If you want to know just how unhappy consumers are with Coastal Credit, 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 Coastal Credit 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 Coastal Credit took unauthorized deductions from your bank account, you may have an EFTA claim against the agency. Coastal Credit, 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 moreper month. If you agreed to this type of reoccurring payment, the agency must follow certain steps to comply with the EFTA. Did Coastal Credit 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 Coastal Credit 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 Coastal Credit’s debt collection. We will send a cease-and-desist letter to stop the harassment today, and if Coastal Credit 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 thousands of consumers stop phone calls. 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 ofthe 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 Coastal Credit 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.REMEMBER…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.

1. I was deployed didn’t know my allotment stopped. 2. Contacted the company told them my situation we agreed on a payment plan. Made the payments then they demanded I surrender the vehicle. I did. Car goes to auction. Never heard anything. I get out the Army medical discharge and I started getting wage garnishment for over 15k. Looking for some professional assistance.
Bought a car in Virginia Beach in 2010. I was martially separated, and needed reliable transportation to take me to my next duty station. I was happy with my purchase and paid $470 per month through allotment. I was separated from the Navy in December of 2012, my understanding was Coastal Credit was to pay off my vehicle at that time and send me the title. Instead they sent a repo guy, and have filed multiple lawsuits against me ever since. I have been informed through my employer that they are garnishing me now. A little research found that they got a judgement against me in 2015 , in the state of Virginia. But failed to spell my name correctly. The incorrect spelling prevented me from receiving notices.
I'm being sued by Coastal Credit after 3yrs of them reposting it and selling the vehicle at an auction for 300.00. Now they want to sue me and garnish my wages
Coastal credit is very rude and have poor customer service especially the billing/collection department. I have my car finance through them but somehow the paperwork i have don't match my vin number on my car it just seem like I'm paying for the wrong car I tried to tell them that but they didnt want to hear it i need to pay for the right car!
Billing/Collection department is very rude they have poor customer service and they got me paying on a car thats not even mine car my vin number dont match whats on the title so I feel like I shouldnt be paying on a car that isn't mine and they need some training on customer service
Hi I have been having issues with coastal credit llc. I was behind according to them two payments but actually I was only behind 1 payment and they said I have to pay $500 and then pay $150 every two weeks. I'm a one income home and don't make a lot of money and this is the second time hey have gone back on their word. To top it all off they added an extra $4000 to what I owe. I need advice on how to get them to stop changing the payment plans we set up. And to stop their rude customer service tactics. I set up the arrangement but what to know if I should cancel the arrangement because I feel it's not right. I do not make a lot of money as it is. Thank yoh!
In 2012, I filed Chapter 7 Bankruptcy for the opportunity to focus on my student loans. I looked into my student loans and noticed that there was a consolidated loan from 2012 that I had never heard of or remembered being approved for. Even though I did apply for one, I assumed I was denied. The loan went into default and now Coast Professional is handling the loan on behalf of the Dept of Education for the original consolidation amount and the interest. I do not think I owe ANY interest (or really the loan but let's focus on the interest for now), partly because I was never notified of having received the loan to begin with. Unfortunately, Sallie Mae had been sending all of my bills to the wrong address and now I'm at a loss. Do I have a case? What are my options?
Just curious as to what kind of services you alloffer? I have a college debt from over 10 years ago but i honestly forgot about it. I received an invoice from Coastal collection company recently and they even called my mom. I don't mind paying the bill, but i want to see if they'll know some of it down, seeing it's been over 10 years and it never went on my credit report, i was thinking they might be willing to settle for maybe half of it. I'm trying to figure out if i need your services or it i should just see if the university can do something about it?
