Called By American Adjustment Bureau? Here’s What to Know

Stop the
Harassment

You have legal rights. We can help.

 


Although you can fall into debt often through no fault of your own, debt collectors rarely care: they simply want you to pay and can pressure and harass you if you don’t. If this happens to you, remember that mistreating consumers is not only unethical, it’s illegal, and you can sue for compensation.

Your Rights Under the FDCPA

The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, or FDCPA, was passed in 1977 to protect consumers from being mistreated to the point of desperation by collection agencies. It regulates communications between debt collectors and consumers, and prohibits actions like those below.

  • Swearing and calling you names
  • Failing or refusing to identify themselves as debt collectors
  • Using an autodialer to call you
  • Calling at inconvenient times
  • Talking about the debt to anyone except you, your spouse, or your attorney
  • Pretending to be members of law enforcement
