Collection agency seeking to collect from Comcast
Regional Report / Collection agency seeking to collect from Comcast


A New Ulm collection agency once hired to nag thousands of delinquent cable customers for Comcast has sent a big bill to the national cable company for a past-due payment.

Lindy's Collection Service has taken its bill to court, first filing a lawsuit in Brown County District Court. The lawsuit was moved to federal court last week.

The lawsuit claims Comcast owes Lindy's $314,210 for canceling its contract with the collection agency in July. A copy of the contract included with the lawsuit said the cable provider agreed to pay a $5 return fee for any account it closed. Lindy's is claiming Comcast closed 62,842 accounts when the contract was canceled.

The collection agency also wants Comcast to provide accounting records for any payments it has received from clients who had been assigned to Lindy's Collection Service. The contract required Comcast to pay Lindy's 33 percent of all past-due payments collected. Lindy's is estimating Comcast owes at least $50,000 for those collections.
