Is a collection agency making your life miserable by calling day and night? Are you thinking about filing for bankruptcy to stop these intrusive and unwanted contacts? You don’t need to go that far: the law gives you the standing to fight back.
Your Rights Under the FDCPA
No matter how much you owe, you are protected by the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA). The Act gives you the right to dispute a debt and take legal action against a company that does any of the following:
● Contacting you after you are represented by an attorney
● Failing to warn you that a communication is from a debt collector
● Telling you that they can have you sent to prison if you don’t pay
● Calling your workplace
● Cursing and yelling at you over the phone
● Claiming to be attorneys (if they are not) or police officer
