Are you being called by Alpat Company, Inc.?* Here’s what you need to know

When you’re struggling to make ends meet, it gets worse when debt collectors start calling and sending you letters, demanding payments you can’t afford. Sometimes you get so stressed-out that you wonder if bankruptcy is the only way to make it stop. While bankruptcy can deliver a fresh start financially, a consumer attorney can help you bring the collection agency under control.

Your Rights Under the FDCPA

The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, or FDCPA regulates how debt collectors can communicate with consumers about accounts they have been assigned to settle. Since 1977, when the law took effect, approaches like the following have been illegal.

  • Using profane and obscene language
  • Revealing details about the debt with anyone but you, your spouse, or your attorney
  • Pretending to be attorneys, police officers, or federal agents
  • Contacting you at your workplace after being advised that such calls are not permitted
  • Threatening action they are not in a position to legally take
  • Threatening to ruin your credit or have you arrested.
