Under the FDCPA, collection agencies are not allowed to use harassing or abusive tactics to try to collect an alleged debt from you. This means they cannot do things like call you at odd hours, contact third parties (such as your employer or family members) about your alleged debt, or threaten to take legal action if they do not plan to. If a debt collector violates the FDCPA, then you may be able to receive up to $1,000 in damages. If a debt collector has called you repeatedly before 5:00 P.M. while you are at work, this may be considered a violation. If you answered a call and told them that the time is an inconvenience and that you cannot take personal calls at work but the calls continue, this would also be considered a violation. When you think a debt collector is using harassing tactics to collect an alleged debt, it's best to seek legal assistance from a creditor harassment attorney. A consumer rights lawyer can help you file a claim against the agency and help increase your chance of winning.
