Stop the
Harassment

You have legal rights. We can help.

 


Are you being called nonstop by a debt collection agency that threatens you with wage garnishments and lawsuits? Do collectors call you at work to abuse and embarrass you? Such conduct is illegal, and you can make it stop.

Your Rights Under the FDCPA

Although they will never admit it, debt collectors are not allowed to intimidate or harass you to collect a debt. The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, or FDCPA, prohibits manipulative collection strategies like the following.

● Using profane and obscene language
● Calling before 8:00 a.m. and after 9:00 p.m. in your time zone
● Calling you several times per day using an autodialer
● Pretending to be law enforcement
● Telling you that you can be imprisoned if you don’t pay
● Reporting false information to the credit bureaus

Alleged Violations against American Credit Bureau

According to PACER, in or around June of 2014, American Credit Bureau began calling a California consumer about a debt. She claimed that the agency called her employer and asked for personal information about her, and that one collector left her coworker a message stating that they wanted to talk to her about a credit issue. In October, one collector allegedly told her that she would be sued if she did not pay immediately.

Feeling harassed by American Credit Bureau, the consumer took the company to court for:

● Making unfounded legal threats
● Discussing her situation with third parties
● Using abusive means to collect a debt

The matter was later settled.
