It’s hard to know what to do when you’re in serious debt and collection agencies are calling you daily. What you DON’T have to do is tolerate mistreatment. Although debt collectors are infamous for bullying people for payment, all it takes is for you to make a call of your own- to an attorney.

Your Rights Under the FDCPA

The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) was passed in 1977 to regulate the interactions between debt collectors and consumers. Any person who owes a debt has the right to receive all relevant information about it and tell a debt collector to stop contacting them, while collection agencies are prohibited from actions like the following:

  • Demanding outrageous amounts that exceed the amount of the original debt
  • Pretending to be police officers or federal agents to frighten debtors into paying
  • Calling at inconvenient times, such as before 8:00 a.m. and after 9:00 p.m. in the consumer’s time zone
  • Using profane or obscene language
  • Trying to collect an amount that is not authorized by law or the original creditor agreement
  • Failing to identify themselves as debt collectors in each communication
