When the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) was passed over 40 years ago, it was meant to protect consumers from debt collection agencies. This means that if you suspect a collection agency is using an abusive tactic that violates the FDCPA, you could be eligible for up to $1,000 in damages. An example of an FDCPA violation would be if you received a letter from a debt collection agency. If on the envelope, it's made blatantly obvious that it is a letter to collect a debt, then this would be in violation of the FDCPA. If you think you embarrassing means are being used to collect an alleged debt from you, contact a consumer rights attorney. With help from a lawyer, you can stop the abusive tacts and possibly receive up to $1,000 in damages. Here are some collection agencies and how you can stop the embarrassing means being used to collect a debt: CCB Credit Services CCS Companies C&D Complete Business Solutions CDI Affiliated Services, Inc.
