You have legal rights. We can help.


We get ourselves into debt to buy homes, automobiles and other expensive items. But as long as our income is regular, repayment is rarely a problem. If we run into financial problems and can’t pay back all that debt, debt collectors will start harassing us for payment. Many of them take things too far, hoping that we won’t attempt to fight for our rights.

Your Rights Under the FDCPA

The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA), which was passed in 1977, gives consumers the right to dispute a debt and order the collector to cease communications. It also prohibits third-party collection agencies from using approaches like the following:

  • Using profane and abusive language
  • Threatening to have you arrested
  • Persisting in trying to collect a disputed debt
  • Refusing to provide you with information about the debt upon request
  • Pretending to be police officers or federal agents
  • Calling you outside of the hours of 8:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m.

Alleged Violations against Apex Financial Management*

According to PACER, in or around mid-2009, Apex Financial Management began calling an Illinois consumer to collect a debt. She complained that the agency constantly called her at work and discussed the debt with her co-workers, even though she told the company that such calls were not allowed.

Feeling harassed by Apex Financial Management, the consumer filed an FDCPA lawsuit against the company for allegedly:

  • Calling her at work after being asked to stop
  • Using harassing and abusive means to collect a debt
  • Discussing the debt with third parties

The matter was later settled.
