Are You Being Called By Allen Lewis & Associates?

Stop the
Harassment

You have legal rights. We can help.

 


When you have a debt in collections, the agency assigned to your account will chase you for payment in ways that are not always fair or ethical. If this happens to you, don’t forget that you have rights that protect you against such treatment.

Your Rights Under the FDCPA

The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act protects consumers from being mistreated by over-zealous collection agencies. Today, any company that uses these pressure tactics on consumers can be penalized by the Federal Trade Commission and lose its license.

● Swearing and calling you names
● Calling you at work when your employer does not allow such calls
● Telling you that you will arrested if you don’t pay
● Ignoring your dispute
● Calling at inconvenient times
● Calling your family and telling them that you owe money
