Accounts Receivable Management is a collection agency that has been in business since 1975. Accounts Receivable Management is headquartered in Thorofare, New Jersey, and has offices in Louisville, Kentucky, and Midland, Georgia. Accounts Receivable Management collects on debt originally owed to credit card companies, retail stores, hospitals, auto finance companies, and student loan companies.

According to its Web site, Accounts Receivable Management’s “commitment to service and excellence is second to none.” However, according to its track record, Accounts Receivable Management’s collection activities shed a much different light when analyzed under the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act. The FDCPA has been around for almost 35 years. The FDCPA is a federal law that applies to every state. In other words, everyone is protected by the FDCPA. The FDCPA is essentially a laundry list of what debt collects can and cannot do while collecting a debt, as well as things debt collectors must do while collecting a debt.

According to the Public Access to Court Electronic Records (PACER), Accounts Receivable Management has been sued over 100 times in the last 3 years for debt collection harassment. It does not get any better for Accounts Receivable Management on the Better Business Bureau. The Better Business Bureau has processed over 70 billing/collection issues, and over 85 total complaints, regarding Accounts Receivable Management in the last three years.

Accounts Receivable Management has several telephone numbers it places debt collection calls from.

Is Accounts Receivable Management harassing you over a debt?

"Data" was correct all the way. That fine remains the highest for the collection industry. I think it had a lot to do with Academy hurriedly rebranding as Monarch.

JB, the hounding for SSN or other personal data is to ensure you are the correct target and avoid a privacy breach, a sore spot for consumer lawsuits.

Before they would talk to me, they wanted me to verify the last four digits of my social security card, when I refused, they refused to talk to me, again, they asked for my social security number, again I refused, they argued, I hung up.

The rep did sound like he was in India, but said his name is Raymond Chaps- sure! Only when I asked, he gave the name of the company as Monarch Recovery Management & said they were in Philadelphia. We check our credit reports regularly & there are NO outstanding debts still on the reports. These are just more scumbag collectors that try to collect on debts WAY outside the statute of limitations!

KNOW YOUR RIGHTS! Don't give them a penny toward a debt out side your state's statute of limitations!

You've no obligation to the collector at all, DKL. Document calls and see if they become numerous or impolite. If it was me, Jessica, I would make Caller ID my friend and not respond to every call, thus making it harder to learn how active your line is.

If you are receiving repeated, misdirected, and/or abusive calls from a third party debt collector, you may find relief in the provisions of the FDCPA, the Federal law which regulates collector behavior and provides you simple tools for your own defense. It grants you control of how you are contacted, and collectors can be sued for their crimes. Learn your rights and first response tactics at FTC-dot-gov. See also your state laws for additional support.
