You have legal rights. We can help.


When a debt collector calls you nonstop even after you’ve disputed the debt or indicated an inability to pay, legal debt collection changes into illegal harassment. If you’re ever in this position and facing a collection agency that just won’t quit, read on to learn more about your rights.

Your Rights Under the FDCPA

The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, or FDCPA, is a consumer protection law that specifies what third-party debt collectors may say or do to settle a debt. Unprofessional approaches like those listed below are illegal when used as a collection tactic.

  • Swearing and using profane language
  • Demanding amounts that exceed the original debt
  • Calling at all hours of the day and night
  • Threatening legal action they have no intention of taking
  • Discussing the debt with your family, friends, and co-workers
  • Leaving voice messages that do not identify the collector and the purpose of their call
