If you are dealing with consumer debt from NCB Management, Inc., you are probably wondering:

  • What are my rights against collection agencies?
  • Who will contact me to collect my debt?
  • What will happen if I fight the debt collection lawsuit?

What Are My Rights Against Debt Collection Agencies?

It is important to know your rights with regard to debt collectors’ obligations. For example, the following are violations of the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA):

  • A debt collector cannot call you before 8:00 AM or after 5:00 PM. If they regularly call you before or after these times, it can amount to harassment as well.
  • A debt collector cannot call you at your place of business.
  • A debt collector may not communicate with your friends and family and tell them about your debts.
  • A debt collector must identify themselves and the company they represent.

What Will Happen If I Fight My Debt Collection Lawsuit?

Debt collectors are efficient and usually profitable because people do not respond to debt collection lawsuit complaints; therefore, a default judgment in the amount they request is automatically entered on NCB Management's behalf. When you fight a debt collection lawsuit with the help of an experienced attorney, your attorney works to protect your rights.

What Must NCB Management Prove To Have A Claim?

Creditors tend to be thorough when filing a complaint because they want to ensure that all of their potential avenues for collection are covered. As a result, they may assert multiple causes of action:

  • Breach of Contract
  • Unjust Enrichment
  • Accounts Stated

Breach of Contract

A breach of contract claim essentially says that you agreed to pay a debt loaned to you and failed. However, suppose there are any provisions that the collection agency has breached. In that case, your attorney may be able to find them by reviewing the loan agreement, also known as a promissory note. Therefore, it is essential that you hire an experienced and knowledgeable attorney to handle your case.

Unjust Enrichment

An unjust enrichment claim has three elements that the collection agency must prove before they can have a successful unjust enrichment claim:

  1. The defendant received a benefit;
  2. The benefit was received at the plaintiff’s expense; and
  3. Under the circumstances, it would be unjust for the defendant to retain the benefit without commensurate compensation.

Accounts Stated

An accounts stated cause of action is a claim payment in which the plaintiff sent an invoice to the defendant, and the defendant failed to pay or object to the invoice in a timely manner. For example, the debt collection agency gave you a notice that your payment was 30, 60, or 90 days late, and you failed to make the required payment by the due date.

What Defenses Do You Have Against NCB Management?

There are a number of defenses that may result in the court dismissing your case or a large reduction in what you owe. Those defenses include:

  • Lack of Assignment
  • Bankruptcy
  • You were only an authorized user
  • Statute of Limitations

Lack Of Assignment

One of the first things that a collection agency must show in order to have a viable lawsuit is that they have the right to collect the debt. This can come through purchasing the debt but usually occurs through an assignment. If there was not a legal assignment, then the debt collection agency has no legal right to collect the debt, and the lawsuit must be dismissed.


If you have previously claimed bankruptcy while you owed certain debt, you generally cannot later be sued for collection of that debt. However, there are a lot of variables with regard to this defense. As a result, if you have previously filed bankruptcy and are being sued by NCB Management, it is important to hire an attorney to represent your rights and interests tenaciously.

Authorized User

If NCB Management is suing you over credit card debt you were not the owner of, they do not have a viable claim against you.

Statute Of Limitation

As of April 7, 2022, the statute of limitation for debt collection was reduced from six years to three years. The statute of limitations means that if you defaulted on your debt over four years ago, you could not be sued for the collection of that debt. That does not mean they cannot attempt to collect by calling you, sending you a notice, and reporting on your credit report.
