Dealing with more debt than you can hope to pay back can be so stressful that all aspects of your life are affected. Some debt collectors make your life even more unbearable by calling you nonstop and threatening dire outcomes if you don’t pay. What they don’t do is tell you that their conduct violates federal law.
Your Rights Under the FDCPA
The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) is designed to protect you from being harassed because you owe money. If you’re dealing with a collection agency that mistreats you in ways like the following, you can order it to stop contacting you and file a lawsuit if they don’t.
● Using profane and obscene language
● Telling your friends, neighbors, and co-workers about the alleged debt
● Calling you at work after you’ve told them that your employer doesn’t allow such calls
● Pretending to be members of law enforcement
● Threatening legal actions that they have no intention of taking
● Demanding outrageous ‘fees’ that inflate the debt
