You have legal rights. We can help.


Every time the phone rings, you worry that it’s the debt collection agency calling again. They yell at you because you can’t afford to pay your overdue credit card bill, not since you lost your job and failed to find another one. Fortunately, there are legal ways to make them stop.

Your Rights Under the FDCPA

The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, or FDCPA, was passed in 1977 to protect consumers from aggressive debt collection practices. Under this law, actions like the following are illegal when used to collect a debt.

  • Calling you outside of the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 9:00 p.m.
  • Pretending to be members of law enforcement
  • Discussing the debt with anyone except you, your spouse, or your attorney
  • Calling you names like loser or deadbeat
  • Reporting false information to the credit bureaus
  • Illegally re-aging the debt to make it valid once more
