A debt collector may tell you that you have no choice but to take their harassing calls, but the law says otherwise. In November, one collection agency was fined $9 million after allegations that it harassed Californian consumers with thousands of robocalls.

This is exactly the kind of conduct that consumer protection laws are designed to stop.

Your Rights Under the FDCPA

The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) penalizes third-party collection agencies that harass, deceive, and otherwise abuse consumers in ways like the following:

  • Calling you at work after you tell them that you can’t take personal calls there
  • Using obscene language
  • Demanding amounts that are not supported by law or the original creditor agreement
  • Calling you before 8:00 a.m. and after 9:00 p.m. in the your time zone
  • Trying to collect after you have formally disputed a debt
  • Refusing to validate the debt and prove that they are authorized to collect it
