When you’ve lost your job, keeping up with your credit card, student loans, and medical debt payments can be challenging and even impossible. When you’re no longer able to make the minimum payments, chances are high that a debt collector will soon be assigned to your accounts.

If this happens, it is important to know your rights as an indebted consumer.

Your Rights Under the FDCPA

The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) was passed in 1977 after debt collector harassment caused high numbers of consumers to declare bankruptcy.

In addition to giving you the right to dispute a debt and request its validation, it prohibits actions like the following and penalizes collection agencies that use them to settle a debt.

  • Using profane or obscene language
  • Calling before 8:00 a.m. and after 9:00 p.m. in your time zone
  • Contacting you after you have formally requested that all communications cease
  • Contacting you after you have sent a cease and desist letter
  • Calling you at work when they know that your employer prohibits such calls
  • Refusing to provide proof that you owe a debt and they are authorized to collect it
