Are you being called by Acceptance Now LLC?* Here’s what you need to know.

Most of us owe money to credit cards, student loans, and other accounts. As long as we have a regular income, we can normally manage such debt and eventually pay it off. But if we are laid off or have our incomes cut due to disability and miss a certain number of payments, your creditors will likely submit the accounts to a third-party collection agency, some of whom can be ruthless when they want your money.

Your Rights Under the FDCPA

The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, or FDCPA, was passed in 1977 to protect consumers from unethical debt collectors. Under the FDCPA, collection agencies may not use bullying or deceptive tactics like the following when collecting or attempting to collect a debt.

  • Using profane and abusive language
  • Demanding outrageous ‘fees’ in addition to the original debt
  • Calling you at work after you’ve told them that your employer won’t let you take such calls
  • Claiming to be an attorney or a law enforcement official
  • Demanding amounts that exceed the original debt
  • Talking to uninvolved parties such as your friends, family, and co-workers about the debt
