Are You Being Called By Capstone Credit & Collections, LLC?*

Harassment

You have legal rights. We can help.

 


Are you being called by Capstone Credit & Collections, LLC?* Here’s what you need to know.

If you’ve fallen behind on your monthly obligations by at least three months, you’ve probably been contacted by a debt collector. These communications are not generally enjoyable but for some consumers, the calls and emails can be traumatic. This is because many debt collectors use harassment and abuse to obtain debt payments, not caring that they are breaking the law.

Your Rights Under the FDCPA

The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) regulates the ways that third-party debt collectors may approach you about paying a debt. Actions like those below are illegal when used to ‘convince’ a consumer to pay.

  • Using profane or obscene language
  • Threatening legal actions that they have no intention of taking
  • Telling you that you can be arrested for not paying your debts
  • Calling at inconvenient times, such as before 8:00 a.m. and after 9:00 p.m. in your time zone
  • Calling you at work if they know or have reason to know what such calls are not allowed
  • Refusing to provide proof that a debt even exists and that they are authorized to collect it
