We have repeatedly sued AFNI, a national collection agency, for violating the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act and the Fair Credit Reporting Act. AFNI’s response has always been to deny its wrongful conduct and to say any “mistakes” were isolated incidents. This week the Attorney General of Minnesota had to file suit against AFNI.
Here is a quote from the press release:
Minnesota Attorney General Lori Swanson today filed a lawsuit in Hennepin County District Court against AFNI, Inc., an Illinois debt collection agency, for attempting to collect debts from Minnesota citizens who stated they did not actually owe the debts and for failing to substantiate debt that consumers stated they did not owe.
