What This Case Is About

Defendants attempted to collect consumer debts on behalf of LVNV Funding LLC (“LVNV”) or Pinnacle Credit Services, LLC (“Pinnacle”), from Plaintiffs and other New Jersey consumers.  Plaintiffs claim that those collection efforts on behalf of LVNV and Pinnacle violated the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (“FDCPA”), 15 U.S.C. § 1692 et seq., a federal law, because neither LVNV nor Pinnacle was licensed under the New Jersey Consumer Finance Licensing Act (“NJCFLA”), N.J.S.A. 17:11C 1 et seq. Defendants deny any wrongdoing.
