Are you getting calls from Agency of Credit Control, Inc.? Learn how to protect your rights!

Anyone can find themselves suddenly hit by money problems. Job loss, injury, or a personal crisis such as divorce or emergency house repairs all have a detrimental effect on household income, so when bills go unpaid, the accounts are turned over to a third-party collection agency or sold to a junk debt buyer, and the calls and letters begin.

What you need to know is that these companies may attempt to collect a debt, but bullying you in the process is against the law.

Your Rights Under the FDCPA

Before the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, or FDCPA, was passed in 1977 to protect consumers from ruthless and predatory debt collectors, tactics like the following were routine.

  • Using profane and abusive language
  • Calling the consumer at work after being informed that the workplace does not allow non-business calls
  • Telling the debtor’s friends, neighbors, and uninvolved family members about the debt
  • Ignoring a cease communications notice or directly contacting someone who has legal representation with regards to the debt
  • Failing to identify themselves as debt collectors collecting a debt
  • Failing or refusing to validate the debt
