Have third-party debt collectors harassed you? Are you unable to sleep? Is debt collection affecting your job? If so, your rights as a consumer may have been violated. The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) was enacted to protect consumers from abusive tactics from third-party debt collectors. This means that if your rights were violated, you may have the option of taking the debt collector to court and earning up to $1,000 per violation, plus additional damages. Start Receiving Help Today Did you know that if you hire an FDCPA attorney, debt collectors are legally obligated to stop calling you? Any additional contact means your rights have been violated further, and you may be able to sue the debt collector for damages. Other violations such as calling many times per day or calling in the wee hours of the night are also eligible for an FDCPA lawsuit. A third-party collector also cannot contact any uninvolved family members, friends, neighbors, or colleagues regarding your debt. It’s possible to fight back against abusive tactics–all you need to do is start your claim today.
