Called By Bayview Loan Servicing, LLC*? Here's What You Need to Know

Stop The Harassment

You have legal rights. We can help.

 

If you’ve been unable to meet your monthly obligations for awhile, the next time your phone rings it could be a debt collector on the line. While they are legally permitted to try collecting any unpaid and overdue balances, they are not allowed to deceive, harass or intimidate you. If they do, you have recourse under the law.

Your Rights Under the FDCPA

The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, or FDCPA, was passed in 1977 and regulates what third-party collectors can say and do while attempting to collect a debt. It prohibits actions like those below.

  • Using profane or obscene language
  • Leaving voice messages that do not identify the collector and the purpose of their call
  • Demanding outrageous amounts that exceed the amount of the original debt
  • Calling you at work when such calls are not allowed
  • Threatening to seize your property or garnish your wages
  • Refusing to provide proof that you owe a debt and they are authorized to collect
