Law Offices of Howard G. Smith announces an investigation on behalf of Encore Capital Group, Inc. ("Encore" or the "Company") (NASDAQ: ECPG) investors concerning the Company’s possible violations of federal securities laws.

On September 8, 2020, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau ("CFPB") filed a complaint alleging that Encore and its subsidiaries violated a consent order "by suing consumers without possessing required documentation, using law firms and an internal legal department to engage in collection efforts without providing required disclosures, and failing to provide consumers with required loan documentation after consumers requested it."

On this news, the Company’s share price fell sharply during intraday trading on September 9, 2020.
