around the 20th. They called 6 times last week. And occasionally, they call 2-3 times a day sometimes. Your website says this: If Chase has done anyone of the following, contact Agruss Law Firm, LLC, for a free case evaluation. Called you after you told them to stop calling you!
Chase bank is calling my mother.s house phone and my cell phone multiple times per day. I would like it to stop and be reimbursed for the abuse. Is this possible? I opened a checking account with them and authorized a monthly check withdrawl of $30,00 for ny son;s dental insurance. A check bounced and they put it through again (the same check). Each time it was submitted, they charged the account $35.00. I deposited $100 to cover it and left $50.00 in the savings account. I told them tokeep it and close the account. They wanted more money to close it so I walked out. My mother is 95 years old and has had a massive stroke. I have asked them to stop calling but they persist. They have had more than enough compensation for this check. They are taking advantage of the situation!
I have sent Chase several letters disputing the debt. They continue to call me without verifying the debt.
I received a strange call from Chase online banking confirming my attempt to start a online banking account, along with a 8 digit access code and this phone # 866-355-3744. The phone number appears on your list as debt agency for J P Morgan Chase. I made the mistake of calling this number and speaking to three different persons and confirming sensitive identity questions with them, and in the end I asked them if they knew whose number this was. They said it is not a Chase number and that I should get a new credit card.
